Wheeeeew!
I'm sure glad they're using their time, intelligence (and our money) to do something important and beneficial to humanity or the planet like making killer robots, rather than say, combatting global warming or over-population or pollution or unemployment or helping the millions of hungry, destitute people around the world.
Now that's progress!

Naw, Number 7 in the red dress. Those Japanese lifelike robots just really creep me out. Makes me think of cylons. Put that with a fully capable cyber brain and you have a cylon.
