Well, with my luck I'd end up as Marvin, from the Hitchhiker's Guide.

I see you more as Zaphod.  Cavebear is clearly a Vogon ;-)  I would be Slartibartfast ;-))  I like those fiord bits.

I love the part about the AI elevator going mad, and sharing its insanity with elevator riders!

Here's a really graceful robot, almost moves like a figure skater:

I tend to think that an intelligent robot should not very humanoid, and that a humanoid robot should be as dumb as a box of rocks (to perform very limited specific tasks).  I don't like the idea of building our own replacements.

I really don't see what difference it makes.

It's the perception.  A dumb humanoid robot isn't a threat, and a smart non-humanoid robot might not be one either.  But a smart humanoid robot, aye, there's the rub.

Well, I've heard the idea that humans are creating their successors. I don't have a problem with that.

I'm OK with that IF I can upload.  And really, I don't think I would mind that.

Who will replace you here?  Are you building him now?

This isn't a robot, but could be made autonomous someday and become like a flying robotic car. It's a manned homemade drone!
