_____ Ellis says:

I don't mind robots but actually congratulate their success so far but seeing the life looking one creep me out. I feel I'm not the only one, I rather see a robot that looks more like a robot (machined parts and whatever) and I think Ill feel a lot more comfortable and think others might be as well.

what a repulsive thing that someone created a robot that imitates a human baby absolutely disgusted
