what is it with robots?
everywhere.
in art, really.
example: modern "fun" design contains so many robots, you'd think you're in a japanese toy shop.
why?

we make everything look human, really. its just interesting that in the robot case machines are made to look like us, not just organic creatures.

Well, no. That's just cute. I'll bet a girl made it.

Men make robots that exalt humankind.

I don't think it is a "man" thing.

It is kind of like Frankenstein. Man creating something in his own image, and the image overpowers what man is.

Right now my friend is training a computer to replace his job. Sick, but machines are so prevalent in the world it's impossible to escape. Maybe robots are a way of examining this.
