Freaky Friday - Androids

Last Friday, I talked about DARPA and their research and development of sophisticated robots. I'd come across their website and information about their work while researching my latest book, The Pendulum Files, which is due to be released in the spring of 2014.

At another end of the spectrum, there's the development of androids that look, act -- and some say will one day think -- like humans.

Below is a video of one research company in the United States that is using Albert Einstein's famous face on their android in an attempt to mimic facial expressions:



And the Japanese are making tremendous strides in making lifelike androids:





Imagine the future as the military robots capable of performing tremendous feats are combined with the lifelike features of androids.
 
Then science fiction doesn't seem like "fiction" so much anymore, does it?
