Two questions relative the HRP-4C:
Does stalking a robot constitute a crime under most nation's criminal codes?
Can a robot get a Restraining Order against a human?

I wouldn't think that stalking a Bot would be a crime no more than following a car is...it's what you do after you have stalked the Bot or car that matters...it's a piece of private property with ownership so if you damage it you can be charged to pay for it.

Until a Robot becomes a " sentient being "I for one hope that we never get so stupid as to give ourselves over to control of a machine of any kind , they are tools nothing more, advanced tools but just tools.

As far as a restraining order I think " DANGER KEEP BACK HEAVY MACHINERY OPERATING THAT CAN KILL YOU " should be restraining enough for most of us and for the others well you've heard about the "gene pool " thing.

I'm still all HEXY even without a flashy banner.......

Very cool, but some what scary to think a machine can move that fast. Bet when they field test this one they will hold on to their hats with both hands.

Thanks for the post Xan! Petman is AWESOME! I wonder if they could turn him into a boxing or martial arts robot - that would be cool! :mrgreen:
Thanks Zenta for the Cheetah robot video - I would love to have one of those as a pet! :mrgreen:

ROBOTS FTW! ^____^
