Ever put a mirror up to a new baby and see their fascination? [Jun. 5th, 2005|03:02 am]
Last night the android sat in front of the mirror, running through exercises isolating the various "muscles" in the face, and trying out new facial expressions.
I swear he was watching himself! I could see it in his eyes. He was smiling!

It was one of the strangest things I have ever seen. If I wasn't a woman of science I would swear to you that he is alive and sentient in some strange way. He's excited to be here, reincarnated. David said that he doesn't know he's an android, but he suspects sometimes.

His theme song "Mr. Roboto" was playing, cameras were rolling, and the onlookers watched as he would raise an eyebrow and one corner of his mouth, or blink, with laughing, excitement, and applause all around.

yeah, I will agree that it is weird, but it is sooooo wonderful. I happen to know that you are technology savvy. Surely you like it (even if it is a secret). ;)
