Mar 8 2009Yikes!: Scary Robo-Kid Is No Child Of Mine

The iCub is an iStupidly named robot-child created by the RobotCub Consortium in Italy (not to be confused with Opus Dei). He was designed to have the movement and learning capabilities of a three-year old child and a face only a mother could love. A really loving mother. A blind one with no ears or sense of feeling in her hands.

The iCub is able to crawl and walk, make human-like eye and head movements and recognise and grasp objects like a toddler, scientists say.


'It's hoped the iCub will develop its cognitive capabilities in the same way as a child, progressively learning about its own bodily skills, how to interact with the world and eventually how to communicate with other individuals.'

Oh man, it seems like only yesterday I first learning about my own "bodily skills". Awh yeah -- you know the one I'm talking about: I can pull my thumb back all the way!

Thanks to Remo, Annie, Justin, Kyle and The Random Factor, who would never give birth to this thing.

That robot is obviously Caucasian. It has no sense of rhythm.

This is a complete photoshop job. YOu can tell its a fake because the shadow's are all wrong.

This is exactly like that scene in the movie Never Bck Don where Max didn't want to go to school so he told his mom he had a bit of a pain in the gulliver.

I actually clicked on daisy's link.
Holy s hit, what a bunch of retards.

Holy shot that thing is creepy! It's a good thing they have it stuck to the wall or it could suddenly get curious about what your insides look like..

I never really shared in your robophobia before, but that video made me into a believer!

6/7 when your asinine post is so long that it warrants skipping numbers, you've failed on 8 levels.

Currently, I can see a few advertisements for millionaire romance site, you are wasting your time in doing such a thing! I have joined more than 10 different sites till now, I know your sites are new established and need more people to join, but you can`t deny only "C e l e b m i n g l e. C 0 M " is the best one. It has been reported by many famous TV shows and it works for only quality singles! Stop advertise for your sites here!!

Beep! Be aware this robot isn't legal of age robot-freaks! They shouldn't show his innerparts! Boop blop!
