Do androids dream of electric sheep?

Well it looks like they well may be dreaming soon… and in Danish!  Wow, still far from perfect but it sure looks like Geminoid is taking android development to the next level.  Obviously there are lots of potential hurdles still to navigate – especially the moral ones. But ignoring those for a second I reckon this is worth marvelling at just for the realism that has been achieved in the model itself and its gestures and movement. 

Now wouldn’t it be interesting to see what would could be done if all the various research projects that are currently on the go in the this and associated areas could come together to make something (rather than someone) that showed how far we still have to go before we need concern ourselves with a Tyrellian future?
