I seem to remember an early scene in Westworld where guys are in bed with robotic women, before Yul Brynner goes psycho. Perhaps I dreamt it as a teenager, which was the last time I saw Westworld.

You could be right, that's about how long it's been since I saw it myself.  My mind always goes to Cherry2000 when fucking & robots comes up in a conversation.  Both because that's what the goal was and because I really thought Melanie looked pretty damn hot.

It was pretty heavily implied that sex with the robots was happening, especially in RomeWorld (and in KnightWorld too).

Yul Brenner is the most memorable thing about "Westworld" though.

Ah the whole movie's on YouTube. Sex robots in Westworld 1973: right-click and open on YouTube (not F13 pop-up) to start at that scene.

Was that movie any good?  Its based on a Philip K Dick story that I really liked (The Second Variety).  From the description, it sounds like its only vaguely similar to the story however.  Also, I'm not sure what it has to do with robot fucking.

Arise!  I give you Cheetah Bot.

Quote
Perhaps you thought the four-legged BigDog robot wasn’t eerily lifelike enough. That’ll change soon. BigDog’s makers are working on a new quadruped that moves faster than any human and is agile enough to “chase and evade.”

Boston Dynamics, maker of the Army’s BigDog robotic mule, announced today that Darpa has awarded it a contract to build a much faster and more fearsome animal-like robot, Cheetah.

As the name implies, Cheetah is designed to be a four-legged robot with a flexible spine and articulated head (and potentially a tail) that runs faster than the fastest human. In addition to raw speed, Cheetah’s makers promise that it will have the agility to make tight turns so that it can “zigzag to chase and evade” and be able to stop on a dime.

Well that's actually more reassuring. All you have to do to disable it is hit it in the knee or whisper about its dead father.

Well, I really have to hand it to DARPA.  Compared to all the other shit we blow money on, they've continued decade after decade to be the some best money we spend on driving innovation that has big impacts in the world.

Just discovered this by googling around out of interest after reading that article.  Back in 2008, they held the DARPA Urban Challenge.  Carnegie Mellon University won the race (and it was a rather impressive feat).  They were then picked up by Caterpillar to develop the driver less dump trucks, using the technology they developed for the race.  And now in 2011 we have hundreds of driver-less death trucks running around in the desert in Australia.

Also recently of course is the Apple iPhone 4S.  Of which the voice technology (Siri) was also developed by DARPA.

Inventing the internet was also pretty sweet of them.

In other Robot news, the US has been testing a series of next gen drone aircraft out at Edwards Air Force Base lately.  The Navy is developing a new carrier based drone that looks like a god damn UFO from the side:

http://www.innovationnewsdaily.com/x-47b-drone-cruise-flight-2305/

Boeing is also going to be test flying their "Phantom Eye" drone.  It has the wing span of a commercial Jet, can fly at 65,000 feet (out of range of most missiles) for 4 days straight, and runs on Hydrogen, with its only by product being water:

http://articles.economictimes.indiatimes.com/2011-10-31/news/30341975_1_unmanned-aircraft-drone-inaugural-flight

Boeing also has a stealth strike drone they're developing called the Phantom Ray, which has been in flight tests since earlier this year:

That's exactly the sort of thing Skynet would love to use to exterminate humans, after it's been scaled up and mounted with laser cannons and whatnot.

Who needs laser cannons (or scaling up)? Just a bit bigger with a teeny amount of explosive. Or just crashing the rotor blades into a human face, since they're agile.

Sand Flea Jumping Robot (from the creators of Bigdog). All it needs is some onboard plastic explosive. Or a poison dart gun. You're hiding out at night and there's a rattle on the roof...

One of these could probably sneak up on you.  Latest version of Big Dog (Alpha Dog) is far quieter and has had an outer shell attached that both carries cargo and helps it get back up on its own when it falls over.  Intended for use as a pack animal.

Meanwhile the same lab has produced the first legged robot that can outrun the world's fastest sprinter.  Only in the lab, on a treadmill and with an external power source, so far.

That thing is about as sneaky as a blind muskrat with cymbals strapped to it.  The recovery from falling down is pretty cool, though.
