Comments on 'Electric Sheep' Runs On Real Grass - EATR Robot
An 'electric sheep' that actually runs on biomass? (Read the complete story)

"haha has a different take on this...they say the robot is a corpse eating robot."

"It's still at the science fiction stage though isn't it? This hasn't actually been built yet."
(Nick Taylor 7/15/2009 5:47:23 AM)
"'Electric Sheep' was sort of a commentary about suburban life, wasn't it? Millions of little drones each pretending to be lord of his own little english country estate? The next step would be livestock."

"Nick, gid - I think that calling EATR a flesh-eating robot is a bit of a stretch. If you see one with this rescue robot attachment, though, you might want to run for it."
(Bill Christensen 7/15/2009 8:06:49 AM)
"The headline at Fox News is 'Upcoming Military Robot Could Feed on Dead Bodies' ... also fascinating is the list of what PEOPLE WHO READ THIS ALSO READ, i.e. 'Man Reportedly Kidnapped, Force-Fed Beer in Utah,' 'Son's Arrest in Ex-Girlfriend's Death, Daughter's Kidnapping Latest Chapter in Porn Family Saga,' 'Researchers Hunt Mythic Giant Northwest Earthworm,' 'Father Dies Trying to Save Son From Irate Driver in Chuck E. Cheese Parking Lot,' and 'Motorist Plunges to His Death After Driving Over Edge of Grand Canyon'"
(i never knew that 7/15/2009 4:45:43 PM)
"INKT - Well done. However, I confess that the "Mythic Giant Northwest Earthworm" story is starting to get to me. Speaking of which, I wonder if anyone else watched the 'Sand Serpents' movie on the SciFi - now SyFy (I think) - channel."
