A few days ago I talked with a friend about the future. It seems to me that life is rapidly changing into science fiction. He didn’t agree: we still have no flying cars, no A.I., no warp drive, etcetera. He has strong arguments, that I cannot beat with my vague intuitive feelings. This Einstein robot is a good illustration of what he is saying: it has nothing to do with Einstein, it is nothing but an elaborate toy. But somehow I found it creepy to watch.
