There's a lot of interesting news lately on the technology front. The Japanese have developed an android that looks like a full-grown woman. (It's time to sell those stocks in the blow-up doll company, folks!) The robot, Ms. Repliee Q1 has flexible silicone for skin rather than hard plastic, and a number of sensors and motors to allow her to turn and react in a human-like manner. She can even flutter her eyelids, move her hands and breathe. Will some company soon be selling a colony of stepford wives to well-heeled lonely men?
Then there's a new device called a PSP browser that can be used to watch downloaded movies, surf the internet, or play games. The new device will make it easier to fill those few empty minutes away from the tube with worthwhile activities such as TV watching or video-games (or blogging).
