Androids have become a reality

Human looking robots have always been a fantasy in the modern world. They are fictitious characters in movies, cartoons, comic strips, video games and children’s books. We dream that one day they’ll live alongside us and aid us in our everyday lives being caregivers and companions as depicted in the movie “I, Robot”. Yet, we fear that when that day comes, they would’ve have acquired far too much intelligence and will want to overthrow the human race. All these of course, are part of the imaginative mind that seeks to captivate and entertain. Yet, what was once only part of a dream is slowly taking form.
