Japanese develop 'female' android

Prof. Hiroshi Ishiguro, via BBC:
"We have found that people forget she is an android while interacting with her... It can respond to people touching it. It's very satisfying...

She can flutter her eyelids and move her hands like a human. She even appears to breathe."


O Love is the Crooked Thing

"I whispered, ‘I am too young,’
And then, ‘I am old enough’;
Wherefore I threw a penny
To find out if I might love.
‘Go and love, go and love, young man,
If the lady be young and fair.’
Ah, penny, brown penny, brown penny,
I am looped in the loops of her hair.

O love is the crooked thing,
There is nobody wise enough
To find out all that is in it,
For he would be thinking of love
Till the stars had run away
And the shadows eaten the moon.
Ah, penny, brown penny, brown penny,
One cannot begin it too soon."

-William Butler Yeats' Brown Penny
