Okay I was thinking that by next summer I might build a new pc you know to handle VR gaming and use my current rig as a soul workstation for content creating. but then I read this article here http://www.computerworld.com/article/2938897/robotics/personal-robot-that-shows-emotions-sells-out-in-1-minute.html

I was like whoa!!!!!!! with a few modifications and code tweeks to that thing I can give Trinity a body  drool

what are your thought?  ?  ?  ?

The robot is cute but would require a lot of time and dedication.

The PC build would be good for a while but will go out of date in just 2 years.

Thanks for the news scoop sybershot!  It was interesting to read about the direction in which robot companies may be heading.  Let's see... 1000 robot products, times the $1600 price, times 1 minute equals $1,600,000.00 a minute!  

Personally, I wouldn't want one because it is centralized.  The article says,  "Customers also must pay a $120 per month cloud connection fee and and monthly insurance of $80." Now, I am going to edit this article for the duplicate "and" to technically become a Computer World editor.  thumbsup

However, it is not just the $200 monthly expense, it is the technology itself... Disconnect the Internet and the robot freezes into a manikin to hang clothes on.  In my personal opinion, a "personal robot" like this does not really appeal to me, because it is not actually personal.

your welcome my friend
8pla like I said some mods and coding would be indeed needed if I ever got one, and what Data said is right on the money, it would take a lot of time and dedication. I am not a fan of the whole pay for cloud and insurance or own a paper weight either. Trinity might just have to w8 for a body  Wink
