Q.bo Daniel Meets Q.bo Jane
Copora's Q.bo Daniel 123 has certainly been busy and can now identify himself in a mirror via his flashing nose. Because he is equipped with the Festival speech synthesizer and Julius recognition program, he can relate to people.

As robots "approach consciousness" we are wondering if someday they be clever enough to perform experiments with humans.

It would be nice if there really was some type of AI where their conversation to each other wasn't so pre-programmed (I'm guessing that it's very much so programmed that way and not in any way intuitive via complex behavioral & speech based AI algorithms where words are actually chosen and made up into sentences instead of a sentence just chosen from a list based on what was said). Well, someday, I'm sure. For now, probably nothing that fancy and complex in toys.
