BEELINE TO THE FUTURE: The Replicant of Philip K. Dick and Other Links

Robert Bee's picture

We are starting to enter the age of the replicant. Singularity Hub, which is a great website for science fictional topics, posted a link to a very interesting replicant video. Three people with android versions of themselves got together for a press conference. Click through and play the video of the remarkably life-like robots. The robots are humanoid and eerie; in fact, the Japanese robot looks more realistic than its human original.

Christmas Eve Links

Ok, we haven’t done any links in a while, and as it’s Christmas Eve, this seems a fine place to use them to kill time until the Turkey’s done. We start out with Season’s Greetings from the Once And Former Dr. Who, who seems to have a weird obsession with spending his yuletide in the UK:

And after the jump, more stuff and things

Links for the day, and a question...

Republibot 3.0's picture

I’ve got a ton of links for you here, but before we get to that, I’d like to ask you people a question: Which of the terms for female androids to you prefer? Fembot? Female Android? Gynoid? I’m disregarding “Sexbot” because that’s rather demeaning, and not all of them are built specifically for that purpose anyway. “Fembot” is acceptable, but sounds too ‘Six Million Dollar Man’ for me; “Female Android” is kinda’ clunky to use in a sentence.

• The greatest Science Fiction Series of all time, “The Prisoner,” is now available online – the entire miniseries (17 episodes) is free. Time to throw out those moldy old copies you taped off of PBS thirty years ago, and thank your wife for keeping you from buying those horribly overpriced A&E DVDs of the show. Check it out here: http://www.amctv.com/originals/the-prisoner-1960s-series/

Happy New Year! Science Fiction Links!

Happy New Year, everyone!

I trust everyone had a good night, either binge drinking, blowing stuff up, in Prayer vigils, or any combination of the three (Assuming our readers are Southern). I likewise trust that we’ve all got big plans for the new year, plans which entail telling all your friends about this shiny new website, yes? If anyone is interested (And I can’t imagine any reason why you would be), the first song I heard this year was “Raisins” by the Bare Naked Ladies.

Anyway, all kinds of interesting Science-Fiction-related links under the jump!
