Japanese scientist unveils thinking humanoid robot

Okay, here's a robot from Japan that learns what it needs to know from Internet surfing on Google. I wonder if the builders have placed restrictions on where it goes and what it learns. I hope so or the robot apocalypse may be coming sooner than we think. Who knows what it is learning out there. Then again, the whole project may collapse if it gets caught up in Angry Birds.

The last line is a little spooky. Picking up moral values off the Internet? Exactly whose? It makes you think.
