The Android is Missing

February 16, 2006

The Philip K Dick android is missing.
The android is a lifelike humanoid robot built by Hanson Robotics in collaboration with the University of Memphis and the FedEx Institute of Technology (based on the University of Memphis campus). It featured a completely interactive, autonomous AI so that it could converse with anybody, and answer questions on the fly in real time.
The android was being flown to San Fransisco, where it was then going to travel to Mountain View, California, for a special presentation at Google headquarters. Unfortunately it was left in an overhead locker during a transfer in Denver.
The android was briefly recovered in Orange County and put on a flight to San Fransisco, but never arrived at the destination.
