Philip K Dick Android in the New York Times

June 30, 2012

The New York Times ran a full page feature article about the Philip K Dick android on June 24, 2012.

“How to Build an Android” is the honest title of an earnest book, the first by David F. Dufty, a senior research officer at the Australian Bureau of Statistics. It explains how a team of researchers at the University of Memphis collaborated in 2005 with an artist and robotics expert, David Hanson, to create what was then the most sophisticated android anywhere, a replica of the science-fiction writer Philip K. Dick.

The book about the android can be found here.
