I was visiting Stanford University today., to shop in their bookstore for academic philosophy books, walking through the exceedingly upscale Stanford Shopping Center next door to the campus and wasn't paying much attention, and I almost walked into a robot! It was a cone-shaped thing, about 5 feet high, with a rounded point on top and with wheels on the bottom. (It reminded me of a Dalek.) It stopped when I entered its path and it was definitely aware of me. I expected it to scream "Exterminate! Exterminate!" and try to disintegrate me with a ray, but it remained silent. This is why I love Silicon Valley! Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
