salimfadhley Technically this is a Gynoid (232 comments)

Android comes from the greek root andro- meaning man. The word "androgynous" comes from the gree words for both Man and Woman and means having both male and female qualities.

Since this machine is female in form, it should not be called an android, but a gynoid. :-)
