Korea Unveils World's Second Android

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. :-)

Please visit the home page of Dr Patric Dixon, who claims to be one of Europe's leading futurisits. Make sure you follow their instructions and view his super state of the art Flash intro.... ha ha ha.
