Are you THAT gullible?

C'mon guys, it's a mannequin! The photos showing components are not in "Valerie". The robotic hand photo is a dead givaway. It's as wide as the male hand in the photo with it and nearly twice as thick. There is no way that hand is in "Valerie". Did you notice, in all the photos, she never once changes her body, arm, leg or hand position? and, NONE of the photos show her doing what she is said to be capable of. The robot face photos aren't even the same face as the one on "Valerie". Do you honestly believe that a robot as complex as "Valerie" claims to be, would only be $59k? It's either a gag or a ripoff. :shock: #### Dialtone ##### New Member Not sure about you all, but if I could get 4 suckers to send me 1/2 of$59,000 I might be tempted to skip and run with the cash. I know where Denton Texas is and I am quite sure they do not have a major Android production center there, nor is there likely to be one anytime soon.
Smells like either a scam or hoax.

I am surprised anyone thinks this guy is for real.

I would have thought everyone would realize this is a hoax, its pretty obvious. What amazes me is the fact that this website is a well-known and RESPECTED android/robotics website. This guy is planning on running with the money if anyone is gullible enough to fall for it. Apparently two people already have, although I doubt the sincerity of this claim.

Similar to Honda/Fraction of the budget

Look - All you fools who think you know everything, should stop pontificating until you've spoken with the creator (or seen the unit). As I mentioned in my previous post. I was extremely skeptical. UNTIL I ARRANGED FOR A MEETING. Needless to say the bot's not perfect. But it is infact a functioning robot. Similar in a lot of ways to what Honda has been doing. The incredible thing is that apparently, this was achieved with a fraction of the budget.

[ LOOK, I HAVE NO CONNECTION TO THIS PROJECT. BUT< AFTER SEEING IT MYSELF I"D HATE TO SEE THIS DISMISSED AS A HOAX ]

I think anyone who has done any programming would be simply dumbstruck by the programming language as shown on the web site. There is only one word which I could use to describe it and that word would have to be, "unbelievable" :lol:

I would take that as an insult, except that it's coming from a person whose other thread is:

Assembly Language?! F#\$^K that! How do I learn this???

elliottearls, listen, there's no way for us to believe that this is real. For all we know, you could be working for the creator or even be the creator himself. You could even just be someone that desided to defend this android because YOU think it's real. I don't know. I'm not saying I don't believe you, but let's all just wait 'till Christmas, and see if this thing starts showing up on TV and eBay. If it does, it will surely be "The next big thing." :wink:
