We ‚ô• Tachikoma

In between the endless miserable business of flat-hunting we’ve been working our way through the excellent Ghost In the Shell TV series ‘Stand Alone Complex’.

One of the interesting aspects of the series is how the AIs seem more human than the humans. As a viewer you end up caring more about the fate of the software than the people - despite them having a shape that is completely non-human (and non-mammalian) we felt more empathy with the Tachikoma than the human characters.

Forget flying cars; I want The Future to provide me with a spider-like robotic battle robot or two.
