It comes to questioning when robots have thoughts of their own and could make their own decisions; that blurs out the whole "Robot Dating" thing.

Though i do agree society will push robot-romance away, but eventually like gay rights, it'll be a highly debatable question

My question is, how will we build one? Maybe we could have an elastic rubber skin manipulated by whisker-like rods around the mouth, or we could simply use an electroactive polymer for the skin with the necessary electrical charge supplied by electrically conductive metal plates underneath it. As for the skeletal structure of the face, it would probably look something like this.

Typical Robotic interior with "life like texture ;_;" external skin, hair as heat sink?
I hear a company called Hanson Robotics has some somewhat life-like robotic heads in development.

but i question: why make something to look-human-like when we just need human-like-responses to fool the brain that we're talking with a human? same idea as texting, talking on discussion boards and playing MMO's, we can't see the "person", but we (hopefully) know that the person i'm talking with is human

for androids, either make them 100% like human, from movement to facial hair to begin with, or don't bother at all

The ones who do aren't popularized by the media. It's also much harder, so people flock to the subjective, five-million-approaches problem of visual appearance.

hmmm, walking seems to be having improvement (ever since the 4-legged-dog one atleast)

(somewhat) fluid 2-legged walking
I say another 5~10 years for a decent "walking" one?

but yet again, as >>1928719 says, more funding for THE HEART & SOUL please!

Btw, once we do achieve 100% indistinguishable human like appearances, would any government party require all androids to have a certain "identification" such that you'll know it's an android and not human? like the ears in To Heart, Chobits and Halo Rings in Time of Eve?

It would be difficult for an android to successfully express the emotional output existing in the body language of an actor. The same can be said for some music but that doesnt mean a computer couldn't design a pattern of notes...

Guess what? They already made a real android based on the appearance of Holon, the android character from Real Drive.
Personally I think that the plastic hair was a bit much. A wig styled to look similar to her hair in the show would have been better.
There are two options to making robots, either make them photorealistic or make them stylized. Photorealism is much harder to do with robots because unless we get it just right, it will slide back into the uncanny valley. If we make them more stylized, that is we make them more like caricatures of humans (ie cartoonish) then they will not seem creepy no matter how stiff or unnatural their movements are.

I forgot to mention the design of the eyes. The eyes would contain a camera with a lens the size of a pea that would serve as the pupil. The eyeball will be wrapped in electronic paper and the iris around the pupil will be an image generated by this e-paper so it can shrink or expand allowing for more diverse anime-style expressions. The eyeball will then be encased in either transparent plastic or glass to give it a natural-looking sheen. It is also important to note that making the eyes or irises too big will cause it too fall right back into the uncanny valley. In GMod they have a few anime character models. A few models that someone made of Makoto Ito and Kotonoha Katsura from School Days ended up creeping me out in that the eyes and their irises took up a good portion of the face, while the models of Sekai Saionji and the models from xenoasiam's PASKAL pack ended up looking fine as their eyes and irises were a bit smaller.

Heck i won't mind if it was just a computer screen with a girl inside; better yet, with current AR tech development, we could eventually have a higher dimension of interaction with our waifus

main point: it should respond to me as if she was real; if making the android body was like making a cheesecake, building the "mind" will be the Manhattan project
