We Can Build You

The PKD-A Android, also known as ‘RoboPhil’ and built by Hanson Robotics, converges numerous machine perception and AI technologies to mimic Philip K. Dick’s conversation style and facial movements. RoboPhil also had his own living environment known as ‘Club VALIS’, and has since attended several conventions, including Comic-Con in July 2005 at which he appeared as a panelist. ‘RoboPhil’ went missing in January 2006: he was packed for a flight to California, was last seen being loaded onto the plane, and has still not been recovered.

Everyone who's interested in buying used or new heavy construction equipment, check out this site komatpillar.com There are lots of equipment advertised: Caterpillar, Volvo, bulldozer, mobile excavator, farming machineries, and many more. Just contact the supplier and have transactions directly with the equipment's owner.
