    Sounds too good to be true. First thing on my mind is, What is the catch? What kind of horrible weapon can be made? Bio-genetic weapon?


    If someone grows a brain with a microprocessor inside and sticks it in a robot; I think that would qualify, somewhat, as a life form. If they could make an artificial sperm and an artificial egg then give birth to a living thing; that would damn sure qualify as an artificial life form in my book.


    Now, I'm just freaking myself out. lol
