Philip K. Dick Robot Goes Missing

Philip K Dick is missing.

Not the American science fiction writer whose novels spawned hit films such as Blade Runner and Total Recall — he died more than 20 years ago — but a state-of-the-art robot named after the author.

The quirky android, was lost in early January while en route to California by commercial airliner.

  1. I listened to the piece about Dick from the BBC. They had the robot talking in Dick’s words and I thought that was so weirdly cool.

    I wonder if someone’s holed up in a dark room with the robot as it speaks to them about god and the universe.

  2. this is profoundly dickian, all things considered

  3. When it runs for president I will certainly vote for it.
