dreaming of frameworks

Also thinking--human is the optimum shape for general purpose robots because that's what we've built our world for, and that's a de facto standard. But what if there were a smaller standard defined and accepted by a consortium? Then a secondary market builds in providing extensions/skeletons/etc to the smaller form. "Human" just being another suit that this general-purpose robot can control. At some level just re-pluggable brains.

I'd imagine the skeletons might have secondary brains (reflex centers) for their particular skills... (walking, etc).

The future becomes very different very quickly. No?

Well, most things have been done. But that doesn't mean they can't be done again, differently. It's reminding me I've got a "the final era of man" sort of piece I need to explore more (when we're all energy and the only thing to do is eke out the last energy we can from the universe before heat death... and live lives to the fullest until then).

Clarion--I think it would be a good thing for me, but I can't really imagine taking the time off for it.
