Two related links at the end of that article:

Robot hired as a temp worker
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/15857476/

Robot learns to play hide and seek...
(another one of those lovable features of the terminator...and reps as well)
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/15831851/

Oh, and this is silly but it caught my attention that one of the people working in these robots goes by the last name "Turkle" and other one's last name is "Roy". :wink:
