Robotics researcher Kim Jong-Hwan "has developed a series of artificial chromosomes that, he says, will allow robots to feel lusty, and could eventually lead to them reproducing. He says the software, which will be installed in a robot within the next three months, will give the machines the ability to feel, reason and desire." Now, didn't Data try this in the first Star Trek: Next Generation movie, leading to nothing but trouble? (Via Linkfilter.)
