The PKD Android

I found out about the Philip K. Dick android yesterday. It reclines on a sofa in a specially-created 70s-style apartment. Its memory has been packed with every word the author ever spoke in interview, allowing the droid to mimic his habit of giving 5-minute-long responses to questions. People are reported to respond on an emotional level to its frubber features - one visitor ended up holding its hand!
