"Sex and the single robot"

A rather disappointing example of hype over content in The Guardian this week; in this article, Kim Jong-Hwan claims that his new robot constitutes "the origin of an artificial species". As far as I can tell from the sparse detail in the article, it's nothing more than a robot with a genetic algorithm controller. The spurious reference to I, Robot doesn't help, either.
