X rated robot

Researchers in robotics at the University of Reading have created an X rated robot. Really it's just a fairly innocuous robot head that can follow people around the room and record reactions (sight, sound, infrared, etc). The Ethics department decided that it was too scary and anyone under 18 is required to have their guardian's signed consent to view it, however I think it's quite cute, especially the blue eyes. I wonder what would happen to the movie rating system if research Ethics departments took over??!
