I found this article recently about a new female robot, the FT.

While I am very impressed with the fluid movement and the sleek design, and so glad a feminine robot entered the scene, I'm still a bit annoyed that the characteristics that were chosen to make a female robot are sexy and physical. What about intuition, social integration, creativity, intelligence, ambition, etc?

I wonder if, as robots emerge that are feminine, they will be a more 1950's pretty housemaid and have to go through their own robot women's rights movement just as humans did. Something to think about.
