If you don't think the world's weird, you're not paying attention.


Dr. Korby, Humabot

As far as I know, there is no existing term that can be used to distinguish an android that is created completely anew from an android that is created by transferring a human mind (not brain) into a robot body.

Therefore, I propose to call a robot that is the result of the transference of a human mind into a robot body a Humabot, as in “human robot.”

Dr. Korby, in the Star Trek episode, “What are Little Girls Made Of?,” is a Humabot. Humabots are also featured in Star Man.
