    I liked WALL-E.

    I saw it in the cinema & on the TV.

    Very thought provoking.

    A robot with a heart - lol.

    A clever space ship captain who learned about humanity & life.

    Now if you combine WALL-E with the Amazon Echo & the Elli.Q then you are definitely into an interesting future.

    I forgot to add: "Think carefully about the possible unintended consequences of your actions. Altering nature is not always a good idea."

    Elli.Q has discovered television, and would rather talk to the TV, than chat with its/her/his owner.
