To Speak! Perchance…

It is perfectly appropriate that the Philip K. Dick Android Head speaks in “SimpleText.” Or actually doesn’t, but a reasonable facsimile thereof. Which is also perfectly appropriate.

The head is not the original Philip K. Dick Android Head, which went missing in 2006, but a replica by Hanson Robotics, doing their best since 2003 to mind the uncanny gap.

The original Philip K. Dick died from complications of a stroke in 1982.
