There is a film documentation about computer & robot technologyhttp://www.plugandpray-film.de/en/
The english trailerhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X1-2e484u1A
and the german trailerhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F_9Y5059j0o
And that's why I did post it here.
Did you watch the german trailer?
No? You can not speak german?
Yeah, that's a problem, no, not really -. You have seen the english one, allright, what do you notice?
Yes, the german movie trailer is much more fun to watch than this styled english usual alldays movie trailer, with modern piano music.
You could think these are two different movies. And more difficult, what will it be? A serious documentation? A funny view of computerism?
Want all germans humoristic documentations?
Will the english audience get the feeling to watch something intelligent styled and smooth?

Plug & Pray - Of Computers and other Human Beings
Since antiquity, humankind has dreamed of creating intelligent machines. The invention of the computer and the breathtaking pace of technological progress appear to be bringing the realisation of this dream within our grasp. Scientists and engineers across the world, like Raymond Kurzweil and Hiroshi Ishiguro, are working on the development of intelligent robots, which are poised to become an integral part of all areas of human life. Robots are to do the housework, look after the children, care for the elderly... Yet, the ultimate vision goes even further, envisioning a merger of man and machine that will throw off the biological shackles of evolution and finally make eternal life a reality. The film delves into a world in which computer technology, robotics, biology, neuroscience, and developmental psychology merge. We visit the world’s leading experts in their laboratories in Japan, the USA, Italy and Germany. One of their very own, a pioneer of computer development and artificial intelligence, former MIT professor Joseph Weizenbaum, has become one of the harshest critics of those visions of technological omnipotence. He sees the widespread belief that nature can be entirely grasped by means of science and thus is computable as a disastrous aberration of human thinking. Weizenbaum, who created ELIZA, the world’s first speech recognition programme and mother of all chatbots, witnessed how, within only a few decades, computers have been entrusted with all kinds of tasks, even decision-making. Wary of unstinting devotion to progress, he keeps asking: Do we need all this? And what will it mean to be human in a world run by machines?
Allright, you will never see this documentation, no chance.
It's like every good and interesting stuff, you will never even know about it.
That's why I tell you this here, just for fun, or the hope that it open your ears and eyes if there is something similar, maybe far away hidden on an unknown satellite channel.
