It’s time to get all dolled up to meet the newest Tik-Tok dance sensation, who just so happens to also be a murderous robot doll of death! It’s M3gan! (pronounced Muh-three-gan of course) She’s a Childs favourite toy, a Parent’s best friend and Isaac Azimov’s worst nightmare… For this review maybe bring a map so we can navigate our way out of this really uncanny valley.
In this podcast Dion and Quinny are standing at a distance because Jill suddenly looks and sounds a little more like a killer doll every second…
M3GAN is a marvel of artificial intelligence, a lifelike doll that’s programmed to be a child’s greatest companion and a parent’s greatest ally. Designed by Gemma, a brilliant roboticist, M3GAN can listen, watch and learn as it plays the role of friend and teacher, playmate and protector. When Gemma becomes the unexpected caretaker of her 8-year-old niece, she decides to give the girl an M3GAN prototype, a decision that leads to unimaginable consequences.
