Is this how the Cylons started?

Don’t think toys were cool in 1918? Trying finding an android today that will cook your dinner for a reasonable price! Practically equivalent to witchcraft in its time, this über-creepy little robot was surely the inspiration for every killer doll story since. Luckily, no working examples survive today, thanks to being remarkably fragile (or having been destroyed by angry mobs with torches and pitchforks).

    Sadly, the ad makes no mention of how the doll deals with the concepts of religion, society, and human feelings.
