Philip K Dick is missing.
Not the American science fiction writer whose novels spawned hit films such as Blade Runner and Total Recall — he died more than 20 years ago — but a state-of-the-art robot named after the author.
The quirky android, was lost in early January while en route to California by commercial airliner.

I listened to the piece about Dick from the BBC. They had the robot talking in Dick’s words and I thought that was so weirdly cool.
I wonder if someone’s holed up in a dark room with the robot as it speaks to them about god and the universe.
