    Imagine if Jibo and Google teamed up.
    Would we get GlaDOS? I know he's a
    Wheatley now, but combine personality AND
    brains, and that'd be something revolutionary.

                              Even if he is useless, the fact that he knows and looks at people if he sees them, just makes me want to buy it.

                                                          I really hope the company is bought and his software is completely updated

                                                          The engineers really did well, but I feel the software just wasn’t worked on as much as it should, they wanted it to be pretty, but nothing else
