The sequel is that she will probably outlive him. She makes an estimate of his lifespan plus a reasonable amount-- and when she's past that point, her promise is fulfilled and she starts taking independent action. She probably isn't the only "defective" model which slipped through, either.

Look at her eyes, the movement, compared to the other models - there doesn't appear to be some non-thinking mode she can lock into. The *sequel* is she does her best to be a good little android, but her new owners figure out she's more than she appears. What happens next...is complicated. Bad luck - reported and disassembled. Good luck - educated and freed under a fake identity. Somewhere in between is a big long stretch, well the US has a whole slave history to account for the problem of property that thinks. Phyllis Wheatley is one of the more interesting examples to make it into the history books.

The sequel really depends on where somebody wants to go.
Maybe she's put in a situation where her choice is to reveal she's more than she seems, or let somebody die. (My "lazy writing" department suggests rewriting Taken
with Kara taking the Liam Neeson part.)
Maybe she gets educated and freed - and then she falls in love. (Not sure where this outline goes - for all I know, this could be a really weird rewrite of Jane Eyre.)
Maybe the company finds out she got away, and decides to "recall" her. (In my head, this ends up as a weird mix of E. T.
and The Fugitive
, as the kids work to keep their robot nanny, and she has to reveal more and more of her independent abilities in the process of a cross-country chase.)
Or, if you want a romantic comedy, she's sent to the door to turn away the blind date because her owner is sick, and ends up taking her owner's place on the date. Hilarity ensues as she tries to keep the succeeding dates and keep anybody from discovering the switch.

Wow. Now that is well done!

That was a very impressive use of the PS3 technology.

I so wish they'd finish this. Very awesome demo.

In the Readl World (tm), she'd be sold for a lot more. In the John Grisham world, she'd be the key to some vast cover-up.

So many feels. Brings a tear to my eye.

Oh, absolutely. But I couldn't remember anything about it except the general storyline, and that included when I'd posted it... and I really, really didn't want to get lost in my archives. You know how that is -- it's like trying to organize a crate of comic books: one part organizing, nine parts, "Ooooh, yeah, right, that was cool." As it was, I found it accidentally.Edited at 2013-02-05 02:32 pm (UTC)

Ah. That effect. True, even after focusing on the "Animation" tag, it's still easy to get lost in all that.

Perhaps you should establish an "AI" tag for stuff like this. If I were reposting it, that's certainly what I'd use.
What it makes me think of is Renee Alper's song "On The Inside": I only meant to prove that I'm an equal,
To show no one could see through my disguise,
And win for all my kind the right of freedom,
Which my race is currently denied.

well worth the re-watch! Thanks!

Have you watched the making-of?

Somehow I get the sense that the factory computers use GlaDOS.

In this factory, GlaDOS use the them!

Dolly back to reveal there is one true human left, attempting desperately to recreate the human race in the only medium left to him. This was a test, to see if Kara could not only think her own thoughts, but feel emotions. She passed. So did the others in the cages. Outside - well, that will become their problem.
