Very good concise explanation.
I believe that as the advancement in technology paces, the manufacture of androids are inevitable. However, I believe the "GRUNGE" re: R. Buckminster Fuller, mutinational corporate entities are motivated to bondage them into slavery for profit.
True it would allow maintenence in space and other hazardous places possible, it might also give rise to rebellion and insurrection.
The only thing a dictatorship can reliably produce is rebellion.
The mechanical components exist today, the processing power is yet to be realized. Maybe 20-50 years. In addition, a radical departure from the Von Nueman architecture is necessary.

I spend much time daydreaming about the possibilities.
