DISCUSSION

These are androids, not cyborgs.

Android = Fully synthetic being (but not necessarily fully intelligent) designed to resemble and act like a human.

Cyborg = A mixed bag of biological and synthetic; carrying with it organic pieces and non-organic. Ie tomorrow I developed a true working synthetic heart that worked just as a biological one and could be implanted into humans; any human that got one would be a cyborg.

Robot = A synthetic being (but not necessarily fully intelligent) that does not resemble or act like a human.
