That's no "ivory"! The software that runs machines is so close to "metal" that 
it can't deal with people. When in direct contact with human it 100% depends on 
human intelligence. If anything it is more like cast iron - revolutionary 
material in its best days, but terribly brittle, you know.    (03)
