The human brain is the ultimate legacy system, with bodges, klonks, workarounds and kludges forcing it to work as a (mostly) cohesive system.
The project, a French initiative, run by the French centre for construction research (CSTB), is designed as telehealth for the elderly. Homes are tripped out with sensors and computer systems that monitor the health and behaviour of the individual, and alert a central depot should anything outside of normal routine occur.
This robot girl - gynoid - is used as a demonstration model by the film "AI: Artificial Intelligence", to show several aspects of their take on robot behaviour and construction. In this still, the gynoid's face is sliding apart for maintenance. This is not particularly realistic, for several reasons.
Whilst it is true that an administration vehicle in a heavily natural laws based VR would have to obey those physical laws or risk damage to the simulation wherever it traveled, it is also true that it can bend the rules to a degree. An invincible construction material is impossible within those laws, but a fantastic material that can absorb almost every blow, and can smash through a wall at 70mph, without taking a dent, is theoretically not impossible. That's good enough to avoid breaking the rules.
