What’s the difference between an android and a cyborg?
I know that C3PO is an android, and that the Terminator is a cyborg; but what is the difference between them?
I’ve noticed that between science fiction worlds, robotic people (are robots a distinct category as well?) are either one or the other of these two kinds, but both do not exist in the same world.
Cyborgs seem more like american action movies with violence (universal soldier), where andoids have more typical science fiction connotations (battlestar galactica)
I think antoher difference is that a cyborg has a neural net processor, while an android has a positronic brain.
