* DeFictionalization: So very many of the possibilities and problems of "lover robots" predicted in this film are [[http://www.breitbart.com/tech/2017/07/31/worlds-first-sex-robot-brothel-talks-expand/ already beginning to be realized in real life]]. Gigolo Joe's claim that "Once you've had a lover robot, you will never want a ''real'' man again" is clearly no idle boast, as [[http://www.express.co.uk/news/world/779841/Sex-robot-brothel-Lumidolls-Barcelona-prostitutes-complain-police human prostitutes have already been trying to drive out sex doll brothels]] on the grounds that [[JobStealingRobot they're unfair competition]].

* SavedFromDevelopmentHell: Kubrick read the story and hired the author to write a treatment in the early 1970s, invited Spielberg to work with him in 1985, and only decided to take the project off after Spielberg's '93 productions (''Film/SchindlersList'' made Kubrick give up on [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wartime_Lies a similar adaptation]], and ''Film/JurassicPark'' convinced him that CGI could bring the project to life). Then he wanted to start the project after ''Film/EyesWideShut'', [[AuthorExistenceFailure but his eventual death]] in 1999 lead Spielberg to fully take over.
* TechnologyMarchesOn: Dr. Know is a public database that can answer any question you have. In effect, it's a less convenient version of Google that you have to pay for.
