Best Answer

Andros-Man, Roid-like or similar- an artificial human-like creature as distinct from a robot which has metallic skin and is often only vaguely human-like like those in Star Wars or Lost In Space. Androids could (blend in) with humans and if used by ( who is to say they are not) by an intelligence agency-well they could have serious possibilities. androids, like UFOs are pretty much an ( Above Eyes Only) topic, at least officially, Science Fiction novels- some really good have been done on the theme. By the way the word is derived from two Greek words, andros and the roid suffix.

It could also mean Google's mobile operating system, which is named Android.
