They are real. They are created to serve humanity, they are basically slaves. They have the emotional capabilities of children yet intellectually, some can do incredible things. They also become a metaphor for the people we use and discard in our own society. Also the way we treat animals, sentient beings, is also a metaphor for these androids as well.
