The Japanese Create Robotic Girlfriend


A firm from Japan announced that it was able to create a robotic girlfriend that can kiss on command. The robot is 38 cm (15 inch) tall and its inventors dubbed it "Eternal Maiden Actualization" or shortly "EMA".

Producers stated that EMA will go on sale in September and its price will be $175. The robotic girlfriend is aimed to a particular target market, i.e. adult men.

"Strong, tough and battle-ready are some of the words often associated with robots, but we wanted to break that stereotype and provide a robot that's sweet and interactive," mentioned the spokeswoman for the maker Sega Toys.

"She's very lovable and though she's not a human, she can act like a real girlfriend," the spokeswoman added.

Besides kissing on command the robotic girlfriend can hand out business cards, sing and dance. Sega Toys looks forward to sell 10,000 EMAs during the first year.

It is worth appreciating because the idea was carved out from a real dept of insight, further research will make it more reliable to be with especially in the period of loneliness.

Yeah, I agree, robotic girlfriend is quite boring. Nothing can replace the real lips for kissing...
