Inventor creates a pricey robo-date who doesn’t complain


If you are too shy to ask a girl out, then it’s time to awaken the geek inside you! Well, at least that’s what inventor Le Trung did for Christmas anyway. He made himself the perfect Christmas date, a fembot named Aiko for $48,000! What’s more bizarre is that he even bought her Christmas presents! The 34-year old Le, who hails from Brampton, Ontario, Canada, has created the mechanical mate to be so lifelike that she can speak in fluent English and Japanese, cook a turkey, and hang up decorations!

The name of the bot, Aiko, means a ‘love-child’ in Japanese. She’s designed to look in her early 20’s and has a 32-23-33 figure. Her artificial intelligence is so brilliantly developed that she can speak up to 13,000 different sentences in the two languages! She has silicon skin, and a wig created specially by a Japanese doll company. Her body is sensitive to touch and can sense whether she is being stroked gently or tickled. She also slaps when she is squeezed too tight or grabbed. The only glitch is that she doesn’t have smell sense and cannot walk just about yet.
