In some more bizarre news, I just read this article about some robot that is going to target lonely men in the world. Created by Sega toys in Japan, the â€œEMAâ€, Eternal Maiden Actualization, is some kind of small robotic toy that will retail for about $175 and will basically act like oneâ€™s girlfriend of sort. For example, it can kiss on demand as well as sing and hand out business cards. Here is a video about it:
Is this for real? I was really interested in the analysis on this as the report kind of implied that the makers believed there is a demand for something like this and would target men over 20. This is one of those things where I just have to sit there and wonder why if you were really in that state of mind that you just donâ€™t go out into the real world and find a mate.
Now watch me get all these e-mails from supporters on how this will save people money from having to pay for say dating sites or is a better value than spending money on like going to the movies. 😛
