Meet Aiko, one man’s perfect robo-woman.

Source: The Sun (UK).

It started with a more helpful idea. Toronto inventor Le Trung wanted to build a robot to help the elderly. Then his hormones kicked in, and Aiko became his love toy.

“Aiko is what happens when science meets beauty.”

And she is a beauty. A fembot that Hajime Sorayama could have envisioned, but Le made her real… and almost perfect. Aiko has a couple of flaws: She can’t walk… yet (Le is looking for a sponsor to help with that part.) and sex, which he hasn’t tried yet:

“Her software could be redesigned to simulate her having an orgasm.”


The ultimate Stepford Wife… Not. Aiko was originally designed for housework so she can handle simple cleaning tasks easily enough, but being a robot…

“Aiko doesn’t need holidays, food or rest, and will work almost 24 hours a day. She is the perfect woman.”

Before you consider her a push-over, better watch the video and pay attention around the one-minute mark. Le created his fembot with face recognition and sensors so she can react to touches. Touch her the wrong way or cause her pain and she’ll bitch-slap you for your efforts.


It’s now official, cyberpunked living is HERE. If this blog doesn’t convince you, then you may want to google the nets for a fembot announce earlier this year named E.M.A., The kissing robot, a.k.a. “Femisapien” for US robosexuals.

Amazing, truly amazing. Imagine where we’ll be in 10-15 years.

This is actually pretty ancient news. There is more sophisticated work going on at Hanson Robotics and the MIT Personal Robots Group. Also, a much better example of “cyberpunked living” would have been the Wakamaru domestic robot that has been commercially available for over two years now.

If they put these robots in america they might end up plagued with viruses that cause them to go into a “BUY ME THINGS” logic loop.

I think that “cyberpunked living”, is right around the corner. But i would disagree that it is here, much of the technology is available but is not mainstream enough

Is it just me that thinks that asian/japanese faces seem easier to replicate in a lifelike fashion on a robot? Or is it just that most of humanoid robot happen to have japanese facial features?

Making one which does something useful…. like doing first aid, telling me the news… what things I need to remember, playing some songs or commenting on fashion would be sightly useful. Still I would love an Aibo.. a dog that BLOGS.. i mean what better than that.
