Japan: I Love You, Miss Robot

Leave it to the Japanese to invent a robot girlfriend.

TOKYO - She is big-busted, petite, very friendly, and she runs on batteries.

A Japanese firm has produced a 15-inch tall robotic girlfriend that kisses on command, to go on sale in September for around $175, with a target market of lonely adult men.


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

EMA, which stands for Eternal Maiden Actualization, can also hand out business cards, sing and dance, with Sega hoping to sell 10,000 in the first year.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry. But tell me, am I the only one having an 80's flashback, courtesy of The Buggles?
