According to the article, Trung has invented a female robot he named Aiko (Japanese for “love child”). Aiko sounds pretty amazing. She It can speak 13,000 sentences in both English and Japanese, has a highly-developed artificial intelligence and is very human-like. Clearly, Trung is a very smart guy and his invention has a lot of potential. But then he has to go and ruin it by treating her like…well, just read this excerpt from the article:
“The science genius enjoyed a festive dinner with his mum, dad and his £30,000 fembot which he designed and built by hand.
Le, 34, from Brampton, Ontario, Canada, even bought gifts for his dream girl, who is so lifelike she speaks fluent English and Japanese, helped cook the turkey and hang up decorations.
‘Aiko is like any woman, she enjoys getting new clothes,’ he said.
‘I loved buying them for her too.’”
“Le has made his fembot as womanly as possible, in order to make a human-like companion.
Aiko, whose age is ‘in her early 20′s’, is 5ft tall and has a perfect 32, 23, 33 figure.
She has real silicone skin and a real-hair wig made by a Japanese doll company. Her touch sensitive body knows the difference between being stroked gently or tickled.
‘Like a real female she will react to being touched in certain ways,’said Le.
‘If you grab or squeeze too hard she will try to slap you. She has all senses except for smell.
‘But Aiko is always helpful and never complains. She is the perfect woman to have around at Christmas.’”
Repeat after me, Le: Aiko is not real! She’s a friggin’ robot that you built. And if you’re going to buy clothes for her, make sure they don’t look like they were picked out by Stevie Wonder.
