Video of new female robot.

Those crazy Japanese are at it again. This time they created a female robot to go with all the male(?) robots. Apparently what makes it female is that it has hips and knows how to shake its ass from side to side. The big question though is whether it can go to the kitchen and make me a goddamned sammich like I told it to an hour ago!

  • Fascinating video - the recent very realistic Korean robot woman raised a lot of comments in Slashdot about the uncanny valley - this video shows that you could make a robots which "felt" female, but avoided the uncanny valley problem by being very stylised. It's easy to imagine a robodoll that moved like this being given a stylised manga-like exterior to create a sort of cute/ adorable/ sexy humanoid robot...
