Inventor Builds His Perfect Woman

From The Sun, 11 Dec 2008:

SHE is the perfect wife, with the body of a Page 3 pin-up and housekeeping skills that put TV's Kim and Aggie to shame.

Her name is Aiko, she can even read a map, and will never, ever, nag.

Sounds too good to be true, doesn't she fellas? And she is.

Aiko is actually a robot, a fantasy brought to life by inventor Le Trung.

Devoted Aiko --- "in her 20s" --- has a stunning 32-23-33 figure, pretty face and shiny hair.

She is always happy to clean the house for "husband" Le, help with his accounts or get him a drink.

Computer ace Le, 33, from Ontario, Canada, has spent two years and £14,000 building his dream girl.

He had planned to make an android to care for the elderly.

But his project "inspired by sci-fi robots like Star Wars's C3PO " strayed off-course.

[ ... ]

He said: "Aiko doesn't need holidays, food or rest, and will work almost 24 hours a day. She is the perfect woman."

Aiko sparks mixed reactions in public.

Le said: "Women usually try to talk to her. But men always want to touch her, and if they do it the wrong way she slaps them."

You can't beat the real thing. Sure, it's a step forward in terms of robotic programming, but this guy must be as sad as.

I beat Kiteman, I beat Kiteman, nyah nyah nyah!

And I got it off The Sun, too!
You're welcome to it!

...a few “tweaks” could turn her into ... Eeww!

"in her 20s" - yeh, riiiight!

And that video, all it reminds me of is the scene in Alien, where they interrogate the android's head...

:-) The title of the CNN piece (video, not text) was, "Fembot slaps down unwanted advances" or something similar, which didn't sound particularly bad. I found the Sun article above via Google, and it was just so... off ... that I knew it would trigger discussion.
Tis the Stepford Wives all over again, eh? 
 
And that, my young padawan, is where you fail...

Pride goeth before a fall. Or in this case, pride cometh at the end of Fall.
isn't the proper term: autumn ? :-)
