Robotic Girlfriend Answered

Japanese marketers are targeting "lonely adult men" with their newest development: a robotic girlfriend. Reminds me of this, a product from a few years back.

Eh, right now a cat would be more of a girlfriend, they at least are good portable heaters. Maybe better than a girlfriend as they clearly indicate when they want to be petted now.

What's so weird about a comic book rendition of a woman in a powered battle suit? Now if the helmet came off and there was a human face under there...

Nah, weird would be if it was programmed to talk to you with certain phrases. Like "Oh yes, work it baby!"

Now, if they can just scale her up and create a joint venture with Abyss Productions (Google 'RealDoll')... Excruciatingly high-maintenance, of course, but probably not much worse than the traditional approach, and a working Mute button would be worth the difference.
