    Geeks Get Their Wish - Japanese Andrioid Chick Invented.

    Nerds around the world united today in celebration when the nation of Japan announced that the world's first AndrioidBabe had been invented! One D&D geek in Houston said, "The cherry on top of the ice cream is that she is a hot Japanese chick and not a chunky white girl from Pasadena with acne who smells like K-Mart." This could mean an economic downturn for makers of science fiction movies, videogames, and Linux software. With all the geeks that are expected to order their Hot Japanese Girlfriend 1.1 from Amazon.com this fall the aforementioned industries will surely suffer. Parents need to face up to the fact that they will never get their geek sons out of their rooms once Brown delivers.

    She's a babe, in a plastic, robotic sort of way.

    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Oh come on... the only time a woman’s hands touch the inventor is when they are slapping him. The rest was designed by looking at girly magazines. I am shocked that he was able to make her look that real.

    Don't worry the russian mafia will deal with this little problem to their mail brides buissness. I'm sure the russian mafia technicians are already implanting a homicidal psycotic b*tch chip into these androids...

    Why?

    Am I the only poor innocent sod who is wondering what possible function this flesh covered robot has? All of you dirty boys seem to think that it has one function on this earth, a la Fry's robotic Lucy Liu girlfriend in Futurama.

    By the by, its not an android. Arent they meant to have independent thought. Still, It'd be handy for washing the dishes.

    As an aside, is the fellow in the black beside the thing, the inventor or a man seriously deprived of human company. He looks as if he is about to swing her over his shoulder and jump out the window!

    The article says she doesn't have any sensors or motors in her lower body. So I guess they'll have to program her to fake it.

    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    The ends can justify the means.

    She doesn't need any sensors in its lower body to cook and wash the dishes for the computer geeks that'll buy it, does it? Although it does need motors in its legs to do something that the aforementioned do not do... tidying up the place and doing the laundry.

    That's just the prototype. Here's a schematic of the production model:

    It may be a cultural thing, but I sense that Japanese guys are not as turned on by 'topheaviness' as we 'mercins are.

    I assume that you have seen how 'interested' some guys are in otherwise real women whom have, well, a few 'fake' parts.

    Wow, once zmanPLAN gets his hands on this he'll never get his grass planted. Insert shamless reference to mowing lawns here.............

    If there hadn't been women we'd still be squatting in a cave eating raw meat, because we made civilization in order to impress our girlfriends.

    Well, the popular Geisha (sp?) women take extra steps to de-emphasize that when they go to work.

    OTOH, perhaps Anime is aimed at us 'mercans, or the younger crowd in Japan is being swayed by certain USA cultural influences.
