Robot Girlfriend Hits Stores

How about a Robot Mom for the rest of us?


Sega just released a "robotic girlfriend" in Japan named EMA--short for Eternal Maiden Actualization. She kisses, sings, dances, and passes out business cards (seriously). Lonely guys can purchase this steel sweetie for just $175--a bargain! Sega says its goal is to crack the traditional robot's cold-and-tough rep with a model that's "sweet and interactive."

With the release of the Robot Girlfriend and then WALL-E coming out next week, it's a good time to be a robot, right? Robots are suddenly hot. But why should guys have all the fun? If a 15-inch Robot Girlfriend can satisfy men, how about a Robot Mom to help us out?

Just imagine...

Scheduling is conflict-free: Can't keep track of swim lessons, PTA meetings, and school plays? Robots don't need lists, planners or post-its. All pertinent information is stored inside her computerized brain.

Kids are satisfied at breakfast: One whines for pancakes, the other wants cereal, the other only eats PB&J. No problem. Robots have time and energy to whip up whatever, and clean up when she's finished, so you don't have to.

Bedtime is suddenly a breeze: No more getting up again to retrieve a glass of water, read one more story, or check for the Boogeyman under the bed. Robots don't have a patience off-switch.

Grocery shopping, carpool duty, and completing that report for your boss ... not your problem: All accomplished at warp speed, with no stress ... Mani/pedi, anyone?

Your relationship is recharged: She can pick up his dirty socks, listen to him gripe about his day, and find his cell phone that's inexplicably lurking at the bottom of the hamper. This way, you have more energy for the fun stuff ... date nights, snuggling, and bonding.

What could a Robot Mom do for you?
