Dec 30, 2009: Guess Who Came to Dinner.

Quote:
Inventor Le Trung spent Christmas Day with the most important woman in his life - his robot Aiko. The science genius enjoyed a festive dinner with his mum, dad and his £30,000 fembot which he designed and built by hand.
Le, 34, from Brampton, Ontario, Canada, even bought gifts for his dream girl, who is so lifelike she speaks fluent English and Japanese, helped cook the turkey and hang up decorations.
'Aiko is like any woman, she enjoys getting new clothes,' he said.'I loved buying them for her too.'
Ummm, moving right along, here's the happy couple...



Of course Mom & Dad didn't have a lot of choice because the happy couple live with them.

Quote:
Le has built up huge debts working on his fembot and is still trying to find a technology company to sponsor his research. But in the meantime he has had to move back in with his parents and they will all be spending the festive period and New Year together.
Oh, and she responds to his touch.

Quote:
Le has made his fembot as womanly as possible, in order to make a human-like companion. Aiko (Japanese for 'love-child'), whose age is 'in her early 20's', is 5ft tall and has a perfect 32, 23, 33 figure. She has real silicone skin and a real-hair wig made by a Japanese doll company. Her touch sensitive body knows the difference between being stroked gently or tickled. 'Like a real female she will react to being touched in certain ways,' said Le. 'If you grab or squeeze too hard she will try to slap you. She has all senses except for smell. 'But Aiko is always helpful and never complains. She is the perfect woman to have around at Christmas.
She has no choice, because he hasn't figured out how to make her walk in a human manner. At least that's his story, and he's sticking to it.

hipshot  Wednesday Dec 30 01:25 AM

I'm guessing he doesn't date much...



xoxoxoBruce  Wednesday Dec 30 03:15 AM

I don't think he has time for dating...

She has poor taste in clothes.

How much do you want to bet she has a...um, how shall I put this? VAGINA!



classicman  Wednesday Dec 30 08:58 AM

An nay...

( I gotta listen to that when I get home from work. Haven't heard that in . . . years)



Tawny  Wednesday Dec 30 10:09 AM

Pretty sure it doesn't have a vagina.

Le is still figuring out exactly what that is and what one would feel like.

Fracking frack fracker frack fracker.

Guess Who's Humming at Dinner?



xoxoxoBruce  Wednesday Dec 30 12:38 PM

Watching that video, I had the feeling she'd start drooling in a minute.



Tawny  Wednesday Dec 30 08:12 PM

Oh yeah, she's like "any woman."

1) Overly worried about her makeup getting smeared CHECK

2) Loves to have someone buy her new clothes CHECK

3) Knows the location of the restroom anywhere she is CHECK

4) Doesn't want to be touched CHECK

5) Frozen below the waist CHECK AND CHECK!

I will say, if you're going to be obsessive and hand build something, a fembot is more practical than aluminum airplane models.

The voice needs work though.


TheMercenary  Wednesday Dec 30 09:29 PM

Sounds like a lonely Dwellar looking for love in all the wrong places.

I saw a doco about 3 years ago on Real Dolls and the guys who have one or in some cases, many. It was heartbreaking. The doco filmed the owner's daily activities and had them talking about their "relationship" with their Real Doll, so it didn't try to cast any particular slant on them, but they mostly came across as men who had either no self-confidence with women (one English guy felt that women found him repulsive, so the Real Doll was how he got around that) or weird. Another one of the subjects who seemed relatively normal had a girlfriend during the making of the doco, but by the time it went to air, that had come to an end. The reasons weren't discussed, although it did show her "meeting the dolls" and seeming to accept their presence. I haven't seem Lars and the Real Girl, but am guessing that it's something like this, but funnier and without the pathos of real life.



casimendocina  Thursday Dec 31 01:39 AM

While we're on the topic, "This is not chick lit" has got a whole heap of great short stories including one about a real doll with a completely unexpected ending (and subject matter).

I think you'll find plenty of pathos represented in the film.

And humor. I like the part where the townspeople bought into it for Lars' sake and elected her for something. Not exactly in the clip below, but close.

SPOILER ALERT!

Oh cool, Aramis, Athos and D'Artagnan, too?


Shawnee123  Thursday Dec 31 10:56 AM

I can never remember the names of those drama masks, so I call them Pathos and Laughos.

Reminded me of this:

There once was a woman from Dimby
Who said "What use can my quim be?
The hole in the middle,
I know, is to diddle,
But, for what can the hair on the rim be?"


xoxoxoBruce  Saturday Jan 2 04:39 AM

The hair is like the drip-lip on a paint can.

Someone from the Cellar put this link on Facebook.

Quote:
Invetech has delivered what it calls the "world's first production model 3D bio-printer" to Organovo, developers of the proprietary NovoGen bioprinting technology. Organovo will in turn supply the devices to institutions investigating human tissue repair and organ replacement.
Keith Murphy, CEO of Organovo, based in San Diego, said the units represent a breakthrough because they provide for the first time a flexible technology platform for organizations working on many different types of tissue construction and organ replacement.
"Scientists and engineers can use the 3D bio printers to enable placing cells of almost any type into a desired pattern in 3D," Murphy said. "Researchers can place liver cells on a preformed scaffold, support kidney cells with a co-printed scaffold, or form adjacent layers of epithelial and stromal soft tissue that grow into a mature tooth. Ultimately the idea would be for surgeons to have tissue on demand for various uses, and the best way to do that is get a number of bio-printers into the hands of researchers and give them the ability to make three dimensional tissues on demand."
So with Mr. Trung's efforts and this baby, I figure we can have a Summer Glau type Terminator babe up and running in about 50 years.

Well, if we can build fembots, we can build digital dicks, clockwork cocks, peripheral penises....., and dongle dongles.


Shawnee123  Sunday Jan 3 11:21 AM

That sounds like Willy Wonka...or would it be Willy Wanka?



casimendocina  Sunday Jan 3 04:27 PM

Depends on the angle or the activity.
