Sanrio Fembot Loves Hello Kitty


A couple of people left links to a story about a new “fembot” produced by Kokoro (a Sanrio owned company) that has the robot wearing a I Love Hello Kitty shirt. Then the other day I received an email with a couple of links to videos of the fembot:

Not too surprising, my reaction to this and my wife’s reaction weren’t quite the same:

wife: “Even robots want the heart of Hello Kitty.”

The only positive I can say is that at least they didn’t make an actual Hello Kitty robot, but my Hello Kitty Hell intuition tells me that something like that is bound to show up sometime in the future…

    Dude. Japan could be 30% populated with bowing, kitty-loving, so-desu-ne-ing fembots *right now* and nobody would know the difference.

    Food for thought, huh?
