A Japanese scientist from Ontario, Canada, developed a robot with feminine looks that can do housework chores and the inventor’s accounts. Le Trung, 33, who grew up partly in Japan, but is Vietnamese, named his creation Aiko.
The name of the robot comes from the Japanese, meaning “love child.” She has a shiny hair and a 32-23-33 figure. In addition, the inventor tried to fill his creation with a lot of information. Aiko is good at maths and her vocabulary includes 13,000 sentences in English and Japanese. The fembot represents a mix of silicon and AI technology.
It took Mr Trung about $18,500 to perfect his favorite machine. To get this sum of money, the scientist had to sell his car and take loans. Mr Trong spent all his life savings on Aiko.
It is worth mentioning that the Japanese inventor previously worked as a programmer and he almost never had time to find himself a real wife. He mentioned that Aiko was not built for sexual satisfaction, though she is touch-sensitive and responds to a person’s feelings of affection and when someone is hurt.
The scientists said he looks forward to make Aiko look, feel and act even more human, so the robot could be a perfect companion for a human.
“Like a real female she will react to being touched in certain ways. If you grab or squeeze too hard she will try to slap you,” said Mr Trung. He also mentioned that the robot has all the senses with the exception of smell. She is able to work 24 hours a day without holidays. The inventor dresses his creation in various outfits and drives together with her in the countryside. Mr Trung was a child genius. He made his first robot when he was only 8-years-old.
The scientist said that when people meet Aiko they show different reactions. “They either love or hate her,” he said. “Some people get angry and accuse me of playing God.” He said the women are most impressed by Aiko. Whenever a woman sees the robot, she tries to talk to her, apart from men, who most often want to touch Aiko, and if they do it incorrectly they get a slap.
For the next few years, the inventor hopes to perfect his creation, mainly to improve the robot’s software and abilities.
“I suffered a heart attack and I thought that one day I might need 24-hour care in the future. I may need to have Aiko look after me one day,” said Mr Trung.
