When Robots Deliver Electronic Kisses, is it Shocking?


Sega Toys has created a new fem humanoid bot in Japan. E.M.A., which stands for "Eternal, Maiden, Actualization," is 38cm tall. She can hand out business cards, sing, dance, walk "like a lady," and even kiss if someone gets close enough. E.M.A. is battery powered, can move her elbows, shoulders, knees, and waist, and has sensors for avoiding obstacles. The $175.00 bot will become available this September. We suspect if E.M.A. receives the same publicity for Sega as ASIMO does for Honda, we can expect her to come stateside.
