Aiko Meets the Folks
Roboticist Le Trung brought his girlfriend Aiko home for the holidays. The Canadian claims that he bought gifts for his $50,000 sweetheart because "Aiko is like any woman, she enjoys getting new clothes." He claims that she helped cook the turkey and hang decorations, a nifty trick considering that although Aiko can speak 13,000 sentences, she cannot walk. Trung has been working on V2 and will combine them and name her Yumecom (which means 'dream robot' in Japanese.)
