Got $225k going spare? Why not get yourself a robotic doppelganger? Kokoro, a Japanese robotics firm,
will create the sitting robot out of silicone with the same face, body shape, hair and eyes of the recipient. Their speech will be based on recordings of the owner’s voice.
The android’s facial expressions and upper body will be modeled on the movements of the buyer.
Unfortunately it won’t be able to walk so you couldn’t take your double with you to the shops, nor will it be sophisticated enough to sit in for you at the office.
But you can probably still have sex with it. And, really, isn’t that the point?
