A 42-year-old unmarried (probably) product and graphic designer from Hong Hong named Ricky Ma spent a year-and-a-half of his life and $50,000 of his money creating this “female robot prototype” that bears more than a passing resemblance to actress Scarlett Johansson — which I’m 100% sure she would definitely be flattered by and not totally creeped out. Ma built the robot, which he calls “Mark 1,” as a hobby and used 3-D printing technology to make the robot’s skeleton and many of the body parts.
Among the robots functions are moving arms, legs, and moving facial expressions, in addition to the ability to respond to verbal commands spoken into a microphone. Sooo… A Furby, then? (A sexy, sexy Furby.) Ma says of his inspiration in creating the robot:
Ricky said: “When I was a child, I liked robots. Why? Because I liked watching animation. All children loved it. There were Transformers, cartoons about robots fighting each other and games about robots.
“After I grew up, I wanted to make one. But during this process, a lot of people would say things like, ‘Are you stupid? This takes a lot of money. Do you even know how to do it? It’s really hard’.”
There’s no way of knowing one way or the other if the robot is anatomically correct, but translation, basically: “Sex. Sex, sex, sex. Sex. Sexy robot sex.”
