A New Way For Lonely Men to Up Their Creepiness Factor

Those cuh-razy inventors over in Japan have outdone themselves yet again—this time with a robot designed for guys who just can't get a date. A Japanese firm, Sega Toys, created the 15-inch robotic girlfriend that kisses on command, hands out business cards, sings and dances.

So I know you're all wondering how this tough little mankiller, called "EMA" (Eternal Maiden Actualization), works. How good of you to ask! You can chalk her "love mode" up to some infrared sensors and battery power.

"She's very lovable and though she's not a human, she can act like a real girlfriend," Minako Sakanoue, a spokeswoman for Sega Toys, told Reuters. Rrrrriiiight.

Sega hopes to sell 10,000 in the first year. Want to be at the front of the checkout line? The sweet young thing goes on sale in September and can be yours for only $175.
