Cherry 2007

Way back in the day there was a movie entitled Cherry 2000. It was a story about a man and his robotic wife.

The back story was that there were human-formed robots - that were designed for, well sex.

It's not that big of a thing, but oddly enough, most of the human-form robots that have been produced to this day are masculine in design. I'm not sure if that is something dealing with human nature, or that they are just scared of what men will do with a robot that moves, acts and looks feminine or what.

Well, one Tomotaka Takahashi decided that he's had enough male based robots, and decided to create the FT (Female-Type) robot. The purpose was to make a robot that looked and moved like a woman. He even went so far as to "study" fashion models to make the robots movements as graceful as possible.

Frankly, I'm not sure if I'm amused or disturbed.
