I have a couple of nephews, one of whom is a little 8-year-old science nerd, and so I’ve been looking around for some kind of build-it or do-it-yourself kits. I love robots, The Dude loves robots, so we’ve been thinking a robot kit would be super cool. While searching for such a kit, I found the WowWee RoboSapien, which is not anything I’m interested in, except that it’s supposed to be “humanoid,” and thus can “dance, burp, do a karate chop, give a high five” and so forth. Okay. It apparently also has a girlfriend.
Yep. You know where this is going.
Say hello to (or maybe giggle and bat your eyes at) Femisapien. She doesn’t belch, but she does dance, sing (back-up, of course!) and blow kisses. But that’s not all!
Femisapien speaks her own form of Femmish and responds to user gestures, touch, and sounds with her own. … Tilt her head to access her three main function modes: Attentive Mode with interactive wandering, seeing and hearing functions, Responsive Mode for walking and scripted actions, and Learning Mode where she remembers exactly how you move her. … FemiSapien is a real 21st century robot entertaining, dynamic, and classy. A perfect, interactive friend and the evolutionary successor to the RoboSapien line.
(Can you see the O NO U DINT face I’m making?)
FEMMISH? TILT HER HEAD? ATTENTIVE and RESPONSIVE MODES? CLASSY?
No burps and farts for this perfect, evolved rob0-lady! Also, check out her sexy, pneumatic bod! Just the thing for the grade-school set, amirite? Too bad I don’t have a niece to give this to, so she’ll know that how a perfectly programmed fem-bot is supposed to look and act. So efficient, rather than having to brainwash her over years and years.
Female toy engineers, please come to my rescue, before I’m reduced to buying my nephew alphabet blocks for lack of offensive options.
