DEAR GOD when I saw this it creeped me out probably more than anything else I’ve found online. I may actually have nightmares from this toy, f’real y’all.

In Japan they’ve developed a robot that will look JUST like you. Well, a weird muppet version of you at least. It’s like a possessed my buddy that looks like you, like Chucky mixed with that guy from that one x-files episode that could eat people and take on their appearance. “My Buddy” always freaked me out anyways, my oldest Nephew had one when he was a kid and that thing messed with me, bad.

It’s got a web cam, microphone, and speaker built in so it will learn your voice and read you the news and weather using it. And not just that, I can see some major fetish value here. How many net pervert pigs out there would TOTALLY get off on a doll of themselves watching them diddle and broadcast to all their little net pig friends? Juts like the vibrating Harry Potter witch’s broom that moms were stealing from their kids, everything will eventually get used for some strange, wholly unconventional and impure purpose.

I see FAIL written all over this. I can totally see the You-bot evolving to some kind of intelligence and becoming jealous of its owner and taking them out with a kitchen knife in the middle of the night. Those things can go to hell and die for all I care.

    It would be better if they were to make giant robot dolls, then we could be carried around by giant versions of ourselves. Call me lazy.

    For what it’s worth, Ralf (him indoors) did a play a few years ago where they had puppets of themselves – so I do have a mini Ralf at home, as well as the life sized ones. Please note that Mini Ralf has not been abused in any way.
