The Japanese are always at the forefront with cutting-edge technology, and with the creation of a life-like Japanese robot girlfriend, loneliness will soon be a thing of the past.

The robot really is fascinating, due in part not just to how real it looks but to its ability to make a variety of facial expressions and even speak.

The video below shows the robot blinking, moving its head and mouth, and apparently responding to a variety of questions.

No other info is available, but one can only wonder just how much something like this will cost, and whether or not it will be made available to the public in the future.

It’s only a matter of time until it develops sentience and begins to take over the world.
