‘I Miss you. No, I miss you, I can’t live without you! Promise me you’ll call! Every day!!’
If these fervent declarations of psychotica aren’t enough for you, perhaps you should consider having your loved one stuffed to make you conversations even more intense. For a mere $2000 odd dollars, you can get a disturbingly large doll that looks identical to your loved one. Yes, this robot has a built in camera, a VOIP phone and will read you RSS feeds out to you when you sync it with your computer.
The idea is that this plush looking bot can replace your beloved, as they can be designed to freakily mimic their features. The doll-bot has a 500MHz processor include, so it’s not just a pretty face, and you can use it for Skype convo’s when you’re feeling lonely.However the idea of using this seems akin to those people who buy blow up sex dolls, which makes me very uncomfortable.. What do you think?[via Geekologie]
