Robot sex: Japanese robot makers will change our lives in more ways than one

I’ve lived in Japan a long enough time to know that once they start something, they don’t stop until they get it right down to the last detail. Nothing illustrates that more than Toshiba’s latest concept automatica dubbed “Chihira Aico,” introduced at this week’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

In fact, lifelike robots are a big deal in Nippon, where you can find them doing everything from selling phones to stunt doubling for pop-idols.

But I know exactly where this tech is headed. The sex industry. Gone will be the days of otaku and geeks totally missing out on Valentine’s Day for instance. One good aspect of this is that pervy crimes like upskirt instagramming and booty-grabbing on the train will decline. And even married guys won’t technically be having affairs with an inanimate objects. (What their wives think is a different story, methinks.) Also, androids aren’t judgemental. They aren’t programmed to be, so everyone can let their crazy fantasies take flight.

I’m so sure that this technology will be popular all over the world, I’m just waiting on Prime Minister Abe to make it part of a new “Abe-nomics 2.0” economics package. But the downside is that Japan’s population will drop even faster now.
