    "Although just 15 inches tall, the battery powered companion could prove to be the solution for lonely-hearted men everywhere, even kissing on command.

    "Ema" - standing for Eternal Maiden Actualization - is billed as petite, friendly and big-busted.

    Using her infra-red sensors the diminutive damsel puckers up for nearby human heads when switched on to what designers call her "love mode".
    But she can also sing, dance and - should the occasion require it - hand out business cards.

    While not quite up to the standard of the bikini-clad "fembots" featured in the first Austin Powers film, Ema does boast the ability to walk "like a lady".

    Made by Sega Toys, she is set to go on sale in September for around £85 (18,000 Yen).

    The company hopes to sell 10,000 of the robots, which were shown off at a demonstration in Tokyo on Monday, in the first year alone.

    "Strong, tough and battle-ready are some of the words often associated with robots, but we wanted to break that stereotype and provide a robot that's sweet and interactive," Sega Toys spokeswoman Minako Sakanoue said.

    "She's very lovable and though she's not a human, she can act like a real girlfriend."

    Japan is home to almost half the world's 800,000 industrial robots."

    I tried that with the wife. That didn't work too well. She now only has one nostril.

    See those coming in 5 or so years. This is just the beginning. In a few years we will have smaller parts covered in thin plastic or rubber with anime girl faces. Yes get your own working hand maid may.
