This is very Friday worthy news:

“Aiko is a 32-kilogram female android that Trung began building in August of last year. She is just under five feet tall, has brown eyes that can distinguish 300 faces per second and speaks 13,000 English and Japanese phrases. Her skin is made of silicone and her insides are made of an expensive collection of wires, motors and various sensors. In total, Trung has spent more than $20,000 developing Aiko, maxing out three credit cards in the process. The silicone alone cost $6,000 — but Trung insists it was a necessary expense.”

 

I really liked this part of the article:

“On his wish list? Teaching Aiko to dust, to clean toilets and to clean his ears with a Q-tip.”
