You are not going to believe this. Remember Westworld? Well, the Japanese are staffing up for Eastworld.
They have developed a female android, named Repliee Q1, with flexible latex skin and a number of sensors and motors to allow her to turn and react in a human-like manner. Miss Qyu Wun can flutter her eyelids and move her hands like a human. She even appears to breathe. She has 31 actuators in her upper body, powered by a nearby air compressor, programmed to allow her to move like a human. Here is her photo. She looks, well, feminine. Man, will the wags go nuts over this story and photo.
When last seen, Larry Flynt was opening his checkbook with quivering hands.
