When nature fails… build your own… waifu


Some old news, that is new news to me because I don’t check my email enough. Canadian chemist graduate, Le Trung, dissatisfied with what mother nature and society has produced, has fashioned robotic waifu for himself. Aiko as she is affectionately called, was named after the Japanese characters for love and child. (love child… lol?) Le Trung estimates Aiko can be mass-produced for $15,000 to $17,000 USD. It brings new meaning to mail-order brides…

This isn’t exactly new news, as the project has being developed for over a year now. Her latest upgrades have enabled her to identify objects placed before her, sense and signal pain or annoyance. If you squeeze her cheeks or other parts of her anatomy she will tell you, “That hurts or stop touching me.” Just what us guys need, pay $17,000 for waifu that complains.  =P She also recognises faces and speaks 13,000 sentences, and Le said: “Her software could be redesigned to simulate her having an orgasm.” Look forward to it as part of Arte Tokio’s next line of releases.

Below are pictures of Aiko as well as a video of her in action.



I have to say, it’s surprising to hear this coming out of Canada. When I heard the words “robot” and “wife” in the one sentence, my mind immediately  jumps to Japan, but I guess it’s a good thing, not all perverted lulz originate from Japan. Le Trung doesn’t sound like a Japanese name, and hopefully he isn’t because that would just be the ultimate irony.

Thanks to qiqi1021 for bring this to my attention.

  1. Le Trung is Vietnamese.

  2. Kairu Ishimaru Says:

    HAHA- OH WOW. I dont know what to say.

  3. I find it ironic that even though he’s Vietnamese he chose to program Aiko to speak Japanese. Perhaps it’s indeed a nod to the so-called “perverted lulz” you speak of.

    Quote Le: “Women usually try to talk to her. But men always want to touch her, and if they do it the wrong way she slaps them.” <– LOL

    Interesting notes from the website: http://www.projectaiko.com/

    “For those of you who are asking the same questions.

    Yes, Aiko has silicone in her entire body.

    Yes, Aiko has sensors in her body including her prviate parts, and yes even down there.

    AND yes Aiko is still a virgin, AND NO I do not sleep with her.”

  4. I find it ironic that even though he’s Vietnamese he chose to program Aiko to speak Japanese.

    It’s clearly a marketing consideration, as he knows Japan is the only place he’ll be able to sell it her.

    AND yes Aiko is still a virgin

    So he says.

  5. wow talk about a wapanese loser.

  6. I like Aiko…..

  7. We’re actually working to build these, if anyone’s interested you should come help us out (or lurk).
