Kokoro, a Sanrio Group company specializing in the design and
manufacture of robots, unveiled its new Actroid DER2 feminine guide
robot at Sanrio headquarters in Tokyo on October 4.
Actroid DER2 is an upgraded version of Kokoro’s previous fembot,
Actroid DER, who has made quite a name for herself by providing
services at a number of events, including the 2005 World Expo.
Compared to the previous model, DER2 has thinner arms and a wider
repertoire of expressions.
The smoothness of her movement has also been improved, making it
now even more likely for the uninitiated to confuse her with an actual
Actroid’s limbs, torso and facial expressions are controlled by a system
of actuators powered by pneumatic pressure. Once programmed,
she is able to choreograph her motions and gestures with her voice.

I'd be extremely cool to have a robot as somekind of sidekick that you can share your life with, but human-robot sex is insane!
