Actriod DER2 Fembot


Kokoro just brought out a brand-new robot, the Actroid DER2, who loves Hello Kitty and has improved movement patterns over the original Actroid DER. She’s presently the guide-bot at the Sanrio headquarters in Tokyo. She has more accurate-looking limbs and a wider range of facial expressions making it now even more likely for the uninitiated to confuse her with an actual human being. But don’t just take their word for it; you can rent her for £400 per day plus extra fees for technical support, delivery and choreography changes. So if you fall in love with her, I hope you have a good day job. [GT]
