    I find this just a tad too creepy. Look at how he dresses her.

    She's not nearly as creepy looking as he is.

    Nice. A tad creepy, but if she or it, remember his favorite drink that's awesome.

    Creepiness and question of misogyny aside, she sounds actually quite technologically sophisticated, if saying so does not earn me a slapping.

    Whoa. Can he do a male version? :)

    But seriously, that is crazy. How messed up do you have to be to do something like this?

    Well, I guess this is what people will do if they're desperate enough.

    So why the "nice" figure and delicate features if she's not a sexual partner?

    Reminds me of this story more than a little.

    This will be the norm in a few decades when the technology catches up.

    Cool.

    Just another step towards human like robots.

    What we've seen in the movies is slowly becoming a reality, good or bad.

    Maybe if you took a bath once in a while, you wouldn't need your tweakable friend...

    Reminded me of this, very creepy, the fact that he managed to make her all by himself however is nothing short of a miracle, the technology behind her must be mental...

    Men will go obsolete long before women. Unless someone develops an artificial womb.

    It won't be long before a proceedure using the genetic material from 2 eggs can be made into a viable embryo is common, at which point, men are no longer necessary to keep the species around. We probably won't go anywhere, beer doesn't drink itself and someone needs to belch loudly and watch football every sunday, but men will be biologically redundant.

    wow - this came across as totally sexist.

    why dress her up like Chi from 'Chobits' if she's not for a tweakable purpose? he's just a little too obsessed w/ her.

    but then again, we may be just a few models away from Gigolo Joe (AI).

    i'll wait for the Roy Batty model :D

    But then who will open jars, reach things on the top shelf, and find car keys???

    Oh, that's right. Aiko or the Ken-doll version thereof can do it. Yep, we're toast.
