You know, back when I was in high school, some 20 years ago, I saw a documentary about Japanese men who are in love with anime characters. So really, this isn't new, it's just that the technology has gotten better.
Since the "What the Heck Thread" is locked i had post this link here. No wonder the Japanese population is shrinking, over work and stress with no time for meaningful relationship. I must admit that silicon doll in the photo does look cute and she is very liberal, she doesn't cross her legs while seated
And I agree with you, I imagine that in 20 years, those dolls would be able to move and converse. From there, it's just a short leap to full fledged androids!
Actually...Only funny when it's not your country LOL... LOLOL
I have to be honest, she's not as cute as the Japanese doll.
