How Much is That Android in the Window?

by Conner Flynn

If you find yourself at the Takashimaya department store in Shinjuku, Tokyo, you will have a special treat this Valentines Day. There, you will find the Geminoid-F android just chilling out in the store window, seemingly waiting for a friend.

The idea is to use her as a next gen mannequin. Geminoid-F is capable of basic emotions and behaviors that it uses to create expressions and actions based on it’s environment. You can expect her to smile, nod and move about a bit in her chair, probably fooling some passers-by into thinking she’s a real woman.

She might even yawn as you pass by. One thing she won’t do (or so I hope) is break the glass with her fist and pick you up by the neck, while signaling other android mannequins that it is time for the invasion. That would be bad.

    This is how the machines take over. Make androids, both female and male to entice the humans to bring them home. Quickly, almost every human alive ends up building relationships with the androids and forgets to breed. Give it a 100 years,(machines have lots of patience) and there won’t be a red blooded person left standing. Spooky.

    Lonely?: Make the best of yourself and find a dating service or actually meet someone in a public setting. Stay away from androids.

    How Twilight Zonish can you get?
