Chinese Dude Marries A Custom Sex Robot

A lonely and determined 31-year-old Chinese synthetic intelligence whiz has created a customized humanoid intercourse robotic and married it.

A former worker of Chinese multinational telecoms agency Huawei, Zheng left the corporate in 2014; final 12 months, he joined the Internet village of Dream Town—12 granaries reworked into an incubation heart.

The unhappy case engineer named his Stepford Wife Yingying and wed her in a “simple ceremony” on Friday, the South China Morning Post reported, citing the Qianjiang Evening News. Guests to the marriage ceremony included Zheng’s (weeping) mom and bemused buddies.

A lobotomized “woman,” Yingying can establish Chinese characters and pictures, and say a couple of phrases, resembling ‘yes.’

For the nuptials, she was wearing a wise black go well with and white strappy heels, along with her head coated by a crimson scarf—an previous Chinese marriage ceremony ritual.

Zheng reportedly intends to improve his 66-pound robotic “wife” with the power to stroll and assist with family chores. Because that’s what married girls do.

The union, after all, might be not completely authorized.

The Marriage Law of the People’s Republic of China, adopted in 1980, states proper off the bat that “a marriage system based on the free choice of partners … shall be applied.” It’s arduous to consider the insentient Yingying, who can’t even communicate full sentences, consented to the coupling.

It doesn’t assist Zheng’s case that “no marriage may be contracted before … the woman [has reached] 20 years of age”: Yingying was “born” in late 2016, making her lower than 12 months previous, and he a possible pedophile.

Zheng isn’t the one unhappy case to meet his life targets by constructing a private intercourse robotic. Last 12 months, Hong Kong-based Ricky Ma spent 18 months and greater than $50,00zero creating robo-Scarlett Johansson. According to Netease, the robotic look-alike can transfer its legs and arms, type detailed facial expressions, and reply to verbal instructions.
