Coming up, android partner!


The other day, an Uber driver gave me some information about android partner will be selling soon. Japanese people produced the android that he told me too in the chat.

They can program the android in whatever the ways to fit the owner’s need as a spouse and $40,000 to get it.

This android can be programed to fit whatever the owner’s needs as a spouse so there shouldn’t be arguments, she/he would say yes to the owner every time, maybe can be designed little twisted if the owner wants.

I heard that this product can provide all the services as a human spouse can do so sex is included. Sex could be designed in the way the owner wants too, of course.

Despite the price of $40,000, preorder was sold out so you have to wait to get it if you want.

My driver was in his 50s with two divorces that he told me and he certainly wanted the android.

He asked me if I wanted to get the android and my answer was “no”.

I was kidding saying that I would get a dog if I become lonely in the future. Then he told me that the android can provide sex so it is better than dogs. I said that I would still stick to the dog…

We all expected this kind of advanced technology came true prior to this day in novels and movies.

Robots serve humans in science fiction stories and often times the ending is dramatic such as depressive ones.

Androids somehow get jealous of humans and start killing humans, or the owner start killing the androids because they can’t satisfied with the machine after all.

I predict the outcome of this story as a psychologist and I say, humans wouldn’t be satisfied or happy with the android spouse.

I am not sure if the machine start feeling like a human or not. However they are not humans for sure so humans must naturally feel like communicating with un-human.

It is like sex toy that looks like a human sometimes but it is always substitute of humans in the sense. It can’t be better than humans anyway.

I remember a story about a doll sold looking exactly like a human. The closer we look, the more the doll looks like a human that I heard.

For human minds, the closer the doll resembles human, the more humans feel strange in our nature that I read.

I heard that some awkwardness is there when we see counterfeit bills too. Maybe because of our 6th sense we feel strange with counterfeits. I wonder if android got 6th sense and unlikely.

We must observe the android carefully and can’t stop watching them at first. Probably communicating them or even having sex with them would take some courage for us to do.

They must look like a human though they are not a human so they could be violent all of sudden with malfunction too.

In humans, violent people are blended such as rapists or serial killers so odds may not be so different from each other in robots and humans after all.

The reasons why a lot of people want this android partner is about control issue, of course.

Everybody has the issue that they want to make anything in certain ways that they wish.

I watched on TV long time ago in Japan that children were getting snappier and snappier. A psychologist was commenting on TV about it.
