He Puts the Lotion on the Skin...

In the category of "Things that Should Make Your Skin Crawl" we have Le Trung, the Canadian software engineer who lives with his parents and made himself an animatronic love doll, Aiko. (In Japanese, "Ai" means "Love" and "Ko" means "child.")

Buffalo Bill... er, I mean, Le Trung even claims on his website:

"Yes, Aiko has sensors in her body including her private parts, and yes even down
there. AND yes Aiko is still a virgin..."
Umm... are you creeped out yet? In Dahmer's, err... damn, there I go again. In Le Trung's defense, he does add:

"AND NO I do not sleep with her."
Uh, huh... and Bill Clinton "did not have sex with that woman... not once."

Still not creeped out? Look how he dresses her:




Look, you'll find no bigger fan of technology and robots than me. I'm all about the future. I'm looking forward to the day when, As Jonathan Coulton says, "the things that make me weak and strange get engineered away." That said, I'm also a HUGE fan of women made of skin. I'm not delusional enough to think that Lovebots aren't in mankind's very near future, but I'm also not depraved enough to applaud their appearance in creepy Canadians bedrooms.

Anyone who STILL disagrees with me, watch the clip below and pay particular attention to 00:40 seconds or so when Le Trung cops a feel on his blowbot:

If the embedded video doesn't show up, you can watch on CNN.com.

Animatronic coolness aside, if this dude doesn't have a girl in a pit, he will soon.
