SHIRI: the Japanese robot butt that responds to touch
A team of researchers from the Hentai Tokyo University of Electro-Communications have recently revealed their latest achievement in sensory robotics: SHIRI, the robotic butt. Yes, you’ve heard it right. Are you by any chance in the mood to see a grown man gently caress a plump silicon posterior? Fantastic, you’ve come to right place!
In this clip, graduate student Nobuhiro Takahashi, who incidentally was also involved in the making of first robotic tongue for online kissing, shows us how the machine is capable of responding to several different types of stimulation. This thing looks like something out of a David Cronengberg movie, I'm horrified yet I can't look away.
