Real Robot That Just Wanted To Be Loved, Becomes Stalker Robot!

Kenji, a third-generation humanoid, was programmed by Toshiba’s Akimu Robotic Research Institute to  emulate human emotions including  love.  Poor Kenji, then later  like most jealous exes goes a little bonkers and starts  stalking his love interest which happens to be an intern and will not let her leave her cubicle!This is for real folks not a scene from the anime show “Chobits” about persacom robots that are capable of human emotions and love as well.

The trouble all started when a young female intern began to spend several hours each day with Kenji, testing his systems and loading new software routines. When it came time to leave one evening, however, Kenji refused to let her out of his lab enclosure and used his bulky mechanical body to block her exit and hug her repeatedly. The intern was only able to escape after she had frantically phoned two senior staff members to come and temporarily de-activate Kenji.

Dr. Takahashi admits that they will more than likely have to decommission Kenji permanently, but he’s optimistic about one day succeeding where Kenji failed. “This is only a minor setback. I have full faith that we will one day live side by side with, and eventually love and be loved by, robots,” he said.

Poor little guy, he wanted to have his love interest around him at all times. I guess my “theory” of Irobot , A.I. movies actually coming to be has finally come true!  I feel bad for Kenji , if he has real emotions and real feelings, they basically are going to kill him off. Why don’t you make him a lady robot friend instead!

  1. “This is only a minor setback….”

    Minor? MINOR?! The robot stopped a human being from leaving the work environment by hugging her because it didn’t want her to leave him. That is far from being a minor setback.

  2. It was a hug though, who doesn’t love a hug or hump every now and then?

  3. what if the robot was more hostile it already broke a command by blocking the way and hugging her
