Sophia the robot is now a fashion model

The eerily human-like robot has ditched her bald-headed android guise in favor of something more glamorous.
It seems as though Sophia, a realistic human-like robot designed to redefine how humanity interacts with machines, has been turning up just about everywhere over the last few months.

Developed by Texas-based firm Hanson Robotics, the life-like creation has not only made numerous TV appearances but is also the first robot ever to be granted citizenship of a country.

Now she has turned up yet again - this time on the front cover of British fashion magazine Stylist donning a wig, makeup and a flowing purple dress.

Could this be a glimpse of what a society of the future - one in which humanoid robots are commonplace - might actually be like ?


It remains to be seen where she will turn up next.

Just imagine a world where the MGTOW movement becomes transcendent and a majority of guys start cohabiting with sexy Bots... I think it's entirely possible and an awful statement on the state of male/female relations in the 21st century. The Feminists must be quite pleased.

If she was British she'd be dubbed The Thinking Man's Robot Crumpet. (plain looking... but talented)

With the way that political correctness is heading, we'll all be mindless robots, so it might be hard to make a distinction...

Your "friend" might be interested in the very latest model, straight from the production line...

But does she cook and clean? If so, I'm sold (sorry if you're reading this, hunny). I can come home to a clean house and if she starts ranting just pop out the AA batteries...not a bad idea...
