Robot that can fall in love may end woes of lonely hearts!

By Abdul Nisar

London, Nov 20 (ANI): Robots could one day completely replace the need to have a boyfriend or girlfriend. Well, that's what the latest invention suggests.

A robot that can fall in love with its owner could put an end to millions of lonely hearts across the globe.

It has special sensors that react to human touch to show when it is happy - or in love.

The robot has been invented by German designer Stefan Ulrich and can wrap around its owner and even give them a cuddle.

The robot looks like a massive pillow and could be straight out of the latest sci-fi blockbuster - or even comedy.

"The products of the future will, in effect, be alive," the Sun quoted Ulrich as saying.

"People already bury themselves in possessions and shield themselves from real life with technology.

"So if robots and objects can fulfil all their emotional needs as well, why do they need other humans?"

The robot uses state-of-the-art research in artificial muscle technology and has micro-sensors under its skin.

They react to pressure, skin temperature and colour to produce a response like a human reaction. (ANI)
