Jiajia is an artificial intelligence expert who designs and creates robots in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province. Failing to find a girlfriend for himself, he finally thought to take matter into his own hands.  He created the “female robot” at the end of last year, named her YingYing and wed her last Friday in the presence of his family and friends. Both the bot bride and groom were draped in black with the robot having a red cloth over her head.

Now if you are wondering how much close can a robot come to being the ideal wife, a lot supposedly. Yingying can only speak certain Chinese phrases and identify texts and images. No extra nagging for you there. In addition, Jiajia is also planning to enable walking options for Yingying so that she could help out with the household chores.

Certainly a weird incident but one that has been slowly gaining mass popularity. A lot of males are looking for such silicon spouse options. Last year, one Japanese man, Senji Nakajima, told the media he bought one such doll to provide physical comfort as he works far away from his wife. The issue of limited ladies is certainly affecting China the most ever since the policy of the one child, was introduced that was amplified with the bias against the girl child. Data released by the National Bureau of Statistics on January 20 showed that China’s male population reached more than 708 million at the end of 2016, while the number of females was more than 675 million.
