What's the difference? None of us would live long enough to see this happen. Instead of making a robot, why not figure out how to correct the errors that cause us to break down? It would be a lot easier to custom-design the DNA of the perfect partner and develop a quick growing environment along with mental programming. No big deal, it won't happen.

Because there is an issue with abortion, let alone making custom made partners.

I just read this 2005 story where Japanese Scientist have unveiled a Female Robot that looks and feels realistic. She even appears to breath. Looks like they got a jump start on taking 50 years to produce one. If this is todays (2005) technology then what should we see in 10, 20 and 30 years from now.

Hey, whats would the difference be between a robot and a woman's joy toy?

Except for one factor "they can pack the smaller one away in their suitcase and travel by plane with it, without paying for another seat.
LMAO !!!!!

Well, I would not mind a custom robot that would look exactly like Michelle Pfeiffer at the age of 25, just to babysit me when my beautiful wife is not home (I just won't tell my wife, just in case).

You know who the first people to marry robots would be? Those guys who go on "sex tours" to places like Cambodia.

By the end of the movie he had realized that no robot would be as human and as exciting as the pilot (she was a babe), so he ended up with her instead of the the robot.
Please don't ask me why the hell I remember this film...trying to forget after all these years...
