Japan's Smooch Capable Robot

Japan is a place of many firsts. Unfortunately not all of them are very logical. Like Sega's E.M.A. which stands for Eternal, Maiden, Actualization (WTF?) - the worlds first robotic girlfriend. Standing at 38 centimeters (14.9 inches) the shapely automaton can sing, give smooches and shake it's plastic booty.

Sega's Minaka Osaka:
"She (E.M.A.) is very lovable and though she is not a human she can act like a real girlfriend."

A real girlfriend you say? Correct me if I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure she is missing a vital input interface. Having in mind this product will be targeted at males over 20's I wonder - doesn't Japan get Playboy?
