She walks, talks, has an oily T-zone, and her name is Lisa. She's a robot who's been programmed to be the "Perfect Woman" — that is, she does the dishes and sweeps the floor without complaint. Lisa supposedly has vocal, tactile, and visual recognition capabilities that allow her to meet the needs (dinner? massage? grocery shopping?) of her partner. The only question is: Is Lisa a real robot or an online hoax run amok on the net? Some argue that Lisa is a human posing as a robot with intent to poke fun at the absurd (but very real) guys and dolls fetish. But the website for the project looks darn legit. It's a tough call, but I hope this is one spectacularly bad joke.
