Whatever’s on my mind really.

A peek at illustration inspiring celebrity sexiness, quirky news stories from inherently pornified pop culture, tips, sketchbook and work in progress, reviews and other things of interest; whatever’s on my mind really—which more fool you if you ever take that seriously.

Latest Picks is a sort of mini-blog for daily thoughts and picks. Longer articles, stories & sketches are found in the full-size blog, where indeed Latest Picks are moved when updates to a story make it too large.

Note: Both Latest Picks and Blog are to be retired at the end of September, although both will remain available indefinitely as an archived part of the site. No further updates to past stories will be made.

42-year-old product and graphic designer—and modern day Pygmalion—Mr Ma dreamed of designing a humanoid since he was little after becoming obsessed with robots and animation—and presumably Scarlett Johansson at some point—and has spent more than $50,000 (£34,000) and a year and a half creating the female robot prototype, Mark 1, and with noble social intentions, according to Mark 1:

“I think robotics is a new manufacturing and it can help people to do some high risk work and go to high mountain and deep ocean to realise our world adventure.”

Indeed, and you can hump “her” too, robotically or otherwise. But such is the Westworld way of coming things, as The Mirror’s “Romance and robots” related stories in the article suggest.

Indeed, we’ve covered the implications of for work, society and sex before (see related stories below) and if RealDoll are only an AI—or at least a motor—skip and jump from, when they do, doubtless their’s will come with some novel customisation options.
