I think this technology might prove more lucrative if applied to the Korean sex industry: "experienced" Filipinos at the controls of Caucasian fem-bots.

The quote at the end seems a bit out of place. Wonder if that is a direct quote or not?

Surely someone didn't say that!


"Plus, they won't complain about health insurance, sick leave and severance package, or leave in three months for a better-paying job in Japan... all you need is a repair and upgrade every once in a while."

Re: Everyone Pack Your Bags! Robots Are Taking Your ESL Jobs!

An English speaking toy is still just a toy and Korean kids will get bored of it incredibly fast. 

You'd think for the money they spent they'd have come up with something a little more spectacular than the karaoke(sp?) speaker and mic robot I got in my xmas sock when I was 11years old.    

Yikes, why do they hate us so much? Just study the damn language and you might even learn it.

They have been laying down conditions for robots for years , it's called 6 or 8 classes straight and no natural light in the classroom.
