A Robot which can conduct wedding ceremonies

newsstoryoftheday — May 17, 2010 — Robot conducts wedding for Tokyo couple. The robot is located at a restaurant where it conducts wedding ceremonies. It is called the "I-Fairy" and stands about 4 feet tall.

It has flashing eyes to confirm its message to humans during the ceremonies. It wears a wreath of flowers and has a tinny voice and waves its arms as the bride and groom come together in harmony. In case you were wondering, it is a "she" and is bolted to a chair.

It was the first time a marriage had been led by one of these human-like creatures. It was made manufacturer Kokoro Co., a subsidiary of Sanrio Co., and also makes giant dinosaurs for exhibitions and lifelike android models that can smile and laugh.
