Russian robots are set to prove they are no strangers to human emotions. The first-ever marriage between a loving couple of robotic creatures is scheduled to take place in Moscow.
There will be no banquet in honor of Apitcompych and Fiolenta – but they will be wearing wedding gowns.
What they cannot live without is energy, though. Now, instead of exchanging wedding rings, the newly-weds will have their flash cards plugged into each other’s sockets.
In fact, the bridegroom, Apitcompych, has a real man’s job, working as an administrator at a computer equipment store. He sorts the goods, communicates with the customers by e-mail and Skype, and finds friends on social networks.
The robot actually met his fiancée on Facebook. When Cupid shot a love arrow for Apitcompych and Fiolenta, the couple immediately decided to put an official stamp on their relationship. Many wonder, whether they are in such a hurry because Fiolenta is expecting.
Whatever the reason, the forthcoming robotic wedding is meant to serve as a role model for young people who wait too long to settle down and start families, often opting for ‘virtual love’ on the Internet.
