Fembot stars in TV commercial
Remember Kokoro’s Actroid DER2 a lifelike Fembot which made its debut in Japan two years back. Its human like expressions did not go unnoticed as she makes her small screen debut with a 15-second commercial spot for a UV insect repellent/sunscreen spray. The android is available on rent for around $3500 for 5 days which turns out much cheaper than hiring a celebrity.
“The Woman Who Doesn’t Rust,” the 15-second commercial spot shows Actroid outdoors at a campground, where she recommends using Preshower because, as a female, her skin is important. After a few squirts of the spray, she cheerily adds, “Surprisingly, I don’t rust.”
