Virtual Girlfriends

This is one of those that’s potentially also available in America, but it’s so new that you might not have realized that a news story broke about a virtual girlfriend you can get as a house assistant. Think something like Siri, Alexa or Cortana, only if they actually loved you. Her name is Azuma Hikari, and she’ll send you texts when you’re away, watch TV with you, wake you up gently in the morning, and keep your house in order by turning off the lights and gas when you’re out. Basically, she’s there to be a personal assistant, but she has touches that also make her a girlfriend.
