Engineer ‘Marries’ Robot He Built And It’s Totally Not Creepy At All

Building a relationship with the perfect partner takes time. Sometimes, you have to build the partner first.

A 31-year-old artificial intelligence engineer in Hangzhou, China, claims to have married a female robot he created from scratch.

Zheng Jiajia built the “fembot” late last year and named her “Yingying.” He “married” the lucky piece of electronics on Friday in an informal ceremony, according to the South China Morning Post.

Yingying isn’t just a trophy-bot for Zheng: He says she can identify Chinese characters and images and even say a few simple words, according to the paper.

But she can only communicate with him, which is a little strange since Zheng has made his bot bride the official spokesperson of his company, a startup called Brain of Things, according to Mashable.

That’s a decision that might strike some as “nep-bot-tism.” 

The marriage was a traditional ― though not legally binding ― Chinese ceremony. As is the custom, Yingying wore a black dress and had a red scarf draped over her head.

Although marrying a robot is obviously a great publicity stunt for a company specializing in AI technology, Zheng may have decided to get romantic with a robot just to get his parents off his back.

According to Shanghaiist, a friend who attended the wedding told the Qianjiang Evening News that Zheng’s family constantly pestered him to settle down.

The friend also told the paper that Zheng’s heart was broken by a college sweetheart, so he swore off relationships entirely. However, Zheng told the paper the friend was just joking. 

All relationships must grow and change ― even ones with robots that are likely PR stunts.

Zheng told local publications that he plans to upgrade Yingying so she can talk, move around and even do housework.

If the couple ever wants to double date, they can hook up with Barcelona-based engineer Sergi Santos, who has invented a robot sex doll named “Samantha” that has to be “romanced” before it’s in the mood for love.

Woody Allen Is Creepy AF About His Marriage To Soon-Yi In New Interview

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter published on Wednesday, Woody Allen has yet again waxed paternal about his marriage to wife (and former sort-of-adopted-daughter) Soon-Yi Previn. Spoiler alert: the entire interview is all kinds of creepy and condescending. 

A bit of background: In 1992, Allen’s relationship with actress and activist Mia Farrow crumbled under the revelation that he had had an affair with her 21-year-old adopted daughter Soon-Yi Previn. Previn and Allen were married in 1997. More recently, in February of 2014, his adoptive daughter Dylan Farrow published a letter accusing Allen of sexually assaulting her when she was a child. The original accusations of this abuse in 1993 were “part of a sensational story about the celebrity split between Allen and his girlfriend, Mia Farrow,” according to letter’s introduction by Nicholas Kristof. 

Allen continued to make movies throughout both scandals, and his career and reputation have remained largely unscathed. In his most recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, in anticipation of the premiere of his new film, “Cafe Society,” Allen was asked about how his wife has changed him. Perhaps unsurprisingly, he was quick to outline the ways in which he has changed her: 

Oh, well, one of the great experiences of my life has been my wife. She had a very, very difficult upbringing in Korea: She was an orphan on the streets, living out of trash cans and starving as a 6-year-old. And she was picked up and put in an orphanage. And so I’ve been able to really make her life better. I provided her with enormous opportunities, and she has sparked to them. She’s educated herself and has tons of friends and children and got a college degree and went to graduate school, and she has traveled all over with me now. She’s very sophisticated and has been to all the great capitals of Europe. She has just become a different person. So the contributions I’ve made to her life have given me more pleasure than all my films. 

Ignoring the fact that it was actually Mia Farrow who had adopted Soon-Yi with her then-husband André Previn — Allen did not heroically rescue her from Seoul’s trash cans as he implies — the interview serves as a reminder of the eerie role that Allen has played in the lives of his female family members. 

The Hollywood Reporter’s Stephen Galloway asked Allen twice more how Previn had changed him, before Allen finally answered: “Changed me? I don’t know if you could say she changed me… I might be the same person I was when I was 20.”

Creepy, Texas (Young Adult Urban Fantasy)

Creepy, Texas (Young Adult Urban Fantasy)


Dusty Jacobs is the typical young adult. He loves the latest online video game sensation, Monster Hunters, in which humans have to fight off the paranormal monster hordes, doesn’t like school, and fights with his older sister, Amy, on a daily basis. Amy is a fan of metal music and Goth clothing and likes to think of herself as the ultimate non-conformist. His parents, Roger and Michelle Jacobs, are equally as typical, Michelle a researcher for a bio-tech company who always insists the kids take their ‘special’ vitamins that she designed. His father is a simple accountant. Other than occasionally not seeing himself in a mirror, Dusty thinks that all is well with his world. What Dusty doesn’t know, however, is that his family is being watched by a secret organization called the Monster Hunters Association, and that their upcoming move from urban New York to Texas isn’t because his mother is retiring. It’s because they are running from the MHA. When Dusty and Amy are confronted at school by Rykes, a diabolical agent of the MHA and just barely escape his custody, the family flees the city, leaving the children’s friends and everything they’ve ever known behind. So begins their odyssey across the country where, with every turn, the mystery deepens. Along the way Dusty begins to suspect the deeper implications. He discovers that not only are monsters – vampires, werwolves, ghosts, and tools – are real, but world is in danger from them. Dusty has to find out why the Monster Hunters Association is chasing them. But more importantly, he has to discover just who he is.

‘American Horror Story: Freakshow’ Gets A Delightfully Creepy First Teaser

“American Horror Story: Coven” may have raked 17 nominations in the upcoming Emmys, but all eyes are on “American Horror Story: Freakshow” now, with its creepy new teaser released Sunday, July 13.

In the 20-second clip, the seemingly innocuous — but truly ominous — music we’ve come to expect from the series sounds, as white wings part on a small stage to reveal a sad blond woman. The camera then shifts to her rear, unveiling a terrifying clown character operating her bloody lever. Freakshow, indeed!

The Ryan Murphy-helmed Season 4 “will be set around a carnival sideshow in early-1950s Florida,” according to Rolling Stone. “Jessica Lange will return for her fourth season on the show to play a German ex-pat who runs the sideshow.”

“It was always a concept that Jessica and I talked about really early on,” Murphy told Entertainment Weekly in May, adding: “I thought it was going to be light but it’s turning out to be quite terrifyingly dark, which it feels much more like the ‘Asylum’ season. But look — if you have a character named the Clown Killer, it’s going to be dark.”

Umm … that explains the clown??

Sarah Paulson will also be making her return to the FX anthology and she even revealed her character via Twitter in June: a two-headed woman named Bette and Dot.

We’re already having nightmares.

Before The Internet, These Creepy 19th-Century ‘GIFs’ Mesmerized The Masses

GIFs are widely regarded as an Internet-age phenomenon. So, it might surprise you that more than 150 years before you saw your first “Mean Girls” GIF, people were also watching split-second, hypnotic and repetitive animations, also presumably to avoid doing their homework.

Creepy? Awesome? Creepy-Awesome.

These pre-digital GIFs were optical tricks, and were viewed on rotating devices called phenakistoscope and zoetropes. Wired Magazine reported last week on the man that has made it his mission to bring these seriously psychedelic animations to the Internet generation.

How many frogs can one guy eat?

Richard Balzer has spent decades collecting these fascinating, totally addictive toys of procrastinators past, and turning them into an online treasure-trove of vintage optic animation, dubbed The Richard Balzer Collection. Recently, he recruited Los Angeles animator Brian Duffy to transform some of his illustrated animations into modern-day Internet GIFs. The results are completely mesmerizing, and sometimes perhaps slightly disturbing:

We don’t even know what’s going on in this one.

Don’t you hate it when people just show up at your place without calling?

So. Many. Faces.

You can see more of these mind-boggling animations on Balzer’s Tumblr page.

The way these optical devices work is pretty simple. Most of these examples were viewed through a phenakistoscope, which contained one disk of sequential images:

politeness

The disk had equally spaced slots along the edge, and was attached to a 10-12 inch long stick. To view, you simply look in the mirror, spin the disk and watch the images rotate through the slots. This created the illusion of movement — like a circular flip-book. (Read about zoetropes, another type of moving image device, here.)

Then, this adorably formal couple would flirt, over and over and over again:

Charmed, I’m sure!

And these shockingly nimble jungle animals would repeat the same gymnastic feat:

TK gifs

They nail it. Every. Single. Time.

These toys aren’t the only early photography to have something in common with Internet memes. Eadweard Muybridge, who is credited as the first person to accurately capture a sequence of motion on camera, spent much of his time documenting the Internet’s favorite topic: animals, as seen in split-second animated sequences. Check a couple of his image series below, with an Internet age face-lift.

Is this the first GIF of a buffalo you’ve ever seen?

So remember, next time you find yourself hypnotized by today’s Internet GIFs, you’re not wasting time, you’re engaging in time-honored cultural tradition.
