  1. I recall this ELO song from the 1980s. The song is about a guy who falls in love with a robot with a human female form. My favorite line,

    “she has an IQ of 1001, she has a jumpsuit on, she’s also a telephone…”

    The song wasn’t a hit. Somebody created a video to the song that captures the technological romanticism of that era.

  2. “I find this stereotyping of Japanese as being obsessed with robots offensive.”

    I think being obsessed with robots is quite cool – especially if it’s a response to wanting to keep Japan, Japanese.
