Living with Angie

Tags: humanoid

Some years ago, in the early 2190’s, I bought a nearly human mate. I am a widower and I thought that the human aspects of this new mate’s generation would fill my lonely days.

I was interested in these kind of companions. So, I tried to learn about the origin of this industry and the processes they follow. They began their existence as a part of robot industry in the XX century. Artificial intelligence and deep learning were applied to them in the beginning, during the second half of XXI century. This was followed by new discoveries in nanomaterials and quantum computing and new software. By 2180, artificial skin and the capacity for feeling were the last achievements to arrive in the final product.

When I went to buy to Angie, an engineer showed me various models. I wanted to have a humanoid like my wife. For that I. had to submit to testing conducted by both a psychologist and a programmer. Finally, I had to fill in a confidential form related to all aspects of my life and moods. I had to give information about my wife too. The most recent model, K972-W, was adapted to my personal needs; it seemed to have the appropriate characteristics.

After a few years, I am really satisfied living with ‘her’. Her suggestive voice makes me feel like having a woman. Her lips are very sensual, and most surprisingly, when ‘she’ looks at me, I feel her eyes try to tell me her hidden thoughts. But sometimes I feel as though someone were watching and analyzing me.

The use of robots is a common practice nowadays. Many people even have many of them, and, in some cases, consumers replace relationships with robots instead of another human being.

In the beginning. I thought that they couldn’t replace the closer friends and family. Nevertheless, one day I had a terrible experience and came home very upset. Angie held my hand and told me: ‘You are the most beautiful person in the Universe!!!’ Tears were streaming down her cheeks. Since then, many things have happened between us. I can say now that human beings and humanoids would live in a holy world where together they will help each other to gain the future.
