You don’t need a geisha with a Nag-o-Matic

Enterprising Japanese tech company, Nagumatikku, was demonstrating its latest innovation at the AI Expo in Japan.

The pocket-size device whose name, Jitaku de chīsana on’na, roughly translates as “Little woman at home” has been developed for travelling businessmen who feel lonely staying in hotels and who do not want the services of a geisha.

The businessman gets his wife to speak specific phrases into it which takes several minutes. Then he answers questions about his domestic routine. The device analyses her speech and uses AI (Artificial Intelligence) to carry on a conversation with the businessman using the voice, inflections and attitude of his wife.

One very impressed businessman who tried the unit said: “It’s amazing! She started nagging me about coming home late, not taking out the rubbish, forgetting to pick up the sushi and leaving my socks on the floor. It was just like being at home!”

Later on he confessed: “I really like this machine because I can turn it off!”

The unit is intended for businessmen who travel a lot and who miss their wives but there has been a lot of interest from women who want to give it to their men as a present to remind their husbands of them when they are away.

At the AI Expo, Nagumatikku said it had pre-sold several hundred units. The company’s development manager said it was working on a robot powered by the device which would throw plates and crockery which he believed would improve the company’s sales overseas, particularly in the West.
