Science Fiction Brewed Fresh Daily

A Real Electric Monk

An “I-Fairy” robot presided at a wedding ceremony in Tokyo last Sunday. The groom is a professor of robotics and the bride is an employee at Sanrio’s humanoid robotics division (although a BoingBoing commenter had a more plausible theory).

The little robot’s normal job is to conduct people around museums, but Sanrio reprogrammed it for the occasion. It is, according to Sanrio, the world’s first robot-officiated wedding.
