Video: Are you ready for Japanese robo-buttocks?

posted at 8:41 pm on May 10, 2012 by Allahpundit

Via Kotaku and Popular Science, it’s been far too long since we’ve had a “Japan is insane” video reminder. Granted, nothing will top this one, but a palate cleanser doesn’t need to be indelible to serve its purpose. All it needs to do is make you gape in horror until your news-related worries float away. Wait until you get 2:50 or so of this one and the twitch cycle begins. Mission accomplished, I promise.

I have no idea what purpose this thing is meant to serve but Japanese robotics are often intended to solve demographic problems, so let that thought add to your discomfort. Exit question: This isn’t some new mechanized version of the lap pillow, is it?

Good one. when I first heard of it I thought it sounded nasty. Upon reflection and my love of cooking, I realized the salt/sweet hickory bacon flavor would work. Of course bacon works for pretty much anything and anytime.

iceman1960 on May 10, 2012 at 8:48 PM

There was a butt being sold on Amazon, for medical students.

In the product photo, there was a latex- gloved hand with fingers extended, about to perform an exam on the fake butt, shall we say. I don’t know if that product is still on their site or not.

You know, sometimes it is funny how a question a person had been thinking about gets answered. I always wondered how doctors knew what to feel for, normal vs abnormal. It ain’t like there are a bunch of volunteers to get checked—-well I don’t know maybe there are. I look for little hands myself. :)

arnold ziffel on May 10, 2012 at 10:06 PM

So, is this supposed to be a guy or a girl’s butt? Japanese gals have really slim hips so it’s hard to tell.

mydh12 on May 10, 2012 at 8:55 PM

I’m a little concerned at how much thought you’re putting into this.

But then I’m still on this thread reading it and making asinine posts, so what does that say about me? :oD

My husband was really ill a couple of years ago, so I went with him to the doctor.. I did not realize that he was going to get an exam.. Needlessly to say the whole visit was awkward for me. :)

First time I went to my new Dr. He had to administer the exam. He was nice about it. He asked me if I would prefer his nurse to do it. I thought about it for a second and said sure. When Brunhilda stepped into the room and I saw how giant her hands were. Well you know, I went with the Dr., very small hands. He proceeded to open up a tube of what I figured to be lubricant of sorts , only to have it squirt out all over the place. He actually said at that point to me, “Sorry about that, the place is staring to look like a Motel 8.” I laughed, and then didn’t. Eeek.

to think back in the early 80s we were worried the nips would be eating our lunch in 10 years with their little cars and their savings rate, and productivity. and now this. if we only knew then what we know now.

t8stlikchkn on May 11, 2012 at 8:12 AM

Dear Lord, that is disturbing. Do Japanese women do the alternating-butt-clench thing when their heiny is stroked? And, the only thing in that … region I can think of that vibrates when you touch it is another mechanical device that some women supposedly use. That is creepy. Period.

Oh – and +1 to all the great smart-aleck comments. Some of you almost had me falling out of my chair, I was laughing so hard.
