Somebody start making life size fembots. Now. I demand it.
Fembots were a pop-culture staple long before Austin Powers battled themâ€”witness the popularity of The Bionic Woman, The Stepford Wives and Blade Runner. But what is it about curvaceous cyborgs that stirs the imagination? To some, fembots represent the perfect male fantasy: Theyâ€™re sexy and submissive and have more techie features than the Xbox 360. But they also have a dangerous side that can reduce walls to rubble and make an army retreat. Perhaps the fembotâ€™s allure resides in her ability to walk the line between total obedience and unfathomable power.
