A Chinese engineer married a robot he built after struggling to find a human wife. He is already looking to upgrade her to do housework, according to local news reports.
Bot builder Zheng Jiajia, 31, wed one of his cyber creations on Friday in a traditional Chinese ceremony in front of his mom and friends, according to the South China Morning Post.
The bionic bride, dubbed Yingying, can only say a few words and read a few Chinese characters. She is technically less than a year old, but Zheng plans on upgrading her to walk and help out around the house.
A friend said that Zheng, an expert in artificial intelligence, decided to tie the knot after growing sick of his friends and family pestering him about settling down, according to Shanghaiist.
The pair “dated” for two months before he popped the question.
