The future is here… and it’s a bit more bizarre than expected.
In a first-of-its-kind wedding ceremony, Japan married off two robots, Roborin and Frois, in front of 100 human guests, becoming world’s first ever county to hold such an event.
The bride Roborin, who is apparently modeled after the star of Japanese girl group AKB48 Yuki Kashiwagim, wore an actual wedding dress for the ceremony, while the groom Frois accessorized its red and silver body structure with a bow tie.
As unbelievable as it may sound, the wedding had all the makings of a traditional ceremony with cake, food, dancing, music and even a wedding kiss reminiscent of Hollywood movie Transformers. Fittingly enough, the marriage was officiated by world’s first robot with feelings and ability to recognize human voice and facial expressions, Pepper.
The ceremony and buffet was attended by 100 lucky guests, who each paid roughly $81 to watch the two robots marry each other in Tokyo.
The event was organized by Maywa Denki, the company that designed the groom Frois.
