Make it do whatever you want by using an old rc-car controller. With just two directional joystick controls you can make her flawlessly imitate a human being.

Creepy commercial.

I know I am missing the point of this comic but wouldn't a need for a remote control be a step backwards compared to voice control??

Maybe this new model has a diferent aim from the original fembot. Lets say the regular fembot is programed to fill the role of a girlfreind for the customer. This would require a voice recognition program to run multiple commands that determine behavior.
Now lets say this new fembot 3000 has a diferent focus. Instead of a girlfriend this new model could only be meant to fill the role of sex partner, which could explain why the controls are as simple as up and down. This could be in order to eliminte the shades of humanity that could be seen in previous models.

And yes, this is nasty and i hope im really wrong at some point. I dont even like this vision, im just trying to think as an evil and perverted salesman with a tail and horns. Hell, i dont even think i agree with myself anymore here.

On the other hand, i remembered this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NUFIOsIpDhg Smile

I'm fairly certain the whole RC controller thing is just because Tat doesn't want to try to come up with what such a remote would realistically look like, it's just supposed to be representational. Sort of like how doorways often don't have handles and shelves aren't realistically packed with things, you just get enough that your brain goes "oh, it's a shelf with products" or "oh there's a shop in the background". Likewise, "oh, they're using a remote to control the fembot".

Also, probably easier comic "language" to indicate control. Same reason the "save" function on most programs still shows a floppy disk.

Cause enough bullshit and you will be replaced. Good job killing of your product line, you ARE the last of the Fembots.

That one being advertised looks the same as she does, and may be a newer model.

Then again, you've said she's jst a robot with no sentience - in which case, why would she care if there are more fembts or not?

It's interesting that the fembots don't seem to trigger the 'uncanny valley' effect in anyone in this setting. I suppose they must either be perfect replicas, the effect doesn't exist in the psychology of these humans, or it has been overcome with a lot of Devilcorps propaganda.

I think the controller only switches modes. Depending on mode the fembots should work with different protocols. They probably don't neer more than the eight possible alternatives that the controller provides in order to be 'functional.'
