Robot Wedding, Would You Say I Do?

This robot can perform a marriage ceremony and look good doing it. It is kind of a Metropolis-Honda vs table centerpiece look.

"The i-Fairy is a 4 foot tall robot which officially pronounced Satoko Inoue and Tomohiro Shibata man and wife. The robot is made by Kokoro Ltd, of which Inoue is an employee and Shibata, a client. Since the couple believed that the robot was responsible for their meeting, they wanted it to preside over their wedding." via-PSFK

Satoko and Tomohiro have given their robot the responsibility of creating a legal bond between them. One of the most important decisions they'll ever make. It makes me wonder, shouldn't it also look the part? When thinking about the future, at what point do you think that robots will develop a sense of taste and decorum appropriate to the events they attend and in this case, administer?

Oh, Japan.

At least it's in classy colors and looks kind of like it has a tailcoat?
A cute story, and unique way to commemorate their meeting. Very good company relations in the future, I bet.

We thought about using a wakumaru at ours, but the shipping was insane to coordinate.
