SEGA Toys have revealed a personal 'robot girlfriend'.

The toy is a 38cm tall bot set to go on sale in September in Japan.

Using infra red sensors, 'EMA' will be able to 'kiss', switching into what Sega calls 'love mode'.

"Strong, tough and battle-ready are some of the words often associated with robots, but we wanted to break that stereotype and provide a robot that's sweet and interactive", said Minako Sakanoue, SEGA Toys.

"She's very lovable and though she's not a human, she can act like a real girlfriend."

EMA stands for 'Eternal Maiden Actualization'...
