I-Fairy Robot Marries Japanese Couple, R2-D2 not in Attendance

Paul Lilly

We're not sure whether to laugh, cry, or sign up for an Old Glory insurance plan, but apparently it's now possible to be legally wed by a robot, at least in Tokyo.

The couple in question are both connected with Japan's robotics industry, and now they're legally connected to each other, all thanks to an automated preacher known as I-Fairy.

According to BBC News, I-Fairy, with its flashing eyes and plastic pigtails, instructed the groom to lift the bride's veil for the customary kiss after the two tied the knot. C-3PO was no where be found, nor was Robby, Cylon, or any of these other notable robots .
