Sex or love? The National University of Singapore is staking out the higher ground by teaching robots to “love” their humans. The name for this new science: lovotics, of course.

The robots can also feel happiness, contentedness, jealousy, and disgust. Gee fellas, why not program in overweening ambition and a thirst for revenge while you’re at it. As they say in Westworld, nothing could possibly go wrong.

The love robot looks like either an army helmet or a knitted cap (depending on which video you watch) and sounds suspiciously like R2-D2. The video shows Singaporean girls petting and stroking the little guy. In one, a girl starts by playing with the robot. Then, when she starts chatting up some bearded dude, and the robot throws a jealous tantrum.

Guys, please stop.
