A "Robot Wedding" in Aoyama? What's Going On Here?

"Robo Kon" performance art event will hold nuptials for Froisurobo and Roborin

 

In a bizarre piece of performance art, Froisurobo and Roborin, a robot with a bath stool for a head and a gynoid designed to resemble AKB48's Yuki Kashiwagi, will be tying the knot in June at a venue in Aoyama. The wedding will be hosted by the social companionship robot, Pepper.

 

 

The “Robo Kon” event takes place at the Aoyama CAY restaurant bar in Aoyama, Tokyo, Japan on June 27, 2015. Admission to the event costs 10,000 yen ($83.15 US) and comes with access to a wedding reception style buffet. Of course, since weddings are a solemn occasion, formal dress is required.
