How does God-Jesus work?
I think this is one of the most amazing toys ever manufactured and I feel very lucky and priviliged to have managed to get my hands on one!
So, what is this thing you might ask? Well, it's a fortune telling robot named "God-Jesus" that carries a large plastic cross in his hand and passes judgement on your questions. You ask God-Jesus a "Yes or No" question, clap your hands and God-Jesus gets to work answering your question. After a bow (it's made in Japan after all and even God-Jesus has some basic courtesy) it rolls forward, bows once again and then starts contemplating the question by flashing it's red eyes. After a few moments of thinking it will deliver it's judgement which can be one of four, strong nodding indicating "Yes, surely", weaker nodding indicating "probably, yes", slight shaking of the head indicating "probably, no" or heavy shaking of the head indicating "No, never". Bowing again, then rolling back to its initial position and giving one final bow before resting.
Is this real? Is it just a machine or does it carry divine judgement you might ask yourself. I wish I was wise enough to answer that, but in the manual it states that the robot is "half joke, half serious".
