What was once a dubious internet meme is now so ubiquitous that it’s being marketed to children by online stores like pedobearstore.com & pedobearplush.com. Now I like child molesting anthropomorphic bears as much as the next guy, but putting Pedobear on an infant creeper is just wrong, although you gotta admit the Pedobear plush is adorable (in a grisly kind of way).

Now that kids have become sufficiently comfortable around Pedobear, Japan is rolling out a robotic version called RIBA short for Robot for Interactive Body Assistance (video below). Its creators claim it will assist nurses in lifting patients, and yet it can only lift up to 135 lbs! It appears that much like his cuddlier counterpart, RIBA specializes in smaller prey patients. But what’s really scary is that RIBA’s big selling points are that it’s very quiet and can run autonomously!

Great, now we won’t even hear this perverted Terminator coming when it unleashes a loli apocalypse.
