By early 2012, a small group of Mt. Gox employees, all of whom worked on one-year contracts, began to worry that customer funds had been diverted to cover operating coststhat they estimated to be rising. Those costs included rent in a Tokyo high-rise that also housed offices for Hulu and Google, high-tech gadgets such as a robot and a 3-D printer and a souped-up, racing version of the Honda Civic imported from Britain for Karpeles, people who have reviewed expenses said.

Holy crap, now that I watch that protest video back again, it all makes sense. Notice how Mark Karpeles almost walks straight into the protester, stopping perfectly in front of him, mouthing some short words and making basic gestures and then simply strafing around him like a video game character collision. Notice how he maintains the same exact stature and composure. THAT was the ROBOT!! He had us all foxed as well as goxxed.

Watch it again (1:50): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ob9Ak1t09Ao

I think the 3-D printer was to make frappuccinos after that incident.

Honestly, I'm not sure why they just don't come right out and let us know if it was a sex robot.  Kiss

I mean, it's Japan. People are wondering.
