Japanese corporations DNP and NICT have developed an robot that will alert women when they forget to bring something with them when they leave the house. The system is based around tiny RFID tags that are attached to keys, wallets, cell phones, handguns, etc. When you pass the robot on your way out of the house, you simply swing the purse in front of a sensor, and the robot automatically checks the RFID tags to see if you're forgetting anything, and if you are, the robot will tell you what you've forgotten. Too bad you can't use RFID tags on your dignity, which is what you're bound to forget when you are constantly swinging your girlfriend's purse in front of a judgmental robot.
