Sexbot Has Arrived Her Name is Roxxxy!

Found this little bit of news over on Drudge Report/The Sun-UK today. First photo is of Roxxy, the other one is suppose to be Mature Martha. Of the two - I think I like Martha the best. While researching this article, the dark haired one was always referred to as Roxxy. But the second picture when I found it attached to a posting about this - it seemed to be in reference to to Mature Martha.

Roxxxy - The world's first Sexbot is proclaimed at the recent AVN (Adult Entertainment Expo) in Las Vegas this past weekend. From a company called True Companion, Roxxxys will cost anywhere from $7,000 to $9,000 in the US. And from that price - you know this is NOT the blow it up, use it, deflate it and hide it from view kinda of doll.

Quote: The dark-haired, lingerie-clad robot has inbuilt artificial intelligence — meaning she can talk footie and cars with her owner. Roxxxy also boasts impressive, flesh-like, synthetic skin.

The revolutionary invention — set to take the sex toy industry by storm — also comes with FIVE different "personalities". The anatomically correct robot has a fake skeleton, letting her move like a REAL woman.

Douglas Hines, the robot's football loving inventor, said the real aim was to make the doll someone the owner can talk to and relate to.

Mr Hines said: "She can't vacuum, she can't cook but she can do almost anything else if you know what I mean.

I have heard of other life-size 'sextoys' that cost as much as this one does, but those other "dolls" did not have the Artificial Intelligence to go with their internal skeleton and life-like skin. And for the ladies/gay men out there, there will be a male version named Rocky. And if you want to know about those "other" dolls, just do your own google search.

UPDATE: Added an additional link to ref section below from article posted on Last paragraph caught my eye and quote: In a 2007 book, "Love and Sex with Robots," British chess player and artificial intelligence expert David Levy argues that robots will become significant sexual partners for humans, answering needs that other people are unable or unwilling to satisfy.
