Inventor Unveils $7000 Talking Sex Robot

Excerpt:

 

Las Vegas, Nevada (CNN) -- To some men, she might seem like the perfect woman: She's a willowy 5 feet 7 and 120 pounds. She'll chat with you endlessly about your interests. And she'll have sex whenever you please -- as long as her battery doesn't run out.

 

Meet Roxxxy, who may be the world's most sophisticated talking female sex robot. For $7,000, she's all yours.

 

"She doesn't vacuum or cook, but she does almost everything else," said her inventor, Douglas Hines, who unveiled Roxxxy last month at the Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada.

 

Lifelike dolls, artificial sex organs and sex-chat phone lines have been keeping the lonely company for decades. But Roxxxy takes virtual companionship to a new level.

 

Powered by a computer under her soft silicone "skin," she employs voice-recognition and speech-synthesis software to answer questions and carry on conversations. She even comes loaded with five distinct "personalities," from Frigid Farrah to Wild Wendy, that can be programmed to suit customers' preferences.

 

"There's a tremendous need for this kind of product," said Hines, a computer scientist and former Bell Labs engineer.

 

Roxxxy won't be available for delivery for several months, but Hines is taking pre-orders through his Web site, TrueCompanion.com, where thousands of men have signed up.

 

"They're like, 'I can't wait to meet her,' " Hines said. "It's almost like the anticipation of a first date."

 

Women have inquired about ordering a sex robot, too. Hines says a female sex therapist even contacted him about buying one for her patients.

 

The robot runs on a self-contained battery that lasts about three hours on one charge, Hines says. Customers can recharge Roxxxy with an electrical cord that plugs into her back.

 

A motor in her chest pumps heated air through a tube that winds through the robot's body, which Hines says keeps her warm to the touch. Roxxxy also has sensors in her hands and genital areas -- yes, she is anatomically correct -- that will trigger vocal responses from her when touched. She even shudders to simulate orgasm.

 

When someone speaks to Roxxxy, her computer converts the words to text and then uses pattern-recognition software to match them against a database containing hundreds of appropriate responses. The robot then answers aloud -- her prerecorded "voice" is supplied by an unnamed radio host -- through a loudspeaker hidden under her wig.

 

"Everything you say to her is processed. It's very near real time, almost without delay," Hines said of the dynamics of human-Roxxxy conversation. "To make it as realistic as possible, she has different dialogue at different times. She talks in her sleep. She even snores." (The snoring feature can be turned off, he says.)

 

Roxxxy understands and speaks only English for now, but Hines' True Companion company is developing Japanese and Spanish versions. For an extra fee, he'll also record customizable dialogue and phrases for each client, which means Roxxxy could talk to you about NASCAR, say, or the intricacies of politics in the Middle East.

I'm speechless...

 

The first thing I thought was :To create her shape, a female model spent a week posing for a series of molds. I wonder how much THAT job paid?

 

The next thing I thought was, shes MUCH cheaper than a wife. (Trust me on that one).

Things will get quite interesting when we see massproduction of sex-robots for people with more perserve tastes. Think of anything that would considered illegal against a normal person, but since it is only a robot...

The bald dude is more attractive than the doll. >:

Notice how I can belittle your beliefs without calling you names. It's a useful skill to have particularly where you aren't allowed to call people names. It's a mistake to get too drawn in/worked up. I mean it's not life or death, it's just two guys posting their thoughts on a message board. If it were personal or face to face all the usual restraints would be in place, and we would never have reached this place in the first place. Try to remember that.

Anything with a pulse is more attractive than the doll.

 

I was going to say Anne Widdecombe, but I think she's dead.

The face looks like it was made in the Oblivion character creation program. It's completely broken.

Customer to doll: "May I put a bag over your head?"

Doll to customer: "If that excites you, my love, then yes."

 

Customer to seller: "I'll take her."

Just like anime kids porn are illegal so the Supreme Court may one day rule in a United States vs Mr.Pervert case to jail people for sexually abusing robots.

Oh, snap! Someone found a typo!

 

Exactly! When the times allow it, i will order a grammar nazibot to Gorgon. Who knows what it will actually do, but i think that he will be happy with it.

Well, now when the robots inevitably rebel against their human masters they will have a valid reason. Human perverts. :thumbsup:

 

Been done in the comic 2000AD.

We could sell bags with celebrity heads on them. We could make millions.

 

Edit: I think it
