Ok, this just creeps me out. I can just see Harrison Ford hunting these things down in a dystopian future city. But the best part is this:

 

 

As A-lab is working with highly respected Prof. Ishiguro, Mr. Mita says the company has ruled out producing androids that might be used for sex.

But a spokesman working with Ishiguro’s lab says it is not a great leap of imagination to think similar robots, given the advancement in robotics and silicone skin technology, will be used for sex.

 

'Physical relations will be possible in general with such androids,' said Takahashi Komiyama.

'Androids for the sex industry are a definite possibly. Some have even fallen in love with Ishiguro’s geminoids. So we can't rule those relationships out.'

Wow, here is this marvel of modern robotics and the first thing they think is "yeah but can you f--k them?"

 

Didn't know there were rednecks in Japan! :lol:

well we all know it's just a matter of time when the tech will create self aware machine. most likely it will include protein based neuro sysem hybrid with silicon based wiring. the question is not if, but rather when. and how we will react to this.

Will we be able to f--k them?

Sex bots? A robot that can cook and mix drinks is a thousand times more appealing. Clean the bathroom, too, make sure to disinfect your robot hands before baking cookies. 

Now imagine one that does all of the above!

Women would be obsolete! Long live the patriarchy!

if you would read the article you would see that there are already very realistic sex dolls, so I assume that the answer would be yes and that would be one cold b...

:lol:  Sure the future survival of the species might be at risk but for those of us with robot wives life would be a lot less complicated!

Nope. We could just grow humans. That is; after we upload our brains into uber robots to achieve immortality and conquer the universe!

"Good thing I don't heal my characters or they'd be really hurt." Is not something I should ever be thinking.

 

I use blue text when I'm being sarcastic.

so wait a minute, you want to tell me, that the Matrix robots are actually ascended into machine form humans and they breed regular ones for power sources?

No, because humans are a ****ty source of power. Better to go with a potato farm.

Thank you Jesus, and just in time when every woman seems to have come down with a bad case of feminism. Now if only they could program them to do their own hair and makeup and cleaning. I really don't want to have to do those things.

I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*

2000AD has run several stories where sexbots are central. Murders, thefts, etc.

Between VR and these things, and being able to do business via video-chats, people may soon only meet during scheduled fertilization appointments. :lol: Hm, reminds me of that one planet in Asimov's robot novels.

 

...and if one could clean the litter boxes for me, that'd be great too.

Atleast they will not nag about what kind of shirt you're bringing to work.

I'm skeptical. Those robots seem to still have a baaad case of uncanny valley, and we don't even see them moving.

 

Also, the costs are going to be immense. I don't mean to be crude, but to the gentlemen who dream of having one as a wife? You could probably safe money if you would just take a maid and the occasional escort girl, if your demands for companionship are only to have someone who does work around the house and has sex with you. :p

Never attribute to malice that which can adequately be explained by incompetence.

They still look a bit like cadavers to me. Maybe it's the blood vessels just under the skin that are just hard to fake. 

 

That's an interesting notion. You are aware that the network of veins we have is quite as unique as a fingerprint?

 

If we assume that the eye can pick out the vessels subconsciously, then the absence of that data would trigger a subconscious feeling of unease.
