AFP: ROXXXY the sex robot is having a coming out party Saturday in Sin City. In what is billed as a world first, a life-size robotic girlfriend complete with artificial intelligence and flesh-like synthetic skin will be introduced to adoring fans at the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas.
Roxxxy stands five-feet, seven inches tall; weighs 120 pounds, ‘has a full C cup and is ready for action,’ according to Hines, who was an artificial intelligence engineer at Bell Labs before starting TrueCompanion.
Roxxxie comes with five personalities. Wild Wendy is outgoing and adventurous while Frigid Farrah is reserved and shy. There is a young naive personality along with a Mature Martha that Hines described as having a ‘matriarchal kind of caring.’ S & M Susan is geared for more adventurous types.
People ordering the robots online at truecompanion.com detail their tastes and interests in a way similar to that at online dating sites but the information is used to get the mechanical girlfriend in synch with her mate. ‘She knows exactly what you like,’ said Hines. ‘If you like Porsches, she likes Porsches. If you like soccer, she likes soccer.’
Roxxxy is wirelessly linked to the Internet for software updates as well as technical support and sending her man email messages. People can customise robotic girlfriends’ personalities and then share the programs with others online at truecompanion.com, according to Hines.
Ok, so what’s next? A thriving robot porn industry? Passing of a bill to recognise robort-human marriages?
