According to the company's website, Roxxxy will be able to “carry on a discussion and [express] her love to you." She can talk to you, listen to you and feel your touch.
World, meet Roxxxy
Roxxxy stands over 5 feet tall and weighs 120 pounds. Her synthetic skin feels real and her artificial intelligence engine is programmed to learn your likes and dislikes. The mechanic lover can also talk to you, and her vocabulary may be updated with the help of a laptop (connected to the back by cables) and the Internet.
However, you have to pay a lot for your robot lover: Roxxxy can be yours for about $ 7,000.
Pro Sex Robots
The-Peak.ca introduces Dr. Kathleen Richardson, a robot anthropologist at England’s De Montfort University. She recently released a paper arguing that sex robots would be “detrimental” to society, as they could replace physical human relationships.
"I don’t believe that robots could replace human relationships at all -- in fact, sex robots could be a great tool for personal exploration of one’s sexual preferences," Hines states. “We are not supplanting the wife or trying to replace a girlfriend. The physical act of sex will only be a small part of the time you spend with a sex robot [..]. At the end of the day, a robot is still a robot. It’s a piece of technology that is supposed to enhance an aspect of real life, and there is nothing detrimental about that."
Anti Sex Robots
The development of sex robots is also leading to the launch of the "Campaign Against Sex Robots" to highlight the potential dangers. Kathleen Richardson, a robot anthropologist and ethics professor at De Montfort University in Leicester, U.K., is leading the campaign. She told CNBC.com recently: "When I first started looking into the subject I thought, 'Oh sex robots, that's harmless and perhaps these robots would reduce demand for real women and children. But then as I researched the subject more I found that the opposite was true -- that rather than reduce the objectification of women, children and also men and transgender people, these robots would contribute and reinforce their position in society (as objects). We have the real use of women and children in the real world (as sex objects) and this kind of paraphernalia reinforces that message."
