The world’s first “sex robot”, a life-size rubber doll called Roxxxy who can have real conversations with her owner, including about football, has been unveiled. The dark-haired, negligee-clad, life-size robotic girlfriend comes complete with artificial intelligence and flesh-like synthetic skin.

Standing five feet, seven inches tall, the doll weighs 120 pounds, comes with five “personalities”, is “ready for action” her developers said.

There is Wild Wendy, who is outgoing and adventurous, Frigid Farrah, who is reserved and shy, a young unnamed doll with a naïve personality, “matriarchal kind of caring” Mature Martha and S & M Susan, who is geared for more adventurous types.

Something for everybody.

The blonde one doesn’t have the AI, so it’s a little cheaper.

Until they come out with a robot that can cook and clean I’ll remain content in my marriage. After that, I’ll have to start watching my back, I guess!

“She can't vacuum, she can't cook but she can do almost anything else if you know what I mean,”

So, they used my ex-wife for the template?

“She's a companion. She has a personality. She hears you. She listens to you."

Oh wait, never mind.

When will they come out with a robot that puts the toilet seat down and gives up the remote once in awhile?

Great. All the future technology geeks will hook up with her instead of finally getting married.

After three generations, we won’t have anybody left who knows how to fix anything except for her.

Two points here...

Why is it incumbent upon men to put the seat down...why don't women share equal responsibility to put it up?

And more importantly...if they'd like, we could just leave it down and p!ss all over it...would they prefer that?

No... trust me, I’ve tried it and 100% of the survey sample did NOT prefer it. (N=1, margin of error zero)

She is wirelessly linked to the internet for software updates, technical support and to send her man email messages, he said

That is pretty fracked up right there.

Still, imagine if someone at CRU had had one of these.

Don't worry, modern science to the rescue ...

A male version of the doll, dubbed Rocky, is also planned.

this is not a problem in my house of boys... they were all taught during potty training to lift the seat when doing the deed, put the seat down and then the lid... flush... wash hands... the job was complete after they washed their hands... why most parents are just satisfied when their toddlers just pee in the toilet is beyond me... at least teach them the washing their hands step... i love that my boys are rough and tumblers with a touch of genteelity...

She can’t vacuum, she can’t cook but she can do almost anything else if you know what I mean,” the New Jersey-based artificial intelligence engineer said.

I’m reminded of the words of that great American philosopher Rodney Dangerfield:

“Marry a woman who can cook. The sex will wear off but you’ll always be hungry.”

Who will be the first guy that wants to marry his doll? If gays can marry, why not humans and robots? Then who will be the first gay guy that wants to marry his gay guy robot? Guarantee you, it’s coming, not a question of if but when.
