In what is billed as a world first, a life-size robotic girlfriend complete with artificial intelligence and flesh-like synthetic skin was introduced to adoring fans at the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas on Saturday (local time).
“She can’t vacuum, she can’t cook but she can do almost anything else if you know what I mean,” TrueCompanion’s Douglas Hines said.
“She’s a companion. She has a personality. She hears you. She listens to you. She speaks. She feels your touch. She goes to sleep. We are trying to replicate a personality of a person.”
Roxxxy stands five feet, seven inches tall, weighs 120 pounds, “has a full C cup and is ready for action”, according to Mr Hines, who was an artificial intelligence engineer at Bell Labs before starting TrueCompanion. The anatomically-correct robot has an articulated skeleton that can move like a person but cannot walk or independently move its limbs.
Robotic movement is built into “the three inputs” and a mechanical heart that powers a liquid cooling system. Roxxxy 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 Mr Hines described as having a “matriarchal kind of caring”. S & M Susan is geared for more adventurous types.
Aspiring partners can customise Roxxxy features, including race, hair colour and breast size. A male sex robot named Rocky is in development. …
I vote “no” to artificial women, and “yes” to real women who take the time to understand men. This is not a one sided comment. I’ve spent probably too much time trying to understand in the other direction. In the process, I’ve noticed that some women “get it” about men and the ones who don’t can usually learn. Some never do, but I’m an optimist.
No, I’m afraid the TrueCompanion is far too unrealistic looking to be a Stepford Wife.
