In the Business section of this morning’s Boston Globe is this blurb from the Associated Press:
A New Jersey company says it has developed “the world’s first sex robot,” a life-size rubber doll that’s designed to engage the owner with conversation rather than lifelike movement.
So many punch lines and so little time! Reading on:
The dark-haired, negligee-clad robot said “I love holding hands with you” when it sensed that its creator touched its hand. Another action, this one unprintable, elicited a different vocal response from Roxxxy the robot.
Oooh. Saucy. Now, talk to us about the “sex” part of “sex robot” a little:
It has sensors at strategic locations and can sense when it’s being moved. But it can’t move on its own, not even to turn its head or move its lips.
No further questions, your honor.
