For all those lonely men and lesbians out there

Inventor unveils $7,000 talking sex robot

My favorite quotes:

"There's a tremendous need for this kind of product," said Hines, a computer scientist and former Bell Labs engineer. [in engineering circles]

Roxxxy also has sensors in her hands and genital areas -- yes, she is anatomically correct -- that will trigger vocal responses from her when touched. She even shudders to simulate orgasm. [just like a real woman - faking an orgasm]

For an extra fee, he'll also record customizable dialogue and phrases for each client, which means Roxxxy could talk to you about NASCAR, say, or the intricacies of politics in the Middle East. [do I want to meet the man who wants to talk about Middle East politics as he's humping me?]

TrueCompanion also is developing a male sex robot, named Rocky. [you can buy fake Viagra pills to keep him up]

Here's the article.

Ew. That makes me kind of sad...Except for when you wrote this, "[just like a real woman - faking an orgasm]" That made me laugh a lot.

As if I didn't have enough competition! Now I have to vie against a female thing you can order into the closet if you want to get rid of her?

Makes me think of the old movie "Westworld", which was basically about a resort "peopled" by advanced versions of these.
