Robot Thread.

Lol, post all robot related news here.

Since i've seen more then one relating to robots, i thought i make a thread dedicated to them. And since robots r often updating any new crazy info on them can be posted here.

Robot Lookalike Builds Home In Uncanny Valley



See that above? That’s roboticist Hiroshi Ishiguro. Well, one of them is Hiroshi, and the other one is his robot doppelganger. I think the robot is the one on the right, but I’m not sure. Either way, it’s spectacularly creepy, right? However, you might want one of your own. Millennium Retailing, parent company of Japanese department stores Sogo, Seibu, and Robinsons, have announced a special sale. For the low price of $223,000, you too can have your own humanoid robot lookalike.

The robots are based off of the Actroid, from Japanese robotics firm Kokoro, known for robot receptionists throughout Japan. These personalized robots will look like, sound like, make expressions like, and will even move like their owners. It’s like Surrogates, but in real life. The catch is Kokoro is only going to make two of them. Thank goodness; I couldn’t bear to see a bunch of those super-creepy robots wandering around, being disturbing.

More robots here...i guess by same company.

My friend told me Gackt the great Japanese rocker has a robot clone. And a few other jpop/jrock artist o.o...but their speech pattern still sounds kinda robotish.


Btw i know the Gackt thing true cos my japanese friend told me...and she lives in japan. she was shock i didn't know considering how old news that was. O.o

Sex-bot debuts at porn industry confab



Los Angeles, Jan 12 (DPA) High technology has come to the glamorous world of sex dolls.
A company called Perfect Companion said Monday that it has debuted the world’s first sex robot, named Roxxxy, complete with artificial intelligence that give her a life-like personality and flesh-like synthetic skin that can make her feel like a real woman.

In a statement, creator Douglas Hines says that Roxxxy, which debuted over the weekend at the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo, can be “programmed to learn your likes and dislikes” as well as “listen, feel, and speak to her owner.”

The 170 cm, 54 kg doll comes from the factory with four distinct “girlfriend personalities,” including Frigid Farrah, Wild Wendy, Mature Martha, and more. Users can also built custom profiles online and swap them with friends. Though the doll’s limbs do not move autonomously “she is always turned on and ready to talk or play,” the company said.

The doll goes on sale this week for $7,000 plus a monthly subscription fee. True Companions said it is working on a male sex robot to be called Rocky True Companion.

* Roxxxy TrueCompanion is anatomically consistent with a human
* She can hear you, speak to you, feel your touch, carry on a conversation, and have an orgasm
* Artificial intelligence engine lets Roxxxy learn your likes and dislikes
* Comes preloaded with 5 separate girlfriend personalities, including:
-Frigid Farrah (reserved and shy)
-Wild Wendy (outgoing and adventurous)
-Young (”she is oh so young (barely 18) and waiting for you to teach her”)
* You can design your own personality profiles and share them online
(edit some stuff out for sensitive users.)

Re: Robot Thread.

Relating to the sexbox article.

Quote:
First male Sex Box, Rocky

Don’t worry ladies if you’re feeling left out in the cold after hearing about the world’s first hot sexy robot, Roxxxy.

A male sex robot named Rocky is said to be hitting the market in a few months, but let’s hope he isn’t as conversational as the giant, synthetic woman with a real skeleton (does that mean she has real bones?).

My No. 1 "Weird BUTT True" news flash for the week ending Jan. 15 is Roxxxy, who has been built for play and conversation.

For the price of $9,000, anyone can buy Roxxxy and even customize her with unique personalities, according to Douglas Hines, founder True Companion LLC in Lincoln Park, New Jersey.

Forget about the sex here; I didn’t think men liked much talking? According to Hines, though, Roxxxy can carry on simple conversations: The real aim is to make the doll someone the owner can talk and connect to.

Connect is right, but I doubt conversation is going to play a big factor. My biggest question is, who will poor Roxxxy relate to?


Does that mean he’s ready for a Roxxxy? Somehow I don't think so.

The former stripper described the accident as the most painful thing he’s ever experienced.
After being taken to hospital more than an hour away, Tatum struggled to cope with the agony.

He added: "I said to the driver, who was ex-special-forces Marines, 'You might have to knock me out, because I don't know if I can take the pain. Just grab something and hit me on the back of my head.

"I had five guys looking at my shriveled, burned penis," he said. "I'm good now. My penis is fantastic - 100 percent recovered. Put me back in the game, Coach."



(edit some stuff out for sensitive users.)

Mods i had to double post because my character limit reached when i was adding this thread.
So please disregard the double post.

Anyway i think this is pretty horrible how the world coming to already. We barely have robots out and already they being used for sexual purpose. -__-

So sick...
Where r the maid robots...why are the sex ones out first for profit?
Or maybe they not known yet..but i doubt that.

This sex robot date was in jan..so this pretty new news...same go for that Surrogate lookin robot.

Re: Robot Thread.

i have to agree wuth seyluv, i cant believe that we're realy not that far into robotic technology and we already have port bots....i mean, yes we can make the robots and have them interact and what not, but we still dont realy know much about robotics and the programming that goes into it to become like the house slaves and stuff

Re: Robot Thread.

Soon Judgement Day will be upon us. And all robots shall strike back the humans and take over the world. Soon they'll probably make a Robot President.
