I agree, lonely guys with guns and sex robots, they do tend to go hand in hand in terms of topics.

They'll be here shortly. They are becoming popular in Japan because they have a labor shortage there, particularly for menial tasks, so they have perfected robots for household chores.

It's already known that smartphones and other smart / IoT devices are listening, watching and reporting data upstream.

Now imagine (ew... or not) the data that gets collected and uploaded from an AI sexbot and how it can be used against you by your political or business enemies.

I just have got this horrific image of some dude setting a robot doll up and getting all ready to start going to town on the thing.

I mean that image is at once both horrifyingly embarrassing and sad beyond measure at the same time.

Maybe it's just me, who knows?

I've been thinking about this lately because my friend just lost a child. I think maybe this technology would help grieving people. Making a child look exactly like the one you lost, this will help so many grieving parents.


That sounds more like Pet Cemetery!
