Probably the most pathetic thing I have read in quite a long time.

beelze, sadly very few men talk about stock markets, and other world developments these days.

ahh well, in the old days it was goats and other furry friends that copped it from the desperate and depraved. At least these rubber nasties are taking one (or many) for the farm friends team.

Just checked the link from RichardIIII. Oh my goodness, what is wrong with the people here. When there are soooo many pretty, real women here, with real skin, warmth, fragrance, how can these people fool themselves with these plastic/rubber things. Yes, Japan sure is going to be sexless if companies are going to rip people off their monies and draw them away from normal human behavior.

I am really looking forward to getting it on, er, sorry, let's say "engaging in stimulating conversation" about the latest stock market predictions.

This will be a big seller in Japan.

This Honey Dolls company have an interesting website - probably best not suited to work.

At 750,000 for a full body that's a lot of hookers really.

Kind of disturbing in a way though. I can very easily imagine some feeble minded guy going a bit nutty with one of them.

I cant wait until they are life like. Woman will make kids by artificial insemination, men will take robot wives, and gays will be the only ones getting married.

Low maintenance guys are going to need the self sanitizing model to keep the little beasties from growing in the latex...gross, but true...

Konata, this is useful for some. Have you seen some of the nerds in Akihaba? I mean it's as responsive as a maid too.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Yucky wucky! Blimey, you would have to be a sad git to have to use this!

Worse than going to a prossie inmy eyes.

I can't understand how you would enjoying 'humping' this, it's like banging a dead person with a voice box. She doesn't move, but talks. Wouldn't you get sick her repeating herself? Even with the ability to discuss things, she probably has the same 'sex lines' eg. Oh your so big. I like it! ooooh. lol. It's sad. Btw, yes the male version called Rocky is in development. It amazes me that we have time to come up with this technology, rather than something useful.

I want the distribution rights for Japan.

Careful not to electrocute yourselves when you get her wet.

How pathetic that this even made it here. The feet and legs look more like a man's.

The robot doesn't move on it's own...a robot without robotics...Some guys may even say their partner at home doesn't move on it's own either, and $7,000 may be much cheaper than the real thing in the long run...It will be interesting to see how far they go with robots in the next 20 years...I'm sure that someone in Japan will want to marry one of these this year...

Soon enough the otaku won't have to go to Akihabara and all the maid cafes will go out of business....

NOPE, I don't think that will happen!

sebarashii, what about facebook updates? Or youtube videos?

OK, I'll stop now.

Holy smokes this had me laughing so hard my head hurts! Honestly though I wouldn't take any notice of this until I couldn't tell the difference between a real woman and an android. Therefore it must have at least a 10%-30% B***h chip built in for added realism! Everything else is just a weak imitation xD... seriously this is just hilarious though!

there’s a laptop connected to cables coming out of its back

A very brief selection of about a million Windows jokes that crossed my mind in an instant:

"Your free trial-version of (insert sexual practice) has expired." "Do you want to send an error report now?" "Look's like you're trying to hump a lump of latex. Do you want some help?"

This is a personal challenge to Japan's national pride. Japan will top it. They probably have several prototypes waiting in storage. They just haven't decided which model to debut first. Japan's dolls will sex you up, sing and clean your ears. The US

"different personalities for Roxxxy from "Wild Wendy to "Frigid Farrah"

How about "Dynamite Dolphingirl" or "Lickety Love"?

The guy who drools over the robot in the picture embodies everything ridiculous and bad in a man.

Sex Robot focuses on appealing to the mindless :(

That isn't a robot, it is a latex doll with a wii controller and a laptop in it.

There is another female robot made in Canada. She is a Japanese girl and her name is Aiko. She is cuter, younger and more feminine than Roxxxy. It was not developed for market yet! Her picture and movement can be viewed from www.projectaiko.com.

The problem with robots are needed to edit and update the program coding frequently.

An engineer, Hines said he was inspired to create the robot after a friend died in the Sept 11, 2001, terror attacks. That got him thinking about preserving his friend’s personality, to give his children a chance to interact with him as they’re growing up.

so naturally, he created a talking sex doll.

The head is customizable but he chose one of the worst to show the world, in other photos you can see her lower jaw protruding more than her upper one which only appeals to cavemen.

Japan's going to create the first realistic sexdoll, not America. This pitiful excuse for a doll doesn't event move its eyelids, it just gives a glassy stare.

Hey Dolphingirl, here are some names I thought of for the man robots: Rowdy Ralph, and Straight-laced Stewart.

"The level of sophistication demonstrated was not beyond that of a child’s talking toy ...it can already discuss Manchester United ..." Yes, indeed.

Between animation and these sex dolls, in about 50 yrs, women will be outdated... who wants to put up with their BS..

So, can you hump it?

"Another action, this one unprintable, elicited a different vocal response from Roxxxy the robot" I think that answers your question.

Now, that raises the question: Who would want to hump something which kind of looks like a cross-dessing pre-gender re-assigment male?

Hahahaha hahahahaha. Just.... hahaha!!
