CNET News Poll
This week our collective hard drives (ahem) were titillated by news of Roxxxy, a life-size, artificially intelligent, and fully functional sex robot billed as the first of its kind in the world. Roxxxy comes with five preset personalities with names such as "Wild Wendy," "Mature Martha," and "Frigid Farrah."
New Jersey-based inventor Douglas Hines of True Companion says Roxxxy can converse about topics including soccer and can sense when she's being touched, thanks to her tactile sensors. She's also wirelessly linked to the Internet, and users can customize her personalities and share them with others online.
Clad in her negligee and gazing at us with her come-hither, albeit vacant, eyes, Roxxxy quickly cast a spell, evoking synthetic babes of sci-fi yore ranging from Maria of "Metropolis" to Pris of "Blade Runner." She also prompted us to imagine what it would be like to finally date an artificial lady programmed to make us feel good.
So, what would you do if you had a night alone with Roxxxy? Vote in our poll, and if you think up anything we've missed, leave a comment in our TalkBack section below.
