The ultimate in sex toys is what innovative inventors are trying to create to be sold at the Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas. The place continues to be hot for all kinds of high-tech sex gizmos and gadgetries of all shapes and sizes.
One such creator is Douglas Hines, who unveiled his latest and the world’s first sex robot invention – Roxxxy.
Roxxxy was conceptualized by Hines with the help of expert artists and engineers from three countries who came up with a design that would allow the sex robot to “deliver the best in robot sex.”
Hines is an electrical engineer and computer scientist who used to work on artificial intelligence at AT&T Bell Laboratories. It took him and his associates two and a half years to come up with Roxxxy, which is being marketed by Truecompanion.com with a price tag between $500,000 and $1 million.
According to True Companion’s Web site, Roxxxy “can carry on a discussion and express her love to you and be your loving friend. She can talk to you, listen to you and feel your touch”.
A Japanese company, Honey Dolls, makes life-size sex dolls that can play recorded sounds, but Roxxxy’s sensors and speech capabilities appear to be more sophisticated. Hines’ goals are certainly more far-reaching.
“Sex only goes so far – then you want to be able to talk to the person,” Hines said.
