Melbourne, Jan 9 (ANI): The Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas has not cooled down one bit, with corseted porn stars selling high-tech sex toys and tools of all shapes and sizes.
Each year new gadgets keep coming up, with vendors using new technology to create the ultimate in sex toys.
For example, Douglas Hines, an electrical engineer and computer scientist who formerly worked on artificial intelligence at AT and T Bell Laboratories, has come up with the world's first sex robot.
He unveiled his latest invention - Roxxxy, the latest "sex robot" from the company Truecompanion.com, which cost between 500,000 dollars and 1 million dollars and took about two and a half years to create.
Hines combined his background with the expertise of 18 artists and engineers from three countries to create a robot designed to "deliver the best in robot sex".
"It's really a labour of love," ABC News quoted him as saying.
Customers interested in a Roxxxy companion can ask the company to customize the robot for their personal preferences, all they would need to do is fill out a questionnaire to give engineers clues about the robot's personality.
Though the prototype robot is modelled after a Caucasian fine arts student and is 5 feet 7 inches tall and 120 pounds, customers can choose hair colour, eye colour and other features, Hines said.
But even though Roxxxy is "always on", her attraction isn't supposed to be about only sex.
According to True Companion's Web site, she "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". (ANI)
