London, Nov 17 (ANI): The world's first fully functioning sex robots could be heading to the UK.
Inventors in the US say there is an increasing demand from Brits for these mechanical bed partners, including interest from a woman wanting one that looked like TV star Graham Norton.
Scott Maclean, a US construction worker who has spent more than 300,000 pounds on his robot prototypes since 2004, says British customers have contacted him.
"We've had a few people from the UK contact us, including a gentleman who claimed he was a duke. We've got a few people from Europe, Russia, Korea, all over," the Sun quoted Maclean as saying.
"I've had people ask me to create a robot that looks like Angelina Jolie, Pamela Anderson and Michael Jackson. But I can't model them on people in the public eye without the star's permission.
"A couple of weeks ago I was in a discussion with a lady to build one that looked like Graham Norton. She sounded serious," Maclean added.
Maclean's robots - Harry Harddrive and Suzie Software, which do not talk and are not yet on sale - start at around 1,850 pounds
Douglas Hines, 48, has developed "fem-bot" Roxxxy.
She is 5ft 6in, weighs 60lb, is made of hypoallergenic silicone and has human hair.
Roxxxy is able to speak, has different mood settings and is even capable of simulating an orgasm.
And, unlike a real girlfriend, if you get bored with one woman, you can change her into another, pre-programmed personality.
There's Frigid Farrah, Wild Wendy, S and M Susan, Young Yoko and Mature Martha, among others.Douglas, who sells his creations for around 4,000 pounds, said: "We have a relationship with a London adult distributor. We're hoping they will be shipping to Europe by the end of the year." (ANI)
