All of this has happened before...but the question remains - does all of this have to happen again?

Lack of disease, a willingness to do whatever is wanted, inability to say "no", why is this a surprise?

I'll take a Cherry 2000 please.

FTA: One of the best of the bunch is Japan's all singing and dancing female robot, HRP-4C, from the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST).

The main drawback of this type of robot is that they have a very short battery life - they only last for about 20 minutes.

The article lacked on the sexual ability of the robot and kept yammering on and on about whether or not it is going to hold you afterwords....bleh.

That's the last frakking thing I need is for my sexbot to blow me...out an airlock.

Buy it, use it, return for full refund.

I imagine the Microsoft Sexbot 20 minute Windows update to be a real boner kill.  Just like all of their others.

I dunno man, the Cherry 2000 customer service center sucks hard. I don't want to have to chase down Melanie Griffith every time I need some spare parts.

It's very very simple! Just read the damn manual! Don't submerse your Cherry 2000 in water and you can enjoy years of trouble free service.

Holograms don't leave their vaginas in the sink.

Okay, Cherry 2000, check, Fisto, check.  Fisto Roboto?  Eh, Krieger so close enough.  Space Pope's Don't Date Robots episode?  Check.

Hmm.  Not a lot of ground left to cover without getting obscure.  Of course, this isn't my first clangclang thread, so I could probably go obscure even for Fark.  Nothing from /co/ is likely to be too obscure, and /a/ is pretty much just as easy.  Maybe I could get a bit obscure with something /m/ but I'm sure there are some manly men here who'd spot it.  Which leaves /tg/ and the possibility of scarring someone.  I'm not sure it's worth the cost of victory.

Isn't it more likely we'll have full-out VR with electrodes and sensors and all before we have lifelike bots with AI?

The social upheaval that'll happen as a result of either is going to be soooo popcorn worthy.

Record someone in 360, record their voice, upload it, let the computer work out unknowns, tell it it what you want, boom, you're having sex with anyone. Your boss, the hot neighbor, the girl who said 'no'. Is it cheating to fark a program? Is it rape to fark a virtual recreation of the girl across the street?

Like I said, popcorn.

Millions of americans (and europeans) are already having sex with machines. Robots are the next logical step. No, not posting pics to prove my point.
