The case for artificial intelligence has been in the making for roughly 30 years. Small robots are available for purchase for a myriad of reasons. Some robots help amputees function, some clean your house, and some even wash your car.
Although the robots being manufactured today are a little more sophisticated than, say, the maid robot in Rocky V, the idea is pretty much the same. We, as a species, wish to put as much work load on automated machines as possible. The problem with automated machines, is the lack of “common sense.” Any scientist will explain that that is the hardest part of manufacturing these robots. There is no “human” factor available for critical thinking rationale.
Scientists in Switzerland at the Academy of Scientific Works are looking to change that.
Dr. Robert Greutsche and his team have developed a robot that satisfies the most basic and carnal of desires.
The new prototype not only provides intimate satisfaction for both males and females, it also reads emotion and exhibits responses. The Sexbot 3000 boasts the ability to flirt, hold conversation in the bedroom on 3 different settings, and even hold the client during what’s referred to as “afterglow.”
Beta testing has been wildly successful, with a 72% approval by males, and 76% approval by females. The sexual drive of these Sexbot 3000 is manually inputted by the user and is adjustable throughout the trial period. Unwelcomed, sometimes forceful experiences were only reported in 30 cases and almost 40% of cumulative users would recommend to a friend.
The Sexbot 3000 models are self-cleaning, an improvement over the 2400 model, and do not feature an off button. Dr Greutsche explains that the absence of an off button creates something more than a Sexbot 3000. It creates a friend. A companion. The Sexbot 3000 builds trust and makes 82% of its users feel a greater self worth after 3 months of use.
“Those are some staggering percentages,” Dr. Greutsche said in an interview, “if I were to pair you with a random female or male, what are the chances they’d be able to satisfy you in a way you were pleased?”
He explains that the numbers may not be as close to 100% as his team may have liked, but in these intimate settings, and with the variation buttons that most don’t adjust, the numbers are actually quite remarkable. “Maybe one person switches to level 3 dirty talk, but doesn’t understand what level 3 dirty talk really is,” he justifies, “or maybe a woman wants sex 4 times a day for 3 weeks and then doesn’t want to be touched. This is a robot. A real robot with real needs. You can’t expect it to just adjust to your needs. That’s the reason behind the handful or so ‘rape’ scenarios and quite frankly, I don’t believe them even relevant to the conversation.”
The prototype will be available in the coming weeks for the public to purchase. Initial bids start at $15,000 for a male bot and $45,000 for a female.
