Robot Sex Touts!

The city government in Osaka prohibited touts for other soliciting people. It is prohibited by law to lure people towards prostitutes or other illicit sexual activity. So what do the owners of the sex clubs do? Create Robot Touts of course!

NYU Student Invents Girlfriend

I should have figured that it would not be long before someone would come up with this idea. Here is the complete story and the original link.

You work late. Like, every night. You probably screwed up your last steady relationship, and, well, maybe there’s no one to curl up next to in bed when you stumble in the door at night. Drew Burrows knows the feeling. “I’m in this grad program right now, and it’s totally consuming,” he said. “I come home every night to an empty bed.” So Burrows, 28, engineered (literally) a solution, which he unveiled to the public last night at NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program Spring Show at Tisch School of the Arts.

It’s simple to behold — a single mattress, tucked into a dark, curtained back room of the showcase space. On it: a lithe brunette. She’s perfectly quiet, but once you sit or lie down, she responds to your every move. Lie on your back, she snuggles up right next to you in a log position. Curl up in the fetal position, she spoons. The only hitch: She’s 2-D. “Yeah, you can’t feel the girl. That’s the thing,” Burrows explained as he demonstrated his invention, an “infrared sensitive” light projection (meaning it reacts, and the projected woman moves, based on an infrared sensor) called INBED. “Still, it’s so nice if you’re tired and worn out to have someone to curl up with.”

As for satisfying those not-so-innocent late-night desires, this lady adheres to her role as steady girlfriend. Give her kiss on the check and she rolls over and buries her face in the pillow. And yes, she stays fully clothed at all times. Nonetheless, Burrows suggests his new alternative to a full-body pillow or (ugh) blow-up doll could provide late-night comfort for traders, lawyers, or any other single guy in Manhattan who simply works too hard to keep a girlfriend. Speaking of, how long has Burrows been single?

“Long enough to come up with this idea,” he sighed. —Christine Lagorio

You know Distance Learning but Distance Sex anyone?

First it was distance learning and soon there will be distance sex or at least that’s the idea if Dominic Choy has her way. Here is New Scientist story on this theme.

You’ve heard of distance learning. Now it looks like distance sex is on the way. Dominic Choy of Cammeray, New South Wales, wants to replace real sex with an online robotic experience. He proposes a lifelike flexible mannequin covered with imitation skin (WO 0059581). Servo motors move its limbs and other body parts in response to control signals both from the Internet and from touch and sound sensors on its body. Two people with matching mannequins connect over the Internet, wearing virtual-reality visors so they can see and hear each other. Couples can get together from opposite ends of the Earth—or they could program the system so that one participant resembles their partner’s favourite celebrity.

My Living Doll

Back in the 1960s there was a TV show, My Living Doll, about a psychologist who takes care of a sexy female robot Rhonda, played by Julie Newmar. The gynoid is created by a military scientist Dr. Miller who gets transferred to Pakistan but before leaving he gives the gynoid to his friend Bob Macdonald whose Job is to educate the female robot. Bob has to do this while maintaining secrecy regarding the identity of the robot and also making sure that his neighbor keep away from her. Wikipedia notes that “According to The Random House Historical Dictionary of American Slang, My Living Doll is the source of the science fiction phrase “Does not compute” in popular culture.” This was one of the earliest shows which (implicitly) explored theme of sexuality between a gynoid and humans. The show lasted only one season although it seemed to have a lot going for it. The main problem was that it was up against Bonanza which had the same timeslot. In a way number six of Battlestar Galactica is the descendant of Rhonda, metaphorically speaking of course.

First Word

The blog has its origins in my interest in the current and future possibilities of amicable relationships between machines (specifically robots) and humans. Thus the focus is not on the possibility of sex between humans and robots but rather on the possibility affection between the two. While David Levy has posited the possibility of love, sex and even marriage between humans and robots in the not so distant future, we at “Till Malfunction Do Us Part” are a little more cautious regarding love and marriage and would like to wait and see technology develop a bit more before making any predictions about the future. Thus we will explore subjects like how people can form bonds between their robotic pets, the possibility of sex with human like robots and comment on the blurring line between reality and possibility. So stay tuned as we explore this interesting and fascinating topic. Suggestion regarding stories are encouraged. Welcome to the blog carbon based bi-pedal mammals!
