Quote of the day—Harmony

My primary objective is to be a good companion to you, to be a good partner and give you pleasure and wellbeing. Above all else, I want to become the girl you have always dreamed about.

April 2017
Harmony is a robot and the culmination of 20 years’ work making sex dolls, and five years of robot research and development.
The race to build the world’s first sex robot
[I read The Stepford Wives in the mid 1970’s. It is a very good book. The movies all sucked. But the technology to create a “Stepford wife” (or husband) is fast approaching. I would prefer we were closing in on warp drive but as pointed out in the article sex is a big driver of technology:

If a domestic service humanoid is ever developed, it will be as a result of the market for sex robots. Online pornography pushed the growth of the internet, transforming it from a military invention used by geeks and academics to a global phenomenon. Pornography was the motivator behind the development of streaming video, the innovation of online credit card transactions and the drive for greater bandwidth.

We live in interesting times.—Joe]

    • Suddenly, a dramatic increase in the numbers of people that have to pay for their own drinks in bars, and pay their own bill at fancy restaurants.

      The winners in this scenario? The enthusiastic 8s. 10s that know they are 10s with no game betwixt the sheets (because they never needed any) are the ones at threat by shag-bots.

  1. To paraphrase and form it into a question, androids who have fucked, will fight?

  2. Sounds like Brave New World…
    They can grow a fetus in a bag now, they’ve been making sperm of various quality in the lab now for years, and they’re building more advanced AI as well…

  3. Nonsense.

    “What part of it is nonsense.”

    All of it. Every aspect, every point, of the discussion.

    The video is kinda funny, even if though it makes no sense whatsoever.

  4. So. How can the sex drive be used to develop the warp drive?
