Roxxxy the US$7,000 companion/sex robot (NSFW)

When it comes to technology, the sex industry is no laggard, and as robotics become more human-like in their appearance and abilities, US-based company TrueCompany is poised to launch Roxxxy – the world’s first "sex robot" that has many more capabilities than your average sex doll. Apart from having better defined physical features than previous dolls, Roxxxy has been programmed with her own personality and her manufacturers say she can listen, talk, carry on a conversation, feel your touch and respond to it, as well as move her private areas inside when she is being “utilized” to deliver an unforgettable erotic experience. There are even plans for a male version - Rocky the Robot.Read More

Now we have further irrefutable proof of that. The incredible success of the boyfriend arm pillow has spawned what the Japanese manufacturers are hoping will be the male equivalent – the girlfriend lap pillow.
