Beyond Sex Robots: Fact vs. Fiction



Engadget Editor-in-Chief Christopher Trout dives head first into the hysteria surrounding the world’s first sex robot to draw a hard line between fact and fiction. He’ll cross the globe to talk to the people who have dedicated their lives to the study and production of humanoid lovers, and take Harmony and her sex robot siblings out of the lab for a real-world night on the town.

    Instead of turning people into things (slavery), we are now trying to change things into people (anthropomorphism).

    Robots cannot be compared to a slave …wht the he'll is she talking about …a human that had feeling , emotions cannot compare to a metal box you can turn on and off

    They need a robot that can cook , clean ..without nagging

  6. Primal Mgtow June 14, 2018 at 6:58 pm

    If you build it they will come

    Again and again and again

    It wont take off because they cant walk or stand on their own and it's just a slightly more sophisticated Furby. Cleaning an onahole is such a chore imagine cleaning up that one.

    Cool video Engadget! Feels like we are slowly getting over some of our sexual hangups. I think the future is going to scare the hell out of some people.

  10. Just Red June 14, 2018 at 6:58 pm

    The future looks bright boys!

    Why do they keep on bringing on Kathleen Richardson on for this stuff? She has absolutely nothing to add to the conversation.

    The research she points to has all been thoroughly discredited and debunked by newer papers. The only argument she can make is our falling birth-rate… But that is more closely correlated with women gaining rights.

    Repeal the 19th, and send the women back to the kitchen! By giving young men another outlet for their lusts, we can prevent fatherless children being born in wedlock.

    why not use wavenet to make the talking feel more realistic

  15. FUNNYSSPLYTS June 14, 2018 at 6:58 pm

  16. D M June 14, 2018 at 6:58 pm

    Better than the real thing?

  17. Redshift1360 June 14, 2018 at 6:58 pm

    I can't believe how many luddites there are in our supposedly advanced culture. Overreact much? It's just a chatbot running a mechanical head, stuck to a rubber doll and everyone suddenly thinks we live in Westworld.

    Maytag washing machine

  19. ro pro June 14, 2018 at 6:58 pm

    Lol, why are over-weight, middle-aged women such buzzkills. Oh wait… right, that's why.

  20. Bushido June 14, 2018 at 6:58 pm

    This reminds me of Detroit: Become Human so much its crazy.

  21. Mikael Benjamínsson June 14, 2018 at 6:58 pm

    but if you have sex with a robot you will not make a baby/ and life will be no more if we all have sex with robots well good bye all life

  22. Catch Dis L June 14, 2018 at 6:58 pm

    Nice video. 👌

  31. Hanchao Xu June 14, 2018 at 6:58 pm

    Great video! Comprehensive and beautiful. It is worthy to see again several years later.

  32. ウチハサスケ June 14, 2018 at 6:58 pm

    With Divorce rates going up all over the world thanks to FEMINAZISMS theirs a huge market for real life anime girlfriends

  33. 0redzz0 June 14, 2018 at 6:58 pm

    With the rise of friendzoning. These robots are a must for guys.

  34. YTSliv June 14, 2018 at 6:58 pm

    I do believe it would never come, and there will be entertainment that's more worth while than a sex robot.
    The fact people seek and function within a human-ish interaction, not necessarily produced by actual flesh. You never see Siri as a face, and you will never need or want Siri to visually look like a Human, they are just portrayed in movies or fiction.
    Sex is primal and raw, and we, are not building a real human, despite survived thousands of years, are not physically optimal devices, like they literally stop functioning every 80-100years.
    The sex tech future will be focusing on the experience, the companionship rather than the visual presentations.

    This could be useful for astronauts on interplanetary travel

  36. Adreno Erin June 14, 2018 at 6:58 pm

    not age restricted? interesting alogrithm

  37. Sonal Saha June 14, 2018 at 6:58 pm

    Felt like the starting of WEST WORLD

  38. Elapsed Beats June 14, 2018 at 6:58 pm

    Your life has to be pretty sad to want or need a sex robot. If your argument is that they react to human feelings, and listen to what you have to say, then just meet a real person. I don't see a need for this except for people with severe agoraphobia.

  39. Arvin Medina June 14, 2018 at 6:58 pm

    I'm cyuming baby…

  40. Omelas June 14, 2018 at 6:58 pm
