Roxxxy the Sexbot

True Companion’s Roxxxy the Sexbot – we just read off the cue cards here, folks — is a 120-pound, 5-foot, 7-inch mechanical with an anatomically-accurate mechanical skeleton hidden underneath real-feeling “flesh,” according to its maker.

“No matter how real she may feel, I can’t shake the thought that she’s a cross between Joan Jett and Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, with a dash of Chrissy Hynde of the Pretenders thrown in for good measure,” says industry observer Brennon Slattery. Obviously she’s got your basic Rock Slut appeal.

Roxxxy debuted at the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas, yet another event we were not invited to, and at the show, Slattery says, “had a laptop plugged into her back.” No, sorry, we don’t have any pictures. We’ve seen the pictures, and trust us, actually seeing the robot makes it all just that much more pathetic.

But you’ll be glad to know she’s also Wi-Fi capable, and “her little quirks, like the way she holds your hand, can be shared with other sexbot owners through the True Companion Web site.”

Roxxxy has attitude, Slattery reports, “with several personality types you can elicit at the touch of a button: “Frigid Farrah is reserved and a bit chilly; Wild Wendy lives up to her name; S&M Susan, well, you know; and Mature Martha has that experienced thing goin’ on.”

Owners can also change Roxxxy’s hair color, cup size, race, and other characteristics until they get that perfect creature, Slattery reports, adding in the key observation: “However, you cannot take away the cold, dead stare.”

Her creators claim the sex aspect is mere marketing, that Roxxxy is “all about companionship,” probably in much the same way Las Vegas claims it’s all about family entertainment, not gambling, and guys say they read Playboy for the articles.

Slattery says Roxxxy’s built with technology that allows her to carry out simple conversations, and we can believe she would certainly be a more sprightly conversationalist than the majority of live women the sort of men who would fancy Roxxxy are used to.

Douglas Hines, the robot’s inventor, insists that “She’s a companion. She has a personality. She hears you. She listens to you. She speaks. She feels your touch. She goes to sleep. We are trying to replicate a personality of a person.”

Prices will hover around $7,000 to $9,000, depending on “the level of customization,” Slattery says.
