Dr. Oz Meets the New Roxxxy Sex Robot

Monday, January 22nd, 2018

Douglas Hines, from True Companion, was very excited to present and unveil the new Roxxxy Sex Robot when he met with Dr. Oz!

Several of her new features include additional motion throughout her body (arms, hips thrust, torso, etc).

In addition, her Foundational AI now allows her to function without the internet as an option (that’s right – no wireless internet, no internet, no ipad, etc is necessary for normal operation!)

Robot sex doll

Friday, March 5th, 2010

World’s first sex robot The world’s first robot girlfriend – a life size rubber doll who can have sex with her owner and even talk about football – has been unveiled.

Dark-haired, negligee-clad ‘Roxxxy’ comes complete with artificial intelligence and flesh-like synthetic skin, reports the Daily Telegraph.

Standing 5ft 7ins tall, the doll comes with five “personalities”, and is “ready for action” her developers said.

Wild Wendy is outgoing and adventurous, Frigid Farrah is reserved and shy, there’s a young unnamed doll with a naive personality, Mature Martha is matriarchal and caring, while S & M Susan is geared for more adventurous types.

Coming with a laptop the doll, priced between £4,350 and £6,000, was unveiled at the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas at the weekend.

Douglas Hines, the robot’s football loving inventor, said the real aim was to make the doll someone the owner can talk to and relate to.

“She can’t vacuum, she can’t cook but she can do almost anything else if you know what I mean,” the New Jersey-based artificial intelligence engineer said.

Mr Hines, from TrueCompanion, said the doll could carry out simple conversations and was designed to “know exactly what you like”. “Sex only goes so far, then you want to be able to talk to the person,” he said. “She knows exactly what you like. If you like Porsches, she likes Porsches. If you like soccer, she likes soccer.”

The sex robot is available in Europe and the United States and will eventually be available all over the world. A male version of the doll, dubbed Rocky, is also planned.

Roxxxy the Sexbot

Friday, March 5th, 2010

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.

Roxxxy the sexy robot a world first, has personality and talks to you.

Roxxxy the sex robot had a coming out party on the weekend in Sin City.

In what is billed as a world first, a life-size robotic girlfriend complete with artificial intelligence and flesh-like synthetic skin was introduced to adoring fans at the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo.

“She can’t vacuum, she can’t cook but she can do almost anything else if you know what I mean,” TrueCompanion’s Douglas Hines said while introducing Roxxxy.

“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.”

Roxxxy stands five feet, seven inches tall, weighs 120 pounds, “has a full C cup and is ready for action,” according to Hines, who was an artificial intelligence engineer at Bell Labs before starting TrueCompanion.

The anatomically correct robot has an articulated skeleton that can move like a person but can’t walk or independently move its limbs.

Robotic movement is built into “the three inputs” and a mechanical heart that powers a liquid cooling system.

Roxxxy comes with five personalities. Wild Wendy is outgoing and adventurous, while Frigid Farrah is reserved and shy.

There is a young naive personality along with a Mature Martha that Hines described as having a “matriarchal kind of caring.” S & M Susan is geared for more adventurous types.

Aspiring partners can customize Roxxxy features, including race, hair colour and breast size. A male sex robot named “Rocky” is in development.

People ordering the robots online at truecompanion.comdetail their tastes and interests much like online dating sites but, here, the information is used to get the mechanical girlfriend in synch with her mate.

“She knows exactly what you like,” Hines said of Roxxxy, noting that Rocky will also come with personalities.

“If you like Porsches, she likes Porsches. If you like soccer, she likes soccer.”

Roxxxy will chat with her flesh-and-blood mate, and touching her elicits comments that vary according to personalities.

She is wirelessly linked to the Internet for software updates, technical support and to send her man email messages.

People can customize “true companion” personalities and then share the programs with others online on the company’s website, according to Hines.

“Just think about wife or girlfriend swapping without actually giving the person to someone else,” Hines said. “You can share the personality online.”

Inspiration for the sex robot sprang from the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, when planes crashed into the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon and an empty field in Pennsylvania.

“I had a friend who passed away in 9/11,” Hines said. “I promised myself I would create a program to store his personality, and that became the foundation for Roxxxy True Companion.”

Hines sees his creation not only as a recreational innovation but also as an outlet for the shy, people with sexual dysfunction, and those who want to experiment without risk.

Roxxxy versions are priced from $7,000 to $9,000 US, depending on features. The sex robot is available now in Europe and the U.S. and will eventually be available globally, Hines said.

A decade of techno-sex: Look how far we’ve come

Friday, March 5th, 2010

By John Ozimek

(Some of the links in this story may be NSFW.)

If the last decade has seen major changes to legal and social attitudes towards sex and sexuality, a question that will have commentators engaged for some time to come is what role has been played in such change by technology.

Does technology lead the way, encouraging and enabling behaviours that would have had a previous generation blushing? Or does it merely follow on, reflecting trends that are already deeply embedded in society?

Nannying is definitely the order of the day – unless you have some “unnatural” predilection for being treated like a naughty schoolboy, in which case stop it this instant, young man.

Richard Longhurst of online sex toy purveyor Lovehoney is highly upbeat about what has been happening to the market, arguing that it is beginning to show “dangerous signs of maturity”.

Durex has transformed itself from boring contraceptive manufacturer into a sex lifestyle brand. Ann Summers has gone from 12 stores in 1997 to 120 today. Longhurt’s own organisation has gone from a standing start to shipping more than a thousand orders a day.

In other words, sex and sexual gismology is now mainstream as never before. Of course, when it comes to the mainstream, a great deal of everyday product is now manufactured in China.

However, the West – and Japan – continue to make waves when it comes to innovation. One notable feature of the adult trade is the appearance of “inventors” – often, men in their middle age, with degrees in engineering and a burning desire to resolve some issue of erotic ergonomics. Hence the “sqweel”, a new and frankly scary multi-tongued rotatory device and the we-vibe, which allegedly sets up “an erotic carrier wave” between clit and g-spot.

While women are now increasingly regular visitors to sex shops as purchasers of sexual gadgetry, men have benefited greatly from developments through the decade which, in turn, reflect a new approach to male eroticism. At base, most sex toys are about masturbation. A decade ago, the majority of male sex toys appeared to be designed as though such a purpose was quite incidental, with the primary focus being the creation of inflatable female shapes that fooled no one.

For those who really do like the idea of simulating sex with a partner who lies there and does nothing, it is now possible to up the erotic ante (and the price) by investing in some form of RealDoll. Even there, the technology is moving on apace, with German company First Androids announcing, late last year, the creation of a realistic sex android that has a pulse and appears to breathe.

Earlier this year, it was the turn of American inventor Douglas Hines, of True Companion, to introduce to the world Roxxxy, billed as the first sex doll with artificial intelligence. A pulse vs intelligence? It is reported that the manufacturers of the German doll have already received four million advance orders at just over £2,000 apiece.

For those unable to afford the four or even five-figure ticket for such items, it is now possible to purchase an anatomically correct blow-up sheep for a fraction of the price.

Sexpot turns Sexbot in Sin City

Friday, March 5th, 2010


When in Vegas, it’s always nice to come across a friendly face, which is why TG Daily was delighted to find Roxxxy the sex robot at the Adult Entertainment Expo this weekend, slumped on a couch looking a little fatigued from all the action.

Apparently a first of its kind, Roxxxy is not just ye-run-of-the-mill blow up sex doll – oh no – she actually has personality, and can even answer back, thanks to having been created with Artificial Intelligence (AI).

The female five foot seven robot, which makers True Companion claim to be “anatomically consistent with a person” is apparently “always turned on and ready to talk or play,” with a feverishly pumping mechanical heart and a cooling system lest things get too hot to handle.

As well as having freakishly realistic feeling skin and a svelte 120 pound physique, Roxxxy can also hear you, speak to you, ‘feel’ your touch and “carry on a conversation.”

True Companion boasts that simply by touching Roxxxy, the sexbot will make reassuring and friendly remarks to her “mate” based on his pre-programmed likes and dislikes and kept up to date by a wireless internet connection which ensures software updates and tech support are beamed directly to her pretty little head.

Of course, she didn’t seem particularly talkative with us, but perhaps that was the result of a particularly long and grueling day of men groping at her realistic looking C cups.

True Companion also boasts that Roxxxy, who can’t walk or mechanically move her own limbs, can even “have an orgasm,” although we have a strong suspicion she might be faking it.

Like many women, Roxxxy comes with multiple personalities – five to be precise; reserved and shy Frigid Farrah, outgoing and adventurous Wild Wendy, mistress of pain and pleasure S&M Susan, barely 18 ‘Young’ and experienced teacher Mature Martha.

To customize their rubber lipped partner further, punters can also change the doll’s facial features, cup size, race and hair colour. And a male model – Rocky – is purportedly under development too, although we hope he does more than grunt like the Stallone character.

Roxxxy users can also “share” their loose limbed libido ladies with their friends, by swapping the personalities back and forth online. “You can let your friends use your girlfriends for an unlimited period of time or only for a few days (for example, only through Saturday night!)” says True Companion.

To get your paws on a Roxxxy gal, however, you’ll have to shell out between $7,000 – $9,000 depending on personal customisation, plus a monthly subscription fee.

The sexbot is currently heating up shelves in both Europe and the US, with True Companion noting she will be also become available in other parts of the world.

Roxxxy the sexbot proving a popular gal

Friday, March 5th, 2010



Last month when TG Daily met Roxxxy the sexbot at Vegas’ Adult Expo, we were impressed at the softness of her hypoallergenic silicone skin, her anatomical correctness and her vacant, yet alluring expression – not dissimilar to that of most celebrities.

It seems TG Daily was not alone in its admiration, however, as “thousands of men” have now apparently pre-ordered the sexbot, with creator, Douglas Hines, a former Bell Labs engineer, telling CNN “They’re like, ‘I can’t wait to meet her,’ ” adding “It’s almost like the anticipation of a first date.”

Yes, almost. Except you won’t have to ply her with alcohol to have your wicked way with her, and picking her up literally involves physically picking the bandy legged lass up off the couch.

But Hines remains convinced that Roxxxy will not disappoint. “There’s a tremendous need for this kind of product,” he said.

Judging by the list of punters signing up for Roxxxy on, the list is not restricted to desperate anorak wearing men either. Women are also apparently curious to try a romp with Roxxxy, although some apparently pose as sex therapists, purchasing the doll for their clients. Uh-huh. Sure.

What makes Roxxxy a robotic cut above the rest of her sex doll kind is the fact she actually possesses artificial intelligence, which is more than can be said for a lot of people these days.

Indeed, Roxxxy can not only hold semi realistic conversations with her partners on a variety of pre-programed topics, but she can also express “realistic emotions,” which she utters in a voice prerecorded by an anonymous, deep throated radio host.

Wondering how Roxxxy would understand words softly spoken to her by her devoted companion? Well, in much the same way as real women, Roxxxy’s internal computer converts her lover’s sweet nothings into text then, using pattern-recognition software, she runs them against a database which lists “hundreds of appropriate responses.”

“Uh-huh, yes dear, pass the salt,” – that’s three years of R&D right there.

Of course, if the spark goes out of your romantic robotic love life, you may want to check on Roxxxy’s internal battery, which can be recharged by plugging her into a wall socket. After which, we’re sure she’ll live up to the energizer bunny slogan, with her mechanical heart pounding.

And for those who want a marital experience, Hines has ensured that Roxxxy – who doesn’t move on her own but can be contorted into convenient positions – even snores. Although if it gets too irritating, you could always turn that feature off. Or smother her with a pillow.

TrueCompanion has international plans for Roxxxy in the works too, with Spanish and Japanese versions on the way, as well as a woman pleasing Rocky doll.

And although Roxxxy won’t be slumping on shelves for a few months to come, she has already been pre-ordered 4,000 times and has another 20,000 suitors lined up wanting to know more.

“There’s really nothing like this on the market,” said Hines, who reckons his creation will appeal to Shy, awkward or older men who aren’t confident enough to meet real women.

“Whenever she’s out in public, everyone wants to talk to her and pose for pictures. It’s so cute,” he concluded.

Yes, cute. In a supremely creepy kind of way.


Innovations in medicine and technology drive sex revolution

Friday, March 5th, 2010

Student Life (Independent newspaper of Washington University in St.Louis)

By:Gina Hyun

To some, she may be the woman of their dreams. At 5 feet 7 inches and 120 pounds, her physique is slender, and she has strawberry-blonde tresses that caress her flawlessly smooth complexion. She is amiable, understanding and enjoys intelligent conversation, but perhaps her most redeeming character is her sexual submissiveness.

Her name is Roxxxy, and she is the world’s premiere female sex robot.

“She doesn’t vacuum or cook, but she does almost everything else,” said her inventor, Douglas Hines, who made Roxxxy’s debut in January at the Adult Entertainment Expo (AEE) in Las Vegas, Nev.

The sex toy industry, globally worth more than $15 billion, has never seen anything like Roxxxy. There are blow-up dolls and other robots, but she is the closest replacement for true human companionship, and for $7,000 she will be someone’s friend forever.

Beneath her soft silicone skin, Roxxxy is enabled by a computer that features voice recognition and speech synthesis, among other software. The customer can even choose Roxxxy’s personality, as she comes preloaded with five different personalities like Rigid Farrah and Wild Wendy.

Hines, a computer scientist and former Bell Labs engineer, is a self-proclaimed happily married man from Lincoln Park, N.J., who merely wanted to find a marketable outlet for his artificial intelligence expertise.

Roxxxy will not be available for delivery for several months, but Hines is taking pre-orders through his Web site,, where 4,000 men have already signed up.

“They’re like, ‘I can’t wait to meet her,’” Hines said. “It’s almost like the anticipation of a first date.”

According to Grace Lee, spokeswoman for the AEE porn industry convention, Roxxxy garnered a lot of attention.

“Roxxxy generated a lot of buzz at AEE,” Lee said. “The prevailing sentiment of everyone I talked to about Roxxxy is ‘version 1.0,’ but people were fascinated by the concept, and it caused them to rethink the possibilities of ‘sex toys.’”

Roxxxy’s exterior is made from hypoallergenic silicone cast over a structural skeleton. Although she cannot move by herself, her body is pliable and can be bent into almost any position. Hines employed a female model to create Roxxxy’s anatomically perfect mold.

The robot functions on a rechargeable battery that lasts about three hours for every charge. The electrical cord plugs into her back.

Roxxxy is able to have conversations because when she “hears” someone speak, the computer converts the words to text and then cross-references it against a database of hundreds of fitting responses. Roxxxy’s selected response, which was prerecorded by an unidentified radio host, is then heard through a loudspeaker under her wig.

To date, Roxxxy is only available in English, but Hines is in the process of creating Japanese and Spanish versions in addition to a male version named Rocky. He can even personalize each Roxxxy for extra charge by recording specific dialogue as requested by the customer. In other words, one Roxxxy can be a movie buff while another is an expert in organic chemistry.

“Everything you say to her is processed. It’s very near real time, almost without delay,” Hines said of Roxxxy’s ability to talk. “To make it as realistic as possible, she has different dialogue at different times. She talks in her sleep.”

Roxxxy’s closest competitor in the U.S. is the Realdoll, which is cheaper (about $5,500) but mute. Hines believes that no other sex robot can offer the same emotional connection as a Roxxxy. His main target consumer group is socially awkward and older men who have trouble meeting women.

Although Roxxxy is a new product, the concept of wanting to increase sexual pleasure is not unique.

In the medical arena, vaginal cosmetic surgery to increase female pleasure is gaining popularity among women. Most of these surgeries are risky and uncovered by insurance, and have no published studies on their effectiveness, however.

One procedure is called Vaginal Rejuvenation and it comes with a price tag of approximately $7,000. It involves tightening of the vagina for older women who feel too loose to enjoy sex.

Another procedure is Labiaplasty, which costs around $6,000, and aims to correct the size or asymmetry of the inner or outer labia. Uneven lips are very common and normal, however.

Women can also have their hymen repaired for $5,000 to experience the feeling of losing virginity again.

With the advent of technological and medical innovation, attitudes toward sex in the 21st century are clearly far from what they used to be just five decades ago.
