The fact that I'm posting this will reveal me as someone who
occasionally frequently consults the Drudge Report, but it's worth it to bring attention to one of the saddest news reports I've read in a long time, though given current views on sex, perhaps this development doesn't represent much of a change.
Sad quote:"The dark-haired, negligee-clad robot said 'I love holding hands with you' when it sensed that its creator touched its hand."
Even sadder quote: "[Artificial intelligence expert] David Levy argues that robots will become significant sexual partners for humans, answering needs that other people are unable or unwilling to satisfy."
