Ananova somewhat depressingly reports that aircraft mechanic Michael Harriman, a German inventor from Nuremberg, claims to have created the world's most sophisticated robot sex doll. His sex androids have 'hearts' that beat harder during "sex"; they also breathe harder and have internal heaters to raise the body temperature - but their feet stay cold "just like in real life", Harriman says:
"They are almost impossible to distinguish from the real thing, but I am still developing improvements and I will only be happy when what I have is better than the real thing".
Harriman's dolls reportedly sell under the Andy brand name for £4,000 each for the basic model, with extra charges for adaptations like extra large breasts. The model can also be made to move by remote control, wiggling her hips under the bedclothes and making other suggestive movements - all at the touch of a button. Harriman said his design was an improvement on the popular 'real dolls' sold in the USA.

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
