Lovebots to reach into chest and rip out hearts

What? People falling in love with robots? I don’t know which is more troubling, terminators killing us or people having sex with robots. Both equally disturbing and creepy. Remember that Star Trek: The Next  Generation episode where Tasha and Data get it on? Eeww, especially since she was a bit man-ish. Although Fembots from Austin Powers might be tempting, so long as they don’t try kill me with their machine gun jubblies (can I order one without the guns?). Even the sexy Cylons from Battlestar Galactica warrant consideration. Or how about a Buffybot?

Although you have to admit, robot on robot action is hot! (just kidding, geez can’t you spot a joke?)

“That day is imminent, Levy writes, especially the sex part. By the middle of this century, he predicts, “love with robots will be as normal as love with other humans, while the number of sexual acts and lovemaking positions commonly practiced between humans will be extended, as robots teach more than is in all of the world’s published sex manuals combined.”

If this seems a bit much, hang on. Levy, an expert on artificial intelligence and the author of “Robots Unlimited,” builds his case gradually. He begins with what scientists know about why humans fall in love with other humans. There are 10 factors, he writes, including mystery, reciprocal liking, and readiness to enter a relationship. Why can’t these factors apply to robots, too? Even something as apparently human as “reciprocal liking” can be programmed into a robot’s behavior, and if it acts as if it likes you that’s often all that matters.” (link)
