The world's first robotic girlfriend has hit the market.
We've been hearing a lot about robotic arms
on the space shuttle, as well as robotic snakes
and robotic birds and bugs
. But now we're hearing about a robot worthy of being considered a companion.
A New Jersey-based company, TrueCompanion.com, has unveiled its talking robotic girlfriend
. This is no life-size doll. Roxxxy the robot is designed with artificial intelligence and lifelike synthetic skin. At 5 feet, 7 inches tall, the robot can't walk or move its arms and legs, but it is designed to not only talk but carry on a conversation.
