Samantha – The Sex Robot definitely needs no introduction. She kind of became a celebrity now, but for those who don’t know about her – Samantha is 5’4″, AI sex bot and is the seventh model of her type.
She has blond hair, human-like skin, breasts and “the female genitals down below”. She is an AI bot with piercing green eyes, and a fully functional vagina. There are ten sensors embedded in her body, including one that creates an interactive G spot and can simulate an orgasm if Samantha is in the mood.
Her functionality can also be set to different modes such as family, romantic, animals and philosophy. She can apparently quote philosophers like Hegel on demand. She can also be set to “nice sex”, “sex”, and “hard sex” modes, too.
Samantha has a “brain memory” – stored on an SD card in a computer located in her head. She is much more than a sex robot, but is an AI. Although she can operate as a sex robot, she is much more than that. She can talk and reacts to human touch. She moans when someone massages her breasts, for example.
Samantha made her TV appearance, taking a seat on the famous This Morning couch with Holly and Phil with her co inventor Arran squire.
Roboticist Dr Sergi Santos – creator of Samantha took his ‘intelligent’ sex doll Samantha to the Arts Electronica Festival in Linz, but said the experience proved a huge letdown.
Santos said that men acted like “barbarians”, and that he had to have her sent back to Barcelona in a package for repairs and cleaning after she was groped by mobs in Barcelona. On an outing in a local mall, Santos says men aggressively groped Samantha’s head and breasts, causing more damage.
“She is not a f*cking toy,” Santos responded when asked about the incident. He complained that his creation had not yet been treated correctly when in public. “People can be bad. Because they did not understand the technology and did not have to pay for it.”
Co-creator Arran Lee Squire said he was stunned by the rough treatment the robot suffered at the hands of ‘over-excited’ punters.
“When we got here back it was clear she had been roughly treated which is not how she should be handled, she should be treated with respect.
“There was damage to the neck and mouth, my business partner described these people as ‘barbarians’. This is not how she should be treated, she has sensors all over her body and needs a gentle touch.
“I think people have just become over-excited and treated her like a sex doll, she isn’t a sex doll, she is a robot with AI.
“We have been able to repair her so she is okay.”
