Scientists feel a sexual spark

The greatest minds in the sex robot business are set to come together (so to speak) at the industry’s first international conference next month.
The International Congress on Love and Sex with Robots will be held on December 19-20 in London with sessions on titillating techno topics such as humanoid sex-bots, teledildonics (virtual sex toys), intelligent electronic sex hardware and robotic emotions.
“Our research aims to carve a new narrative, moving away from sex robots purely defined as machines used as sex objects, as substitutes for human partners, made by men, for men,” said woman lecturer Kate Devlin.
