Each year the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas is the center of electronics world as the latest electronic toys are rolled out. For years the Adult Entertainment Expo (AEE) has been held at the same time and with the introduction the world’s first sex robot doll - the two events overlapped more than ever.

Many would say - "Only in Las Vegas" and that is certainly the case each January when the Adult Entertainment Expo (AEE), largest event for the adult entertainment industry is held alongside the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). For years, you could see the computer "geeks" line up when the female stars of the adult entertainment industry strutted through town.  But now it's getting hard to tell which announcements are coming from the CES and which from the AEE.

Roxxxy TrueCompanion, the sexy bot, is a completely anatomically correct and customizable companion (from features to hair color) that exhibits different personalities and responds to touch.  True Companion claims that the robot can be a life partner or mate for those who can’t find or don’t want the real thing. According to True Companion’s Web site, Roxxxy “can carry on a discussion and expresses her love to you and be your loving friend. She can talk to you, listen to you and feel your touch.” 

True Companion claims that this was a 2 1/2 year project that cost around 1 million dollars and the robot itself will cost from $7,000 to $9,000 USD.  The male version, Rocky TrueCompanion, available as a gay robot or a heterosexual robot is currently being developed.

When creator Douglas Hines demonstrated Rxxy, he joked that the demo might have been more appropriate for the adjacent Consumer Electronics Show.  "She has a computer, she has IO boards, she has servos, she has a battery pack, she has an accelerometer, she has touch sensors and pressure sensors throughout her body," Hines said. "She's anatomically consistent with a real person. She has three inputs so what you could think of with a woman, she could do."

Depending on your mood, you can assign the robot different personalities such as Frigid Farrah or Mature Martha, who will respond differently based on the personality you choose. For example, if you hold Mature Martha’s hand, she may say “I love holding hands,” whereas if you touch Frigid Farrah she may say “What are you going to do with that hand?”
