Campaign to ban the development of sex robots was launched. Campaign leader Dr Kathleen Richardson says that the technology for such thing is unnecessary, undesirable and disturbing.
Dr Richardson, a robot ethicist at De Montfort University in Leicester, wants to raise awareness of the issue and persuade those developing sex robots to rethink how their technology is used.
On the other hand, chief executive Douglas Hines of True Companion, developer of Roxxxy “the world’s first sex robot,” come to defense saying:
“We are not supplanting the wife or trying to replace a girlfriend. This is a solution for people who are between relationships or someone who has lost a spouse.
