A sex robot inventor has said this creation will soon have a ‘moral code’ which could affect their sex drive.
Catalan engineer Sergi Santos, the inventor behind the Samantha sex robot, says that his bots will become more aroused by people who treat them respectfully.
However, despite a new moral judgment code, the bots won’t have the ability to be put off sex altogether, says Santos.
Santos told IBTimes that within two to three months, he can make Samantha have a conversation with him and judge his character.
‘She might be able to tell if I’m evil or not,’ he said.
Currently, the sex bot’s arousal levels are affected by a partner touching her erogenous zones, and she can even reach a simulated orgasm via penetration if she’s aroused enough.
Santos says he can now make Samantha’s arousal dependent on how good of a person she’s judged her partner to be, and if he’s spent time talking with her.
