Yes, you can have sex with it, although its inventor, Trung Le, claims he doesn't. Here are Le's other goals for Aiko:
- Facial Expressions
- Make tea and coffee
- Feed me sushi
- Make simple breakfast: eggs and bacon
- If I lie my head down on Aiko lap, have her clean my ears with a Q-tip.
- Ability to massage my shoulders and neck.
- Able to do print and write
- Clean the windows
- Dust the shelves
- Clean my toilet. (I hate cleaning the bathroom, might as well have someone else do it for me)
So why did this bot have to be female? Is it just soooo natural that a
robot that feels pain, hates being groped (WTF?), and does domestic
chores will be female, that the inventor never questioned it? Would a
male version have its pain sensors dialed down, or respond differently
to having its package grabbed? Will there be a male verison?
And why does an Asian female (potential) sexbot have to have a Japanese name, even when invented by a Vietnamese? His online resume lists one of his interests as "Drawing and painting Japanese style animation." Was he motivated more by tentacle porn than scientific inquiry?
Oh my god, I have to go take a shower now.
