She looks human, feels human and even sounds human (well - ish) but she’s anything but real. Meet Samantha the sex robot - developed with artificial intelligence, which allows her to respond to different scenarios, designed to give the users a very unique experience. She even features a fully functional g-spot.
The sex-aid industry in the UK is estimated to be worth £250 million pounds a year and with business clearly booming it seems there's no end to inventors and investors creativity. But is Samantha a step too far? Or is she no different to purchasing a raunchy toy at a party?
We meet one of her creators Arran Lee Wright - who has given Samantha several test runs himself. We’re also joined by psychologist Emma Kenny, who believes robots like Samantha could be the death of healthy human relationships.
