Sex robot unveiled in China
A Chinese company has unveiled a sex robot which it claims can recognise - and even chat to - its owner.
The 5ft 5ins robot has realistic skin and muscles made of silicon gel on an advanced medical metal skeleton.
Love Sex Company manager Li Jian said the £3,000 robots were aimed at well-paid executives who were too busy to meet real women.
Customers could choose the face and figure of their robot which would be programmed to recognise its owner's face and hold conversations with him, or her, in a choice of languages.
It can also be controlled remotely to take up different positions and some body parts can even shake, added Li.
The doll attracted crowds of curious onlookers when it was unveiled at a Sex Culture Exhibition in Xi'an, capital of western China's Shaanxi Province.
