These Chinese Sex Robots Are Equipped With Artificial Intelligence

Shenzhen Atall Intelligent Robot Technology is one of China’s leading companies for robots equipped with AI (artificial intelligence). Among the company’s various AI robot products, its best-selling is an AI sex robot named Emma.

The multi-functional machine is linked to the internet and Android operating system and features high stimulation capabilities. Sex robots have soft and elastic skin made of modified thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) material, with less oil content and no smell. Its temperature adjustment is set to 37 C to resemble a human’s. Safety issues are managed with anti-electric shock, anti-fire and anti-explosion measures. And the addition of body sensors help make sex robots feel more like a human.

But a semblance of authenticity doesn’t come cheap, and Emma’s online retail price is about 20,000 RMB ($3,136) with most customers being men aged 40-50. Most clients are from Europe and the United States. There is also high interest for sex robots in the Middle East but importing them and sex toys into these countries is prohibited. It’s a similar situation with Brazil, Chile and Argentina along with Russia and Philippines – where customs clearance for the robots is problematic.

Male sex robots are also on the market but the sales volume is nine times lower compared to the female models. However, the market is constantly changing, and in recent years demand for male sex robots has been increasing, such as in Korea and Thailand. Shenzhen Atall also sells child-size AI sex robots, both male and female and the biggest market for them is the US and Canada.

Chen, because of his busy pharmaceutical sales job and the travel it involves, has no time for a girlfriend. Chinese girls all want to talk about marriage after the second date and he is not interested in that for now, he said. His robot takes care of all of his needs, but he would like the software to be improved so communication is better and more meaningful. Cleaning the robot can be a chore because its skin is very fragile and gets dirty easily, he said. (Photo by Aleksandar Plavevski/EPA/EFE)

え?火星の火山が噴火してる?欧州宇宙機関(ESA)が公開した最近の写真に映し出されていた煙のような謎の影

no title


 火星に多くの火山が存在する。中には太陽系最大級とも言われる、高さ25km、幅600km以上の「オリンポス山」がある。

 かつて火星は火山の噴火によって噴出した地下水が河川を作り、平原に流れ込んで海が生まれた可能性があるとされているが、数百万年、一説には数千万年以上、もう長いこと噴火は起きていないはずだ。

 ところが欧州宇宙機関(ESA)が、2018年9月5日と、同10月20日に公開した写真には、まるで噴火しているかのような煙の流れのようなものが写っていたのだ。

 その位置から推測するとアルシア山である可能性が高いという。
