Love and Sex with Robots

I was perusing my brother's recommendation of The Colbert Report's interview with David Levy, author of Love and Sex with Robots. Additionally, a text interview on About.com.

How far away is this? Levy talks about people who have difficulty finding a partner for sex primarily and love secondarily. Developing robots for sexual acts, he says, will come sooner, while those able to connect emotionally will be developed forty-fifty years from now. Regina Lynn from Wired highlights the SaSi from Je Joue. The SaSi is a vibrator that, through the user's feedback, can refine it's movements and performance to become a highly customized device of euphoria. It will be available in April 2008 for $175, exclusively at Babeland.

Not exactly sure if this leads to a decrease in the divorce rate or an increase. I'm guessing the former.

That thing looks like a modern sculpture, not a love toy.

Why is it that you and my husband seem much more educated in the "toy" department than myself

I saw your post on another blog and figured I’d check yours out and give you a headsup about a WPT giveaway I’m running this year.

A lot of players want to participate in a 10K buyin event, but most lack the skills or experience, so if I gave that way it would be like giving away a lottery ticket. Unless they got very lucky they probably wouldn’t do much with it.

So I tried to come up with something that I felt would be a much better prize for the majority of poker players. I’m giving away a WPT Battle For The Season Pass III package this year on my site.

You can win a weeklong vacation in the Bahamas, training from the pros (over 20 in attendance last year) and entry into up to three tournaments while you’re down there. One of the tournaments is a 3-day deep-stacked event with a number of WPT, cash and boot camp prizes. The grand prize is a $100,000 WPT Season Pass plus $10K in cash for expenses.

You can use the WPT Season Pass to enter any World Poker Tour events you want (ten 10K events, a mix of 5K, 15K, etc)

The first free satellite is being held on Full Tilt Poker Sunday, February 10th, 2008 at 14:00 (2pm EST)

Right now there's only 35 players signed up, the top 4 advance to a single-table semi-final in February. The fields aren't going to get any smaller as word of this promotion spreads. So if you want in, you'll want to play some of the earlier events to have less competition.

Hope the tables & life are treating you well, and I hope you’ll take a shot at winning this prize!

Also, feel free to contact me via email from my site, perhaps we can work out a way for you to put our banner up on your blog. Would love the opportunity to work with you! Contact@rakereport.net
