Robot slideshow goes from from mopping floors to missionary position

18120_1_468c.jpg

Trendhunter‘s giant slideshow of “freaky” robots opens with Terminator sex. Though mostly free of such unpleasantness, it plunges through a bit of everything in robot-dom: pregnant robots, receptionist robots, insect robots, pet robots, the lot.

And yet so much of it detours to dark places, without even trying. It’s as if there was something unsettling about the entire idea of crafting machines able to express that which they cannot feel.

    Sadly this image is absent:

    This is still one of my own most powerful memory impressions of robots, erotic imagery, and science fiction.

    …So, is it machine oil or brake fluid that’s ejaculated?

    Just to be pernickety, I can’t abide inaccuracy. That’s reverse cowgirl, not missionary. What self-respecting missionary would position themselves like that?

    Dammit!

    That’s the only reason I came to the comments page. I defer to you, Mr Billington.
