Sex Robots May Be So Good in Bed They'll Ruin Civilization as We Know It

It seems like scientists have been working tirelessly this year to reduce human interaction in almost everything we do, from pizza delivery to Uber rides, and now even realistic sex machines aren't far from becoming a reality. But unfortunately experts in the robosex industry have some fears that banging bots will be so good that it'll ruin people's lives, the Daily Star reports.

Robotics experts and sex therapists are worried that a future of Ex Machina–style humanoid fuckbots ready and willing to dote on our every need could turn the masses into sex-addicted maniacs—people may find it difficult to stop taking part in the high-tech carnal pleasure palace and actually detach from the dolls.

"Sexbots would always be available and could never say no, so addictions would be easy to feed," Joel Snell, a research fellow at Kirkwood College, told the Daily Star. "People may become obsessed by their ever faithful, ever pleasing sex robot lovers. People will rearrange their lives to accommodate their addictions."

It seems a little far out to imagine that sticking your junk into an incredibly elaborate masturbation machine will actually be detrimental to society on a large scale, but Snell might have a point.

"Robotic sex may become better than human sex," he added. "Like many other technologies that have replaced human endeavors, robots could surpass human technique."

Nope, can't say that I have.
Instead of having to plan and save for your next vacation, why not work on creating a life you don't feel the need to escape from...

I suspect putin and trump have something to do with this
that's great. people are stupid.

The mah-fuckin future!!! Now you can connect the dots with that weird, uninformative star trek HP commercial.

HP will absolutely fold if they do not get this to work. But holy shit if they do, market it right, they are potentially gonna change the fucking world of computing! I'm so excited! By that time I hope to have my degree and able to work on devices/servers made with this new technology.
So unfortunately, it looks like HP has killed this idea.

They're shifting their focus on something else that's pretty rad, but not AS cool.

"Researchers in Italy have developed a technique that promises to upend the age-old process of brewing beer.

The key is cavitation—the formation and collapse of tiny bubbles in a liquid. They’re created as a rotating object like a propeller moves through the liquid, creating a wave of low pressure at the tips. At the most extreme points in that low pressure, the liquid boils, creating small bubbles that soon collapse in a burst of heat and pressure. It’s that combination that could eliminate the need for an entire step of the brewing process."

Candy Crush Is Going to Be an Actual Show on Television
Thanks to CBS

Your former mobile phone addiction is becoming a large-scale live-action CBS game show. The broadcaster has greenlit an upcoming series based on Candy Crush from Lionsgate and mobile gaming company King.

“We are huge fans of Candy Crush and, like so many others, we know the ‘rush’ of advancing to the next level of the game,” said Glenn Geller, President, CBS Entertainment. “We’re excited to work with Lionsgate and King to adapt one of the world’s most popular and entertaining game franchises for television and make it available to its massive, passionate fan base who can watch and play along at home.”

The show will be produced by Matt Kunitz, who previously made large-scale obstacle shows like ABC’s Wipeout and NBC’s Fear Factor.

“The Candy Crush franchise lends itself perfectly to the kind of larger-than-life, physical game shows that I love to produce and CBS is the perfect home for it,” Kunitz said. “As a Candy Crush Saga player myself, I am excited to amp up the action and visuals in our huge Candy Crush Arena.”’

Candy Crush was launched in 2012 and became a pop culture sensation, recently reaching 1 trillion games played. It’s still played heavily – last month saw 18 billion game rounds played around the world, according to King.

Added King’s Chief Creative Officer Sebastian Knutsson: “The Candy Crush franchise has been loved by players around the world on mobile so it’s very exciting to be working with Matt and the team to bring the fun and challenge of the Candy Crushgames to television. We hope our players will be entertained by what is set to be a high-energy, challenging game show.”

There are no photos or air date yet for the series.

I have not held back saying "what I will" about them.
I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

"I used to be 'with it', but then they changed what 'it' was and now what I'm with isn't 'it' and what's 'it' seems weird and scary to me"
You haven't lived until you've had a robot shart in your ear and followed along in the live setlist thread while it happens. 
Mister Charlie told you so.
