LOL. You're right, the porm industry often drives new AV technology. From what I've read, it was instrumental in the adoption of both DVD and, to a lesser extent, HDTV. Oh- and maybe the internet? wink.gif

Goes back even further, to the beginning of the VCR age. Porn is a great driver of innovation across many genres. You can bet that the initial impetus of development of true lifelike anamatronic androids will be the porn business.

Isn't the porn industry a multi-billion dollar one? I think it will impress more than a few.

I would think the development of true lifelike animatronic droids would spell the end of porn.

Be careful about using those two words so close together, Dr. Lar.  You may be called on to provide evidence that you qualify to connect them.

I think the "state of the art" is still the ol' reliable blow-up doll. wink.gif But in 20 more years of AI and robotic advancement, who knows? By then, I don't think I'll have much interest left. tongue.gif

She won't, of course. She makes millions off that face & body teasing just enough but not too much. But I can't think of a better model for the first realistic, anamatronic porn android. wink.gif

Maybe this thread should be merged with "The Big Bang Theory" thread?
