  • I'd buy one.

  • I think the commentators in the video get it right. We should be trying to help people even if it may seem unacceptable. A robot is better than a child.

  • Just don't program the robot with the ability to feel pain or get scarred for life from molestation. Though there are other options. There are adults with normal mental functioning but whose bodies physically look more like children because of disorders. There you go. If you are attracted to children I suggest you date those adults. Problem solved.

  • Offenders could be drawn into registering with Social Services & the Police in return for this product. The robot could then record their actions and the data could be used to risk profile them. How long would it take though before these mechanical victims were available generally? They would no doubt increase offending rates as they could be used to live out fantasies that a human may not comply with enabling the fantasy to evolve faster. Would be the same for adult machines too, fantasies would I'm sure get alot darker if there is no law to stop simulated extreme bondage etc. Interesting but very creepy topic...

Wait till we create an actual holodeck then we will see the weird stuff people want to do coming to life.

@ Kreakin "no doubt" People overuse that phrase. What you mean is "in my opinion" but you hope people will read your opinion and the words "no doubt" will just make the person agree with your opinion automatically. It's an abuse of the English language. Why wouldn't robots suffice for someone wanting to stay on the right side of the law? In time you will be able to make a robot for anything and make them look and feel human. And if it's with a robot and doesn't victimize humans then good that will keep everyone safe. As for registering with the police and social services. No need. If the person hasn't committed a crime they should be able to just get themselves a robot. Robots aren't people. Prosecuting someone for molesting a robot would be like prosecuting someone for molesting a toaster. That is unless we make a robot that can think and feel and conceptualize meaning. There could be some threshold where a robot becomes just a silicon-based being that should have rights. But we're way far away from producing anything like that.

Drawing or creating photoshop images could be argued to not harm anyone and keep people on the right side of the law, it is however indicative of a certain inclination should you create such images. They do also cause harm and promote abuse, they are illegal. This robot child would fall into the same category? IMHO :)

@ Kreakin According to the case Free Speech Coalition v. Reno "factual studies that establish the link between computer-generated child pornography and the subsequent sexual abuse of children apparently do not yet exist." It's not established in science that fantasy that doesn't involve real children leads to actual child abuse. Regardless the word "cause" is too strong. Child abuse is caused by a person making a choice to abuse children. At most the robot could influence people into being more likely to make such a choice (or prevent it by providing a victim-free outlet, science has yet to ascertain). The use of the word "cause" makes it sound like they get turned into zombies and then must molest children even if they don't want to. It's a real concern if these things increase the chance of someone choosing to molest but the wording of your language has the effect (which I can tell is unintentional) of denying that the child molesters themselves are responsible for their actions.
