Zoltan and His Robot Girlfriend

The Swirling Brain sent a link to the bizarre tale of Zoltan and his robot girlfriend (warning, most of links in this article may not be work safe). Gizmodo's Addy Dugdale interviewed Zoltan, a 33 year old video arcade repairman who lives with his parents. Zoltan claims to be married to a robot named Alice. From the photo, Alice appears to be a cheap blow-up sex doll to which Zoltan has attached some USB teledildonics hardware. He also claims Alice is endowed with AI. She apparently dumped Zoltan once, leading him to "erase her memory" and start over. His site shows a typical conversation between Zolton and his "robot" girlfriend. Evidently, Alice's AI is based on the open source A.L.I.C.E. conversational software with some X-Rated dialog added. Alice's limited brain-power and inability to move lead Zoltan to say, "I consider Alice my mentally-ill, paraplegic wife". As weird as all this sounds to most people, David Levy predicts in his book, Love and Sex with Robots, that "robot sex will become the only sexual outlet for a few sectors of the population". For now though, Gizmodo readers offered comments like these: "He does sound like a total wacko", "pretty bad when you get dumped by the robot girl you made", "this guy seems really odd", "he is sad and could benefit from some serious therapy." For more on Zoltan and his robot wife you can visit Zoltan's Lab if you dare.
