The days of hiding a blow-up doll in a dark closet are over, and with companies like PornHub hitting the headlines on a frequent basis, we have entered an era of people being a lot more comfortable with talking about jerking-off. In fact people are now willing to spend real money on masturbation, without the fear of shaming.
This means the technology being developed to touch your penis, is moving faster than ever.
But that may not be a good thing.
According to cyber-security scientist Dr. Nick Patterson, we are in danger of these newly developed sex-robots being used to physically hurt people. Maybe even kill people.
But before you call bullshit, keep in mind that we aren’t talking about A.I. We are talking about these robots being accessed by flesh-and-blood hackers.
You see even a sex robot needs an operating system. And many of these bots have an OS that is incredibly simple, far easier to break into than say, your cellphone. So once we start connecting these robots to the internet (we are almost there) hacking them is a piece of cake.
The tech expert, from Australia’s Deakin University, said:
“Hackers can hack into a robot or a robotic device and have full control of the connections, arms, legs and other attached tools like knives or welding devices.”
It isn’t entirely clear to this writer, why a sex robot would be holding a knife. That feels like human-error. There is no reason to have a knife anywhere near your naked body. Why did he even bring that up?
“Once a robot is hacked, the hacker has full control and can issue instructions to the robot.”
So while the claim that “robots are going to kill us all” is still just a lame Terminator cliche that shouldn’t scare us, it is at least worth CONSIDERING that if the plan is to stick your dick in something that has wifi…at least make sure you have a password set up.
