"I has seen the enemy and he is us."

PBS Nova The Rise Of The Drones details a gigapixel-resolution drone cam made of 3mp phone cams, a veritable commodity, and small.

12mp cams are smaller now. Multiplexing all those video streams over a broad enough RF band to allow realtime data transmission could be trixy, but a few gimmicks from the synthetic apreture radar world might come in handy. Encryption and burst would each add sophistication, and complexity, but this is almost garage band stuff from a technical pov....

As much as I would like to say something along the lines of "WE DON´T REALLY NEED MEN IN THIS WORLD ANYMORE!!" :{D
the fact remains that I don't think I would like to have sex with a robot forever and ever.
Wouldn't that just be like your vibrator did the work on its own? That is not nearly as satisfying as a human partner... :ask:

I guess it would depend - a vibrator never gets tired, and never has a refractory period, and can't prematurely ejaculate.

It wouldn't be slowed down by forgotten leg shaving, and would still stay hard even if your ass really did look fat in those pants.....

....and it wouldn't keep pestering you to let it come on your face....

....well, can't guarantee that last one...

I love this idea... but will the silicon base (I assume that's what would be used) used as skin feel the same as human skin? :ask:
