sergi santos sex robotThis hyper-realistic sex robot filmed having an orgasm in a jaw-dropping video can now be bought for the first time.

The human-like erotic cyborg, named Samantha, has been programmed with eight different modes: family, entertainment, analysis, sleep and three sexy settings -- romantic, calm and nasty.

For around 2,500 customers can buy their very own sex robot.

Its creator, Dr Sergi Santos, from Barcelona, told Daily Star Online the experience of seeing Samantha climax will be surreal and comparable, if not better, than human sex. After months of fine tuning, Dr Santos, a scientist and academic, has finally started selling his talking female androids through his robotics company, Synthea Amatus.

Her brain memory is stored on an SD card in a computer inside her head, which is attached to the voluptuous silicone body. Her body has pressure points, which are responsive to physical interaction and feedback to the brain. This means Samantha can tell when you're getting excited because of penetration, speed and the way she got aroused

Samantha can be seen at Liberation sex shop in Covent Garden.

Virtual reality headset producers require developers to obtain an IARC rating for games


Link Here 21st January 2017
oculous logoVirtual reality headset manufacturer Oculus have announced that all games made available on its Oculus Store must have an age classification determined using tools from the International Age Rating Coalition (IARC). The company writes in a blog post:

We're committed to helping everyone on the Oculus platform make well-informed purchasing decisions. That's why we are now utilizing the International Age Rating Coalition (IARC) to give people trusted and familiar ratings for all Oculus experiences.

Moving forward, all titles in the Oculus Store will need to show age and content ratings assigned through the IARC rating process. This change will make it easier for developers to get age and content ratings for your app from multiple territories simultaneously. It also provides consumers a consistent set of familiar and trusted ratings that reflect their own cultural norms regarding content and age-appropriateness.

In order to give people consistent ratings no matter where they live, all titles in the Oculus Store must have IARC assigned ratings. New titles submitted to the store will receive an automatic prompt to obtain their rating through IARC by answering a simple set of questions. IARC will provide a rating for each applicable region and rating authority at the conclusion of the questionnaire. The ratings will then be automatically applied to the title. Existing titles will need to complete the IARC rating process no later than March 1, 2017 to avoid removal from the Oculus Store.
