Sex robots that do your chores for you are coming in 2018

Finally you'll be able to get yourself sex robot that can also do housework. About bloody time, huh?

Exdoll, in Dalian China, is investing in smart, AI-type technology so that its new model of sex robots are fitted with system similar to Alexa or Siri and is connected to the Internet, so you can have a chat with it, ask it to sing for you or even get it to carry out tasks around the home, if you have a smart-home system in place.

The doll, called Xiaodie, is on sale for $4,000 ($5,500 NZD) which might seem pricey, but as well as a robot-lover you're also getting something that can switch on the dishwasher or turn on the heating.

So a bargain, really.
