If you’re spending your day at a tech industry festival chances are you’re not a huge hit with the gals, so this makes sense.
An engineer named Sergi Santos decided to show off his “intelligent” sex robot named “Samantha” at the Arts Electronica Festival in Austria, but according to him the sex robot now needs to be repaired all thanks to “barbarians” who completely manhandled her.

Here’s what Santos had to say to Metro.
“The people mounted Samantha’s breasts, her legs and arms. Two fingers were broken. She was heavily soiled. People can be bad. Because they did not understand the technology and did not have to pay for it, they treated the doll like barbarians.”
Samantha is programmed with artificial intelligence so that she responds to gentle and soft seduction. In other words, the more Samantha is “romanced” the more turned on she gets. But clearly these nerds at this festival were not gentle at all.
According to Santos, Samantha’s breasts and some other body parts were badly damaged at the festival, but the AI software in the robot still worked perfectly. Santos believes “she will pull through.” Well that’s a relief.
Here’s what Arran Lee Squire, a British engineer who helped Santos develop “Samantha,” had to say about this bizarre occurrence.
“I think people have just become over-excited and treated her like a sex doll. She isn’t a sex doll, she is a robot with AI.”
