Robots and Sex

Listen in pop-out player

Rapid advances in computer technology and biomedicine are creating ever more human-like robots. How long before they are serving us in supermarkets and restaurants? Our technology correspondent Mark Gregory visits Engineered Arts, where they're blurring the boundaries between humans and machines. And we meet Roxxxy, the world's first sex robot, created by Douglas Hines, the founder of US company True Companion. Plus, we ask if change is always necessary for business. And, our regular contributor Lucy Kellaway takes inspiration from a Rolling Stones concert.
