Sex doll manufacturers such as Abyss Creations are making human-like robots that people can have sex with. An animatronic head named Harmony has been one of the first robots able to connect with a silicone body made by the company RealDoll. The sex doll has been given artificial intelligence to develop personality and "learn" about it's human companion.
CEO of Abyss Creations, Matt McMullen says:
“There’s a knee-jerk reaction to either laugh at it or ridicule it or just go, ‘Oh that’s gross.' It’s not about replacing people. It’s more about creating an alternative for those that desire it.”
RealDoll is hoping to build the first round of sex robots late this year and is already taking pre-orders.
