Sex robots are a thing. Some of us probably wish they weren’t but there’s no doubt that the sex robots are here and they’re here to stay. They’ve been getting more and more publicity in the media recently and the advancements in technology have supposedly made them better than ever. Love them, hate them, or just think they’re a bit gross, they’re not going anywhere.
So far, sex robots have mostly been designed to look like men with the intent of attracting men with their robotic charms. Some critics have even been concerned that sex with these robots could end up replacing having sex with real, live women. However, it seems like the tables are finally turning on these android ladies, as a new breed of sex robot is coming to town and it’s male.
Matt McMullen is the is the CEO of Realbotics and the creator of the Realbot, a frighteningly lifelike female sex doll. He says it won’t be long before the male equivalent will be hitting the shelves and they’re going to be equipped with bionic penises designed to bring pleasure to the ladies who buy the bot.
That’s Matt posing with one of his female sex dolls. Last year he announced his latest advancement in the world of sex doll technology, with the Harmony artificial intelligence app. The app syncs with the sex doll to give it a personality that talks, learns, and does everything else you would expect a sex robot to do. It’s been rumoured that the new male sex robots that Matt is creating will also feature this AI capability. Do you think it will be smart enough to put the seat down after it’s used the bathroom?
The Harmony AI sex robot is seriously expensive, costing the prospective buyer a staggering $15,000 depending on customisations wanted by Harmony’s new lover. But despite the huge price tag, Matt insists that there’s also a market for a male version of the sex robot. He told the Daily Star Online that “We’re working on a male version of the robot AI. We’ll eventually have a male and a female platform available.”
