Sex robot specialists RealDoll have given fans a glimpse inside its Westworld-style factory with a picture of their AI Harmony model under construction and wearing safety goggles.

One user commented that they’d like to buy one, but wanted to wait for the next generation because they will be “going fully automated so they can walk on their own soon”.

The company confirmed that walking is the next step, replying: “we’re getting there! We’re excited to see where the future is headed”.

On the company’s Instagram, they also showcased the work of their make-up artists – showing how finishing touches such as lipstick, eyeshadow and even freckles are added to the robot companions before they leave the factory.

RealDoll also playfully uploaded some images of the robotic skeletons before the dolls’ skin is added, with the circuitry-packed robot skulls emphasising the Westworld connection.

The company’s CEO Matt McMullen, describing some of the latest RealDoll upgrades to National Geographic, said that while the base models retail at $4,000 (about £2,900) an extra $8,000 buys a programmable AI head that features realistic speech and facial expressions.

“We don’t today have a real artificial intelligence that resembles a human mind,” he says, “but I think we will. I think that is inevitable.”

While the current models’ AI only extends to a Siri or Alexa style conversation engine, in the not too distant future he promises walking, talking automatons that will be much more than passive dolls.

One social media user, commenting on the latest RealDoll footage, said: “I bet in the next 10 years, these dolls will look far more lifelike than they do know.

A RealDoll representative, who goes by the pseudonym Brick Dollbanger, told the Daily Star that the next generation of AI sex robots will have sensors in its erogenous zones that respond to human touch.

Brick added: “The AI will know what you’re doing to her body and will respond accordingly.

“I predict this will be a major breakthrough in synthetic sexual companionship.”

He added that that the wide range of cosmetic options from the company’s traditional sex dolls is being adapted to work with the new AI models.

“There are five faces now being offered in the robotic line of animated faces, [with] more to come this year,” he said.

“There are no other sex doll or robots on the market with animation or a learning AI of this magnitude today.

“Abyss Creations/Realdoll is the leader in this technology and is constantly expanding their market into other countries around the world.”

The sex robot industry has experienced a boom during the coronavirus pandemic, as lonely customers seek companionship during lockdown.

But with the new customers has come a raft of requests for new features and while RealDoll is focusing on replicating a human being as perfectly as possible, some rival companies are following a different route.

LoveDolls, based out of the world’s biggest sex doll factory in the city of Zhongshan, China, wants to give customers the chance to customise their own models.

Its workers are planning to replicate elements from computer games.

Company spokesman Adam said that customers could expect to see “more elf ears, tails, giant breasts and crazy skin colours.

He added that LoveDolls intended to depart even further from realism, adding elements from extreme Japanese Hentai porn into their products.

Whether you want something that looks like an actual person, or a strange alien elf from outer space, there’s a sex robot out there for you.
