The Early Makings of a Talking Sex Robot

Video clips show a silicone beauty coming to life.

Robot lovers were overcome with excitement last year when Matt McMullen, the creator of the legendary RealDoll, announced the Realbotix project.

Along with a team of engineers, he’s creating a robotic head equipped with artificial intelligence that can connect to the body of his silicone love dolls. While still in the development phase, Abyss Creations/RealDoll has been releasing progress updates on Instagram.

Below is a systems test of the Realbotix V2 head called “Nova:”

The Nova already looks realistic, albeit more doll-like than human-like (which is likely the goal). It will be very interesting to see improvements once an actual prototype is revealed. Abyss Creations plans to be in the prototype stage in early 2017 and begin taking preorders later that same year.

Realbotix also plans to release a mobile app that holds the doll’s user-customizable personality. So you will be able to communicate with her wherever you are. The AI-enhanced robot will also integrate with virtual environments via virtual reality headsets.
