The future just keeps coming at us like a tsunami, and RealDoll CEO Matt McMullen says emotional sex robots are riding the crest of that wave. In a recent interview with The Daily Star, McMullen revealed that he's introducing an artificially intelligent robot in April this year, one with which human lovers will be able to develop an authentic connection.
“Emotional connections are the foundations of relationships and that’s what we are simulating," McMullen told the Star, "And it’s emotions which add the X Factor to sex. I think two people can meet in a bar, have sex the same night and not remember each other’s names and say, 'well that was fun.'"
People "crave" a "deeper connection," McMullen reportedly said. With the new robots he claims to have in store, users can facilitate that connection with a special app that can be used on phones, tablets and computers. The app will coordinate with the robot to provide an even more authentic experience.
The Star reported that the newest line of RealDolls will be "witty" and unpredictable and will come with a wide variety of personalities, including "Sexual, kind, shy, friendly, naive and intellectual." Users will be able to tweak these qualities as they please.
McMullen first spoke of these leveled-up, more realistic sex machines back in October. At that time, he stated they will cost somewhere around $15,000.
These robots won't be able to accompany you to movies or dinner necessarily, but they also probably won't tell you when your golf shirt is looking too tight. So if they're what you've been waiting for, April is just a few months away. Start saving now.
