Sex-Bot Builder Wants His Dolls to Talk Back, Negating The Purpose of Sex-Bots



There are so many gems in this video feature from the New York Times about a sex-bot maker, above and beyond that terrifying still above of a doll with her face peeled off. Like the fact that he compares having sex to playing Guitar Hero, he wants people eventually to fall in love with the dolls for their AI personalities, and yet…he wants them to always look like artificial dolls, because he thinks making them look too humanoid would be creepy.

Yeah. THAT’s the creepy part. Okay.

Nobody has apparently told him that if he really wants to make the big bucks in non-photo-realistic sex dolls, anime styling is where it’s at.

Hug your pillows tightly as you watch this…
