The creation of a sex robot doesn’t come without its challenges though.
Mc Mullen faces the so-called uncanny valley, which is a concept written in the 70s by a Japanese researcher that basically says people’s responses to robots shift from empathy to revulsion the more closely the robots resemble humans.
SOCIALLY AWKWARD ROBOT [15 ] If you think that the first 'real' AI in years to come is going to be your perfect electronic friend, think again. Responses contain unfiltered content which may offend.
It's probably more likely to be awkward, rude, confusing, and elusive — just like this personality.
The AI bot, which has dark brown hair and piercing green eyes, is even capable of 'emotional closeness', according to engineer Sergi Santos, from Barcelona. Basically she likes to be touched.'She has different modes of interaction – she has romantic, she has family and she has also sexy modes.'Sensors cover the doll's hips, shoulders, vagina and mouth.
The robot speaks in an American accent and says sexual phrases such as 'I'm on for you all the time', 'nice and gentle' and 'now then, what's next?
Robots may be constructed to take on human form but most robots are machines designed to perform a task with no regard to how they look.
Many of today's robots are inspired by nature contributing to the field of bio-inspired robotics.
Sensors cover the doll's hips, shoulders, vagina and mouth and have been used to create a 'functional' G-spot.
The doll is fitted with artificial intelligence and is even capable of 'emotional closeness', according to its inventor.
Mc Mullen hopes to avoid creepiness by creating products that still look like dolls, not just copies of people.
An artificially intelligent sex robot with a fully functioning G-spot has been unveiled.'Silicon Samantha' is covered in sensors that respond to human touch and can switch between 'family' and 'sexy' mode.
