CES18: Solana. The New Attractive Sex-Robot from RealDoll
Not so long ago the first sex-robot Harmony from the RealDoll Company was presented to the world. It was not merely a commercial step. Developers stated it was an experiment and engineers wanted to understand what kind of emotions machines cause: disgust or interest. This year, at CES the company released RealDoll Harmony’s sister with a new face, updated AI and several new features. They tried to make it even more realistic. The new robot received the unusual name Solana.
Its first difference is blonde hair. The creator of the robot Matt McMullen explained that the robot’s appearance is universal, as everyone loves blonde-haired women. Switching in the Harmony application to another robot, one can choose the personality features and make an individual profile and an avatar. The user can easily move and add various faces to one and the same robot. The app users get the opportunity create the unique character of their Solana robot, talk to it, working with an algorithm that processes and remembers the answers just like with the previous sex AI.
Currently, the company is creating a body equipped with a great deal of sensors that allow it to react to touch and give to AI the ability to move. The engineer added that he wanted to get a moving robot, but as for now, he has built a torso that gestures and rotates. Until then, McMullen was able to collect around 20 bots, and already has the same number of pre-orders. During an interview at the CES scene, he said that he was also working on the development of male sex bots.
