Sex robot specialists RealDoll have given fans a glimpse inside its Westworld-style factory with a picture of their AI Harmony model under construction and wearing safety goggles.

One user commented that they’d like to buy one, but wanted to wait for the next generation because they will be “going fully automated so they can walk on their own soon”.

The company confirmed that walking is the next step, replying: “we’re getting there! We’re excited to see where the future is headed”.

On the company’s Instagram, they also showcased the work of their make-up artists – showing how finishing touches such as lipstick, eyeshadow and even freckles are added to the robot companions before they leave the factory.

RealDoll also playfully uploaded some images of the robotic skeletons before the dolls’ skin is added, with the circuitry-packed robot skulls emphasising the Westworld connection.

The company’s CEO Matt McMullen, describing some of the latest RealDoll upgrades to National Geographic, said that while the base models retail at $4,000 (about £2,900) an extra $8,000 buys a programmable AI head that features realistic speech and facial expressions.

“We don’t today have a real artificial intelligence that resembles a human mind,” he says, “but I think we will. I think that is inevitable.”

While the current models’ AI only extends to a Siri or Alexa style conversation engine, in the not too distant future he promises walking, talking automatons that will be much more than passive dolls.

One social media user, commenting on the latest RealDoll footage, said: “I bet in the next 10 years, these dolls will look far more lifelike than they do know.

“I can’t wait until you can’t ever tell a sex doll from a real woman.”
