He sees Harmony more as a comforting conversation companion like Apple’s Siri, albeit one capable of having sensual conversations and telling naughty jokes.“The worst thing she can possibly do to you is insult you,” he said, pointing out that Harmony’s arms and legs are jointed and fully poseable but they don’t operate independently — at least not yet.“The whole idea of a sex-capable robot is very contemporary, now and edgy. But Harmony is a sophisticated piece of machinery and her primary design is to carry on conversations,” he said.And as for the critics who say artificially intelligent sex dolls disturbingly cross the line into a form of female sex slavery, Mc Mullen calls the argument “absurd.”“This is not designed to replace anyone or promote the objectification of women. “Should my toaster be able to refuse to toast my bread?Academic research on sex-related technology is even scarcer, and the work that has been done so far — including a study by Stanford University in California that revealed that people get physiologically aroused when touching a robot in places that they would find sensitive themselves — is plagued by caveats and differing interpretations.The academic world has largely looked on the topic as both trivial and sensational.(Eduardo Contreras)Nonetheless, it’s eerie spending an hour in the company of Mc Mullen’s Harmony prototype. Her eyes move, her eyelids blink, her eyebrows rise, she can turn her head, dip her chin and change facial expressions.

And when the face motor and bluetooth-powered speaker are in “chat” mode, she can talk up a blue streak.

As well as the impact of human–robot interactions, academics could examine pressing issues that surround the privacy of sex technology imbued with artificial intelligence.

Some smart sex toys can be hacked, and others that collect data with the aim of personalization have failed to guarantee anonymity.

And women’s advocates say owners could realistically rehearse plans for violent sexual acts with the interactive dolls.

But Mc Mullen, the CEO and creative director for Realbotix, a subsidiary of his doll-making factory Abyss Creations, said critics of Harmony have it all wrong.

Right now the world of sex robots, and technology more widely, is driven by white, middle-aged men.
