Transgender” sex robots could be a new and exotic way to spice things up in your bedroom.
The Sun has learned that the Californian startup responsible for the female Harmony sex droid is now considering a transversion too.
Realbotix has been constantly in the news in recent months thanks to its revolutionary robot sexual companions.
Powered by artificial intelligence software, the lifelike bots have their own personalities and can even have a conversation with you.
The female Harmony model was launched last year, and a male version was recently announced to be in development.
But a senior Realbotix director has told The Sun that a “transgender” model could be the company’s next big project.
“We do believe there is a market not only for transgender but for any other sexual preferences of gender,” said Guile Lindroth, who heads up AI at Realbotix.
Lindroth said a trans robot is “not out of our plans” once the male robot is in production later this year.
He also told The Sun that it’s “not difficult” to re-design the physical robot design for a mixed-sex version.
The AI whiz explains that Realdoll, the company that started Realbotix, “already offers the option of transgender” sex dolls – without robotic functionality, of course.
Realdoll currently offers penis attachments for female sex dolls.
And the company will create custom-built “trans” dolls for anyone willing to pay.
The challenge, Lindroth admits, is adapting the actual robot software to be compatible with “variations” of Realbotix dolls.
“So we are starting with female and male before going further.”
