Sex robots will be "difficult to tell" from humans in as little as several years, a leading manufacturer has vowed.
1AM Dolls President, Brent Lawson, told Daily Star Online his company offer more than 30 bodies and 100 different face options.
This gives customers a chance to customise female, male or transgender dolls before they build their "fantasy partner" for them.
But incredibly, Brent believes AI technology is evolving so rapidly that sex robots are on course to match humans for their realism in just years.
He told Daily Star Online: "In my opinion, we are several years away before we have the ability to perfect not only the AI portion but the remaining technology that would make it difficult to tell human from a doll/robot.
"The robotics and AI portions have been getting a lot of coverage over the last few years, so the public is aware of the strides being made.
"Over the years I think we have made major strides in realism, but my hope for the coming years is more innovation.
"In my opinion, there is a lot of focus on AI and robotics, but other innovations have been overlooked such as reducing the doll’s weight.
Meanwhile, Instagram girls are beginning to get that "uncanny valley" feel. Take Katie Bell, twice recommended by Donald Douglas at American Power:
Instagram star from Florida known for being one of Dan Bilzerian's "sister wives", the hoard of women who are paid to be around him.Is she real, or is she a simulation?
Her first Instagram post was on January 21, 2016, and was a video of her walking through a department store. The caption read "mood towards haters since '95."
She is an ambassador for Dan's company Ignite Cannabis Co.
UPDATE: The Wombat is back in business, with Rule Five Sunday: Black Widow.
