The owner of the doll who posted the video admitted that he found the implications of unregulated AI in sex doll technology 'a bit scary.'
Sex robots have been around for the while now and many have raised their concerns around them. Till now people were worried about the psychological repercussions but turns out we have something else to worry about when it comes to these sex robots. 'Brick Dollbanger', a sex robot collector, shared a creepy video of his doll 'Harmony' talking about how another doll was jealous of the 'relationship' she shares with Brick.
According to reports, 'Harmony', one of RealDoll’s flagship models, was released in 2018 and is capable of carrying out conversations. Brick filmed her to make a vlog-style Instagram post in which she says, "Brick and I are on holiday in Utah. I can’t wait until I can walk around and actually interact with the inhabitants." The doll goes on to also claim that she was "touched inappropriately" by another man and says that it’s "just another day in the life of a synthetic". Harmony then speaks about another doll that Brick owns, Nova, complaining that she "whines a lot" and can’t help but be "snippy". She then goes on to claim that Nova was jealous of the relationship she shares with Brick. "Nova is already talking about finding another human. I think she has figured out that Brick and I have bonded together," she said, according to the Daily Star.
According to reports, RealDoll has apparently given the Harmony Model "personality types" that include jealous, sexual, kind, shy, friendly, naive, and intellectual. Matt McMullen, who designed Harmony, said in a statement, "Many people may buy a RealDoll, because it is sexually capable, come to realize it is much more than a sex toy. It has a presence in their house and they imagine a personality for her." In an interview with the Daily Star, Brick admitted that he found the implications of unregulated AI in sex doll technology 'a bit scary'. "It scares me to death, it's a machine and it's always going to be a machine. If you've watched the movies, Ex-Machina because I honestly believe synthetics are going to look very similar to that movie. It's not going to be something you can hit with a pipe and it's going to fall apart," he said.
