A new range of futuristic sex robots will be unveiled at a world-famous adult entertainment event.
RealDoll will flaunt its latest line of dolls powered by artificial intelligence (AI) at the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas.
The event, held at the Hard Rock Cafe Hotel and Casino, brings together adult entertainers from around the world.
RealDoll – also known as Abyss – has not attended for a number of years, but promises to give attendees an insight into its world of silicone sex toys.
Brick Dollbanger, a sex doll collector and representative for RealDoll, told Daily Star Online: "There is a great deal of robotic upgrades and products that Abyss will be rolling out in 2020."
On RealDoll's Instagram page, staff are seen preparing a range of dolls for the event.
In one post, the caption reads: "Guess where we’ll be next week"
"After a few years away, RealDoll is headed back to Adult Entertainment Expo next week in Las Vegas. See you all there."
And the company also revealed it is going to bring its flagship Harmony model.
Harmony is equipped with AI technology that allows customers to hold a conversation with the doll.
A caption read: "Guess who else will be joining us at the AVN Expo?
"That’s right. We’re bringing Harmony along for the ride, and you’ll be able to chat and interact with her."
RealDoll recently gave Daily Star Online a tour of its Westworld-style factory tour via video link at a Raspberry Dream Labs event in London.
Production manager Mike Wilson says in the video: "A few people here have worked in Hollywood on movies.
"We work on 300 to 400 dolls a year, so as you can tell the action never stops here. There is a lot that the robotic aspects really allow us to do here at RealDoll.
"For those who don't know, we actually have a design where robotic heads can attach, moderately speaking, to any currently existing doll.
"So even if you already have a doll, you can buy one of these heads."
And founder, Matt McMullen, told us he believes his dolls are as little as five years away from being indistinguishable from humans.
He said: "I think in some ways that (robots looking identical to humans) is not that far off, and in other ways it seems so far off that I can't predict.
"I think AI in particular has a huge amount of work that remains, even the smartest AI on the planet is probably about as bright as an earthworm.
"Something like a self-driving car may seem fantastical but it's really not intelligence it's just math.
"So real AI, the kind that everyone seems really concerned with when they ask about robots, that's really far off.
"The physical nature of the robots, in terms of engineering and the underlying structures and machinery that make it move and the skin technology and the appearance of it, that part of it to me seems more tangible than the control.
"I would say probably within five to 10 years the appearance of a robot is going to drastically improve.
"AI may start to approach something in the mammal category but I don't see, necessarily, human-like intelligence and as such I don't think we can even consider the idea of human like self-awareness.
"That is really the big can of worms that people worry about with AI.
"So that's a little bit further out but I do think the engineering side and the artistic side will come a long way in the next 10 years."
