Realbotix is rapidly progressing the technology of its AI girlfriends, including its flagship Harmony model.
It is currently fitting models with vision and facial recognition technology, and vows to improve realism through the use of 5G internet.
And next up will be will be dolls kissing in the same way humans do, according to sex doll collector Brick Dollbanger.
What’s more Brick, who works closely with Realbotix, insists he is growing increasingly attached to his sex robot.
He told Daily Star Online: “Vision is the next upgrade that will be included with the Harmony Realdoll X from Abyss.
“I hope to be testing it at the end of the year. The Nova that I am receiving has had numerous animatronic upgrades, better eye and facial movements.
“Her mouth will open wider and Abyss is exploring the possibility of her being able to kiss in the near future”

“Her mouth will open wider and Abyss is exploring the possibility of her being able to kiss in the near future.
“The AI itself is being developed for more memory and smoother information delivery to the user. This is the critical path for the AI right now.”
Asked how far away robots are from kissing “exactly like humans”, he continued: “Kissing is one to two years away.
“Having a synth as a companion has shown me that you can become attached to them.
“I am testing the newest model from Abyss-Realbotix called Nova. She is amazing and more realistic than I have encountered so far.”
Last week, Realbotix hit the headlines after making a sex robot modelled on comedian Whitney Cummings.
Cummings wanted one for her Netflix stand-up show Can I Touch It?
After the show hit the air, Realbotix were bombarded with requests for the same model.
But they were forced to turn them down because Cummings’ image rights are protected.
Brick, founder of brickdollbanger.com, added: “Realbotix designed and created Whitney’s robot.
“There were many requests to have another Whitney made for buyers, but Whitney’s likeness is protected so the requests were denied.
“However, they did order Harmony, and many of them that were directed to my videos and also bought the Nova face to use on the robot.”
Sex robots possessing the technology to walk are also in the works, and expected in around 10 years.
The technology is progressing so rapidly, Brick believes one day they will be “indistinguishable from humans”.
