One of the most realistic humanoids we've seen is a sex toy — because of course it is.
Some sex experts predict we’re headed toward a future in which “virtual” lovers replace human ones — and based on advances happening in the field of sex robots, it could eventually be hard to tell the difference.
One company in particular, DS Doll Robotics, has cooked up incredibly lifelike robotic heads and busts for sex dolls, which it shows off periodically in video clips, like the one below.
While the sex robot isn’t entirely indistinguishable from a human (the glowing light at the bot’s temple is a dead giveaway that it’s made of wire and rubber rather than flesh and blood), it’s closer than anything we’ve seen previously — meaning a future for “digisexuals” might arrive even sooner than expected.
