Do the dolls yell at you in Chinese as some Chinese are wont to do.

Could be a turn off.

the beginnings of an AI-driven shift in the industry quietly pulsed.

Probably and end time sign for a purely biological humanity.

Not that that's a bad thing.

Bad news for Japan's falling population. Even more lifelike dolls. Many of its men will soon not have to bother with interacting with women at all.

HAHAHAHA!!! Good one!

Exactly. Just watch the fertility rate plummet even more.

part of the depopulation strategy.....

Realistic sex robots, meanwhile, seemed a long way off

Realistic may not be an issue for some of the customers; maybe even for an increasing number, especially those who seem to abhor "meat-based" life. Maybe better to keep their artificiality.

I am kinda surprised cause pornography is banned in China.

Fewer marriages.

Fewer families.

Fewer children.

More fornication.

More objectification.

More perversity.

Can we program them? Voice simulation is coming along just fine, so choose a voice, program it with specific characteristics, background, age, likes/dislikes - all of that are going to make it one exciting ride!

Lots of people problem with sex is psychological,that why they have problems being intimate with anyone, needing outside stimulate for something that should be natural

Do we really need to see this filth on this site? Pandering to the perverts is as shallow as a worms grave.

I'm sure younger people who have an interest in Japan look at this site, they shouldn't see things like this.

AI lovers?

At least the pathological liars will live out their fantasy of cheating on an AI lover with another AI lover.

Organic creatures wouldn’t go near them.

"Although we make sex toys, we're trying to change the mindset of our community and make (the focus) less pornographic,"

This is still pornographic no matter how you slice it. It's an object, not a person. This is as bad as bestiality in my book. It's just plain sick and wrong.

I am kinda surprised cause pornography is banned in China.

And these things probably are banned there because they would go against CCP 'revolutionary' principals and ideas. But they wouldn't mind if YOU - a foreigner bought one.

Realistic sex robots, meanwhile, seemed a long way off -- the few on display moved jerkily, with limited and badly synced speech.

No they're not. With AI and memory chips (which are limited in memory anyway), they just have to 'respond' to certain 'pressures' from actions the customer gives it. The words it 'speaks' are spoken by a woman (or man) and recorded for the memory chip. Programmers and engineers handle the rest.

Still, this is no substitute for a real woman, it's not for me. No intelligence, no soul, no go.

If she's not real, it's no deal for me.

Teledildonics? OMFG that's funny. I can barely type as I laugh

field of teledildonics

That's a real field?!

Well, as they say with any new technology, the first 1% adopters are the innovators, then the next 10% are pornography, and then the rest of the population, Lol
