One of the largest sex robot makers in China is using 3D printing methods to create what it says are dolls “developed from a real human”, according to a report in the Daily Star.
DS Dolls, which currently offers a range of 15 standard fully-made humanoid robots as well as individual body parts such as eyes and hair, is said to be implementing additive manufacturing process to “increase the speed and efficiency of production”.
The new technology will also enable the company to scan a real human and copy their body using synthetic materials to make the robot look exactly like the person in real life.
As quoted by the Star, DS Doll’s Europe distributor, Cloud Climax, says: “DS Doll is using the 3D printer to make many parts for the robotic doll prototypes.
“They are using this technology to improve on the speed and processing times for making improvements to the doll robots.
“Whilst previously casts would need to be made and then moulds, we can now input and print in a much faster time.”
While the Star story does not mention creating dolls in the image of famous celebrities, the company is believed to have demonstrated the ability to do so.
DS Dolls says it employs “sculptors, engineers, makeup artists, dozens of people, have to make continual refinements on each fabrication step, aiming for every detail to reach the peak”.
It adds that it invests “a lot of money” in the research and development of “new products and new characteristics, including artificial intelligence and mechanical skeleton”.
Meanwhile, Sputnik is reporting that a woman who has recently been caught up in some sort of scandal involving US President Donald Trump has licensed her face and body to a sex robot company.
The company which bought the rights as far back as 2014 is said to be Realdoll, a US company, according to Sputnik, which adds that the Stormy Daniels doll (main picture) retails at $6,000.
Realbotix, which is a subsidiary of Realdoll, says the company’s robots have “distinctive personalities” which are “designed to evolve over time”.
