We talked to RealDoll CEO Matt Mullen about the company's latest project: making robotic sex dolls that talk, text, and email back

In PSFK Labs' research for the new Sex, Drugs and Alcohol Debrief,  our team explored emerging services and businesses helping to redefine the modern perceptions of vice.  As consumers continue to integrate mobile and tech into their everyday, people are enjoying products in more intimate ways.  From VR porn to remote-controlled toys, sex-tech is here to transform the digital scope of the bedroom.

Abyss Creations, the company beyond Realdoll (life-sized, silicone sex dolls), wants to start making robotic sex dolls that talk back, flirt and interact with the customer. The project, called Realbotix, is the company's first venture into the world of artificial intelligence. It involves an AI-powered animatronic head that can be fitted onto preexisting doll bodies, a pocket-pet doll accessible through an app and a version of the doll in virtual reality.
