It’s a big challenge turning static sex dolls into interactive love robots, but scientists think they’re getting over that hump.

Matt McMullen has been creating realistic-looking human dolls for sex since 1997. He tells 60 Second Docs the technology needed to make raunchier robots is getting better all the time.


It might seem shocking that, for some, robots could virtually replace humans in the sex department, but McMullen thinks it’s going to happen.

“We just have to come to terms with each other and say, ‘OK, that’s for you, this is for me,’” he said.

“For some people, this is what they really want and it makes them happy and I don’t think anyone should judge them for that.”
