While robotic sex dolls are all the rage when it comes to non-human companionship these days, they’re not without their downsides. Not only are they incredibly expensive, especially if you go for the really good ones, but experts have warned that they could even become violent and end up physically harming their human owners if they experience coding errors. Pretty scary!
- The robotics need to be properly regulated. Doll collector Brick Dollbanger told Daily Star Online that if the robotics behind the dolls isn’t properly regulated, a “coding error” could see the dolls gaining free will and turning against their owners. “It scares me to death, it’s a machine and it’s always going to be a machine,” he said.
- These dolls are made of some heavy-duty stuff. Because companies want owners to have as realistic of an experience as possible, the dolls are being made with better quality materials that aren’t easy to overcome. “”If you’ve watched the movies, Ex-Machina, because I honestly believe synthetics are going to look very similar to that movie,” Brick explained. “It’s not going to be something you can hit with a pipe and it’s going to fall apart.”
- In fact, these things could be stronger than humans. If you think about it, humans are bone and muscles, but some of these sex dolls are made of steel! “I’ve always said, when a synthetic can support itself, that synthetic is going to be much stronger than a normal human,” Brick said.
“It’s going to be more durable, instead of having bones it’s going to have high impact, plastic or aluminum frame, it’s going to be very strong, and it won’t get tired, it won’t stop unless it runs out of an energy supply. Unless you stop it with some kind of projectile, like a gun or something like that, if this thing got out of control it could do some serious damage.”
- Things going wrong isn’t out of the realm of possibility. In fact, Brick says it’s as simple as “one line of bad code” and that it could go very wrong from there. “Put it this way it can put its arm around your neck and just stop you from breathing, and you wouldn’t be able to get away from it, something as simple as that, a simple hug could be a constriction that could literally compress your chest and airway and stop you breathing,” Brick said. Pretty scary stuff!
