“The future is upon us. I think it’s inevitable that humans and robots are going to coexist,” says Matt McMullen, the creator of a new robot that is about to hit the market. The robots are life size, made of medical grade silicone, they can hold a conversation and have a sexual relationship.
Matt says, “I think people have a knee jerk reaction when they consider the subject matter. They think that's so strange or so out there. I don’t see a lot of danger in it. At the end of the day, we really are focusing on the positive benefits of interacting with technology and how can we use that technology to help people who may be emotionally suffering or lonely.”
