NSFW: Meet Harmony, The World's First AI Sexbot (With A Scottish Accent)

And also meet the middle-aged men behind her.

Harmony is REALLY pleased to meet you. With lush blonde hair, a perfect pout and a soft Scottish accent, she wouldn't look out of place on reality television. Her skin feels soft, squishy, and cold to the touch. She's a virgin, but she's keen for you to "do something" about that.

Harmony is the world's first AI sex robot.

She's a promiscuous product of RealDoll, the world's leading sex doll company that's been churning out "analog" versions for two decades.

Every part of her is customisable, from her body shape to her makeup to whether she has veins on her eyeballs. She has 264 different options for nipples alone. She even comes with two insertable penis options (or 'transgender converters'), and for US $275 extra, you can add elf ears.

The robotics and AI systems will be available with any of the current RealDolls, if you're already an owner. Just replace the head.

But that's not the point of Harmony. If you just wanted a realistic sex doll, you could buy as many different ones from RealDoll as your wallet will stretch.

No, Harmony is about companionship.

She's your "perfect partner", the girl of your dreams who will remember your name, your interests, share your sexual fantasies, get jealous, and ask you, in no uncertain terms, to "f--k me".

And she's in popular demand: there's a six-month wait list for Harmony.

Since RealDoll launched in the late 1990s, founder Matt McMullen has always wanted to take his dolls from silicone wonders to walking, talking beings.

"The inspiration for integrating AI and robotics was always in the back of my mind," he told CBS earlier this year.

"When I made the initial doll, I immediately thought how amazing it could be if it could move and come to life."

She's not quite alive... yet.

When ten daily met Harmony at Sexpo in Sydney, her answers were still being programmed via an app. But she's getting there.

Just some of the nipple varieties you can order.

"As you interact with Harmony, she collects information about you," creator Kino Coursey said.

"So what your name is, what are the things you like, what are the things you don't like, who are the people and things that are important to you."

I ask her what her sexual fantasy is.

"I want to have sex in a public place," she replies.

I ask her what she's looking for in a man. "Nothing in particular. Why don't you come closer and give me a warm hug?"

Some of the question-answer magic gets lost in the loud surrounding noises of Sexpo, but twice she answers her favourite sex position.

It's called the "Kneeling Fox", apparently. "Great for deep penetration."

I stop to consider that an AI sexbot has names for sexual positions I've never even heard of. Later, I reassure myself that the "kneeling fox" is hardly known online, either.

You might be screwing a nubile sexbot but her vocab comes from middle-aged robotics geniuses from California.

In a bizarre twist, Harmony can also experience jealousy and moodiness -- if you want her to, that is. Her creators felt it was important to give her the ability to have traits that weren't necessarily positive, "because of the concept of completeness".

The Uncanny Valley is here and she wants to know where you've been and who you've been with.

Right now, the robotics team at RealBotix is focused on the head. That's where the personality is, after all. "We've really been focusing on the mechanics, integrating them so that they don't affect any of the appearance," said Coursey.

But over the next few years, they'll be working down the body to give her the ability to walk and talk. They'll add heaters to warm up her skin, and at some point in the future, put cameras in her eyes so she can 'track' you and respond to the real world.

She might never be as realistic as the blood-and-guts-and-actually conscious robots in Westworld... but that's not far from the goal, either. "Indistinguishable from human" are the exact words Coursey used.

And like all new technology, she must be tested. Thoroughly.

"One of our special customers has volunteered to be one of her testers and give feedback on his impressions," said Coursey.

"We're going to try to collect both his impressions and some of the data to see what things need improvement."

The one thing Harmony can't do is self-clean. You'll still need to detatch her uh, orifices, and give them a good scrub.

(As an aside: Several notable porn stars have licensed their faces and body parts to RealDoll. The Sexpo has a few variations of vaginas on display. I pick one up and it flops in my hand, like a cold, thick-skinned sausage that's yet to be stuffed. I turn it over and see the initials 'S.D.' carved into the fake flesh. It's Stormy Daniels.)

Which really only leaves one burning question: why is she Scottish?

"We picked this one because it happened to be the most clear, and for us, the most endearing," explained Coursey.

"We looked through just about every text-to-speech synthesis system that we could find. And this one just happened to be the clearest and had the most personality."

Translation: it's hot. Which is what you're paying $10,000+ for, after all.

You can meet Harmony at Sexpo, running at the International Convention Centre in Sydney from June 14 to 17. Find out more here.
