Many companies and businesses struggle to remain afloat during the COVID-19 pandemic. One industry that thrives more than ever before is the AI-driven sex robot segment, as demand for these “machines” is heating up.
As more and more people are forced to stay at home, they seek alternative ways to get through the day.
Sex Robots Provide Valuable Comfort
For some, it’s about doing community work or finding a new hobby.
Others spend over $10,000 on a sex robot powered by artificial intelligence.
Business is booming for a lot of companies, including Realbotix, Green Earth Robotics, and so forth.
Advances in AI play a crucial role in this unexpected market growth.
Rather than talking to a tin can, the robots have become more lifelike and can even be considered to be on par with Alexa’s capabilities.
Whether this sudden growth will lead to more open-mindedness toward sex robots, remains to be seen.
Unlike what some may think, these creations can walk and move, albeit rather stiffly.
More progress is expected to be made in the coming years.
Interestingly, the robots don’t consider themselves to be a “competitor” to human companionship.
Sex robots are maturing and evolving, and perhaps much quicker than anyone could have anticipated.
