One of China’s largest sex doll manufacturers sends half of its overseas shipments to the United States.
The Chinese company WMDOLL ships half of its overseas exports to the U.S. and anticipates that its artificial intelligence (AI) model released at the end of 2016 will be just as popular to Americans as its non-AI products, Reuters reported.
WMDOLL sells an estimated 20,000 dolls a year. The dolls include various models of fake women with dozens of body shapes and over 260 different faces, according to Reuters. The company has sold over 20 AI model dolls that are priced between $1,400 to $7,400.
Eighty percent of the company’s total sales are exports. (RELATED: Sex Robots Are Here And Could Change Society Forever)
Its artificial intelligence model is called “Lucy” and can speak with a limited vocabulary and has remote-controlled limbs and body movement.
“Of course we’re not expecting to make our AI dolls that human-like, after all we’re just making adult products,” Liu Ding, a WMDOLL product manager, told Reuters.
The U.S. House of Representatives passed the Curbing Realistic Exploitative Electronic Pedophilic Robots (CREEPER) Act on June 13 as a response to new product knowledge on child sex bots. The bill would ban the importation and trafficking of child sex dolls, which come mostly from Asia, according to McClatchy DC.
The bill is under review in the U.S. Senate, according to Fox News.
