Developers at DS Doll are making advanced sex robots with artificial intelligence (AI) and full body movement at their workshop and factory in Dalian, a port city in north-east China.
The firm, one of China’s leading sex doll manufacturers, is about to release the first generation of its cyborg companion that can be “mass produced” and sold to customers across the world.
The team of researchers behind DS Doll’s sex robot has started to implement advanced manufacturing techniques to increase the speed and efficiency of production.
DS Doll marketing manager Sam told Daily Star Online that 3D printing is one method the company has adopted to make parts for the sex robots.
Eventually DS Doll is aiming to integrate 3D printing technology into its production line process, allowing the firm to make large quantities of sex robots at a rapid rate, Sam said.
“They are using this technology to improve on the speed and processing times for making improvements to the doll robots.
“Whilst previously casts would need to be made and then moulds, we can now input and print in a much faster time.”
3D printing is the process of joining or solidifying raw materials using high-tech machinery and computers to make three dimensional objects.
To print an object, 3D designs created on computer software are uploaded to the machine, often via a memory stick, which builds the material layer-by-layer.
“They can be developed from a real human”

The final product is made up of thousands of layered miniscule slices of raw material in a process called additive manufacturing.
Sam said the 3D printing technology operated by DS Doll has the capability to make sex robot replicas of humans by scanning their full body into the software.
He said: “The 3D printer works by developing the shape of the particular part in the computer software and then transferring to the printer.
“It is also connected to a 3D scanner which can be used to scan in the body of a full person as well as prototype parts for replication.
“This type of technology is excellent for creating new doll bodies and faces as they can be developed from a real human.”
Sam believes 3D printing will became an integral part of the manufacturing process given its laser-guided accuracy and economic efficiency.
“This means less wastage and lower development times.
“It is inevitable that this technology will become a large part of making robotic products in the foreseeable future for DS Doll.”
Sam has previously said that DS Doll can create sex robots with a “good likeness” of a person they are “looking to replicate”, but stressed they would need permission.
Cloud Climax has received enquiries about “sex dolls based upon celebrities”, he said.
DS Doll does not actually sell celebrity sex dolls or robots due to copyright infringement issues.
Celebrities would need to give their consent to any company intending to copy their image in sex robot form.
A number of robotics ethics and philosophers have claimed erotic cyborgs based on the image of celebrities will be popular in the future.
Dr David Levy, author of Love and Sex with Robots, has said there will “absolutely” be a demand for celebrity sex robots.
