Sex robots could soon feel things “just like humans” after evolving a creepy new “printed skin” that imparts a sense of touch

SEX robots could start experiencing human-like sensations after scientists develop new artificial intelligence technology.

Researchers in California have created a printed skin that could show robots senses like touch.

The technology is part of a robotic platform connected to sensors attached to human skin.

Scientists hope humans will gain more control over robots while being protected from danger.

Researchers believe it will allow robots to sense temperature and detect if chemicals are toxic, according to the California Institute of Technology

Wei Gao, an assistant professor of medical engineering at Caltech, asked, “Can we also get them to perceive chemicals like explosives and nerve agents, or biological threats like infectious bacteria and viruses?”

The skin is made from a hydrogel designed to make robotic fingertips more human-like.

Scientists say there will be sensors inside the hydrogel, making it easier for robots to sense their surroundings.

The researchers added: “These sensors are literally printed on the skin, much like an inkjet printer prints text on a piece of paper.”

Gao believes the developers have demonstrated a “proof of concept,” but he wants to continue developing the skin.

He wants to improve its durability to make it last longer, as well as its stability.

Gao said, “We want to put it on more powerful robots and make them smarter and smarter.”

Scientists are optimistic they can tweak the inks and improve what robots can see.

Studies show that humans are starting to form all kinds of relationships with machines.

Almost 84 percent of the world’s people own a smartphone, a survey shows, and the devices are becoming something we can no longer live without.

David Levy, a PhD in social robotics, believes that AI robots will fully integrate into people’s social and sexual lives in the coming decades.

He said: “I think the first sophisticated sex robots will be on the market by 2050, but it will be another 50 years before they’re commonplace and people accept that it’s normal when a friend says, ‘I’m in in love with a robot and I am thinking about marrying it.

Ethics expert Neil MacArthur wrote in Men’s Health that he believes sex robots would help “intimacy and gender inequality.”

“ROBOTS HELP GENDER INEQUALITY”

He believes sex robots would help people who don’t have access to sexual partners due to various factors such as age, health or “normal level of attractiveness”.

However, critics claim the accessibility would lead to social isolation as robots would be an easier option than humans.

People don’t always choose the easiest option, MacArthur said.

He said: “Variety is our standard and that’s how we advance our lives and careers too – by making ourselves choose hard over easy.”

And a poll conducted by Sexual Alpha found that two in five people said they were open to the idea of ​​having sex with a bot.

More people seem to prefer being intimate with a sexbot (37.5 percent) than having casual sex with a human lover (30.1 percent).

The poll had a sample size of 3,292 people — which organizers admitted was small.

Tesla mogul Elon Musk said at the Code Conference in 2016: “We are already a cyborg.

“You have a digital version of yourself, a partial version of yourself online in your email, your social media and everything you do.”

Ameca is one of the most lifelike robots that can smile, blink and move its shoulders in an extremely realistic way.

Engineered Arts, the so-called “parents” of Ameca, said it was “the world’s most advanced robot in human form, representing the pinnacle of human robotic technology.”
