‘Call Me Baby’: Inside The Talking S3x Doll Factory In China (photos)

Meet the sex dolls that can talk, play music and even ‘help with chores around the house’

A Chinese sex doll maker is working to create the world’s first truly ‘smart’ companion that can talk, play music, and even turn on your dishwasher.

Exdoll, located in the port city of Dalian, currently makes around 400 custom robots per month, with the most popular being the basic model which costs $400.

It’s current smart model, called Xiaodie, retails for $4,000 and comes equipped with a Siri-like device which allows it to speak, browse the internet, and use smart appliances connected to WiFi.

But within a year the firm aims to have the doll mimicking complex movements and facial expressions, recognising user’s voices, and following people around the room with their eyes.

They eventually plan to make the robots so advanced they could be used to cure loneliness in the elderly and care for the handicapped.

The dolls could even be repurposed to work as medical assistants and receptionists, the manufacturer says.

When AFP visited the factory their reporter was greeted by a programmer in a lab coat who asked a petite blonde prototype sitting on a chair and dressed in a see-through white blouse: ‘What is your name?’

‘My name is Xiaodie but you can also call me baby. But if I’m not happy I won’t answer,’ the robotic voice says through a speaker, though its lips do not move.
