Over the last ten years, almost every adult has heard about the development of humanoid robots, whether through movies, books, or the actual scientific field. Some of these encounters focused on humanoid AI robots, some centred around the sxual purpose of them. So how advanced are sx robots really?
While society is steadily advancing the speech and learning capacities of AI robots, as well as focusing on improving mimicry and gestures, there are still a few key points that stop them from becoming realistic and feeling like a human:
Self-weight: While balancing our own body weight often seems like an easy thing, it is the work of many muscles and our brain working together. With robots often weighing up to 50 kg it already becomes a struggle to enable them to stand up and move around by themselves.
Smooth movement: Many sx robots still struggle with smooth movement that seems like a real human, often moving to abruptly or not fluidly enough.
Skin: You might know the feeling of silicone and plastic dolls. Once feeling that texture, you immediately know it is not a human. But imitating the feeling of human skin, with its irregularities and the touch of it, has turned out to be one of the key difficulties in building a humanoid sx robot.
