NASA should send sex robots into space as synthetics are "the future of planet colonisation", an expert has said.
The space agency's next step on the way back to the Moon is to send a “Moonikin” – a dummy "made from materials that mimic human bones, soft tissues, and organs of an adult female,” on the flight deck of the unmanned Artemis 1 flight test.
The space agency even asked the public to help choose a name for the flight test dummy, carefully choosing a shortlist of eight choices to prevent any “Boaty McBoatface” type embarrassment.
But sex robot expert Brock Dollbanger has a better idea for testing the Project Artemis environment for female astronauts – sending one RealDoll’s AI-powered Harmony robots into space.
He told the Daily Star: “I think a robotic Harmony that they could talk to would be awesome.”
Brick added that populating future Moon bases or Mars colonies with RealDoll’s products would be a perfect first step as mankind becomes a multi-planetary species: “I think Synthetics are the future builders of planet colonisation,” he said. “If they build it, we will come..”
RealDoll’s sex robots are a degree more complex than NASA’s test “Moonikin”.
The job of the Project Artemis dummy will be to gather flight data to make future astronauts’ journeys more comfortable.
"As part of the uncrewed Artemis 1 flight test, NASA is seeking to learn how best to protect astronauts for Artemis 2, the first mission with crew," a NASA spokesperson explained. "The manikin flying on Artemis 1 will occupy the commander's seat inside Orion… and wear a first-generation Orion Crew Survival System suit — a spacesuit astronauts will wear during launch, entry, and other dynamic phases of their missions."
The names on NASA’s shortlist are Ace, Campos, Delos, Duhart, Montgomery, Rigel, Shackleton and Wargo.
But Brick thinks “they should name it Harmony”.
The $6,000 dollar RealDoll product features the company’s proprietary "X-Mode" AI software, which allows users to create unique personalities and choose the unique voice of their robot.
Additionally, the doll’s Sense X tactile feedback system enables it to transmit detailed information on touch and other stimuli via Bluetooth – making it a perfect off-the-shelf solution for spacecraft testing or anything else the buyer has in mind.
Maurice Op de Beek, the Chief Technology Officer at Kiiroo and FeelRobotics, has also been thinking about the practicalities of using sex-tech devices in outer space.
He told the Daily Star that he’d be interested providing the company’s teledildonics hardware to help astronauts feel connected to their earthbound partners: “I’m sure it would be possible to get a connection from the International Space Station.
“Understandably, there would be a huge lag, but it would be possible because the infrastructure for that connection has already been developed. It would be a great way for astronauts to stay connected to their loved ones at home,” he added.
