Sex robot customers are attempting to kit out their models with eyes that are capable of facial recognition.

While they have previously been touted by sex robot manufacturers, dolls with these kinds of technological capabilities are not yet available on the market.

To get around this, one punter revealed they want to accessorise a model with WiFi glasses on forum Our Doll Community.

The products contain tiny cameras which are capable of hooking up to the internet and live streaming footage.

The user claims the video could be played on a PC with OpenCV library tools – which offer thousands of algorithms to help machines better understand facial expressions and classify human actions.

A sex robot could supposedly be controlled with the technology and do “exactly what Cozmo can do”.

Cozmo robots, designed for children, are capable of facial recognition and able to imitate certain emotions.

The machines, which contain 1.6 million lines of code, have drawn comparisons to Pixar’s beloved WALL-E character.

Cozmo can pick objects up, play games, and even go to “sleep” by shutting his eyes and snoring loudly.

Last January, sex robot manufacturer RealDoll told the Daily Star that their models will be capable of facial recognition within two years.

Based in San Marcos, California the US, the company utilises AI technology to produce some of the most realistic sex dolls and robots in the world.

A rep, who goes by the alias Brick Dollbanger, said some models will boast "spacial awareness" thanks to the installation of vision powered by artificial intelligence (AI).

With small cameras fit behind the eyes, a sex robot will be able to recognise you in a crowded room.

And along with this, they will be installed with sensors that respond to interactions in possibly the most lifelike way yet.

Brick, who helped unveil the updates at the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo, told the Daily Star: "They are going to be getting vision, they will have facial recognition and spacial recognition.

"They are going to come up with a body that has sensors, in the breasts, their hands, so that they will know when you're holding its hand, the AI will know when you're playing with it."
