THE world’s first affordable sex robot has been given a SCOTTISH accent – because it sounds the least robotic.
American made sexbot Harmony 2.1 is the latest invention in the sleazy world of sex dolls.
Harmony, who greets owners in a sultry Scots twang is set to hit shelves next January.
Punters can choose from 30 different faces and 16 body types when creating their perfect sexbot.
Sleazy preferences also include boob sizes up to a triple F and 11 different types of genitalia.
There are even 19 different NIPPLE TYPES to choose from – ranging from ‘perky’ to ‘puffy’.
Scots festival to discuss humans having sex with robots – as expert says the trend is here to stay
A personalised Harmony will set guys back anywhere between £7,600 and £15,200 depending on ‘customisation’.
But beyond the lifelike robotic head Harmony’s silicone body remains stiff.
Plans for robotic arms, hands, heat sensors and self-lubricating robots are still in the early stages.
Harmony is the brainchild of sex doll creator Matt McMullen.
The 48-year old has been working on the latest sexbot since 2014.
He said he chose a Scottish accent for his creation because, ironically, “it was the one which sounded the least robotic”.
And he is confident his sex robot will be the first affordable product available for guys.
He said: “There are humanoid robots out there much more impressive than Harmony.”
“But they are showpieces. No one has put a commercially useable and affordable product out there.
“Harmony is the first.”
The father-of-five founded RealDoll, one of America’s leading sex doll manufacturers.
The company sells 400 to 500 sex dolls every year.
But Matt, who first worked in a Halloween mask factory, doesn’t think people will buy his latest creation for sex – claiming a ‘human connection’ is more important.
He said: “I’ve put 20 years and millions of dollars of my own money into this and I can assure you that sex isn’t the main reason people are going to buy Harmony.
“It’s about companionship. For whatever reason, some people cannot make a human connection. That’s where we come in.”
He told MailOnline: “They want to hold hands, get a hug when they come home.
“The reason I’ve focused on the head first is that it doesn’t matter how beautiful a woman is, a man will always look at her face the most. You look into someone’s eyes.
“That’s what human interaction is all about.”
Men desperate for ‘human contact’ can control Harmony via an app on their phone or table.
The sexbot will ‘remember’ family members’ names, your favourite colour, food, book and even movie.
When switched on she automatically greets users with “hello baby, how are you today?”
She can even tell jokes.
The robot also has 18 different personality types including happy, sensual and shy.
Critics have blasted features such as ‘shy’ for encouraging rape.
Laura Bates, founder of the Everyday Sexism project, said creating a robot willing to have non-consensual sex “is to risk normalising rape but giving it a publicly acceptable face”.
She added: “We should no more be encouraging rapists to find a supposedly safe outlet than we should facilitate murderers by giving them realistic blood-spurting dummies to stab.”
RealDoll sales manager Annette Blair, 45, admits the company has had ‘odd’ requests including for a life-sized ‘elf’ doll but says they will never make a childlike doll.
Defending her clients, including men from the UK, she said: “Our customers are nothing like the perception of what people think they are.
“Many are widowers. All are lonely or have issues about forming lasting human connections.”
