Then one day while walking through a department store, he was mesmerized by a human model posing as a mannequin.
Inspired, he decided to create a female figure so realistic it could be mistaken for a human.
Abyss has fulfilled orders for fantasy dolls with custom skin colors, fangs and elf ears, but it does not create dolls with disfiguring amputations, deformities or scarification.
The primary use of Real Dolls is for sex and companionship, but the company has also made dolls for TV shows including “Nip/Tuck” and “CSI: New York” and the movie “Lars and the Real Girl.”Specially adapted Real Dolls have been used in medical schools for training and the factory regularly works with mastectomy patients to create custom-made prosthetic silicone breasts.
He sees Harmony more as a comforting conversation companion like Apple’s Siri, albeit one capable of having sensual conversations and telling naughty jokes.“The worst thing she can possibly do to you is insult you,” he said, pointing out that Harmony’s arms and legs are jointed and fully poseable but they don’t operate independently — at least not yet.“The whole idea of a sex-capable robot is very contemporary, now and edgy. But Harmony is a sophisticated piece of machinery and her primary design is to carry on conversations,” he said.
And as for the critics who say artificially intelligent sex dolls disturbingly cross the line into a form of female sex slavery, Mc Mullen calls the argument “absurd.”“This is not designed to replace anyone or promote the objectification of women. “Should my toaster be able to refuse to toast my bread?
It was a way to move forward with my career and challenge myself to make them as realistic as possible,” he said.
Since 1997, Abyss Creations has custom-made and sold nearly 8,000 Real Dolls — the brand name for the sex dolls — in the U. as well as the United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, China and Australia.
But when a flood of customers asked him to make the dolls anatomically correct for sexual purposes, he went with the flow.“I saw the opportunity to make a living and do what I loved, which was art.News of creator Matt Mc Mullen’s latest invention — he’s been making lifelike silicone sex dolls for 20 years — has created international media interest and a firestorm of criticism from ethicists and futurists who see a dark side to a sex doll that becomes more “human” with each technological innovation.
