But, unlike the female cyborgs already on the market, this life-like doll isn’t entirely automated; users will have to lend a helping hand.Designed to be anatomically correct, the silicone body is controlled through a mobile tablet app. Start a conversation with Henry, and he’ll answer questions, repeat love poems, and tell jokes.“What does a cloud with an itchy rash do?” he asked in a new video from Realbotix. “Find the nearest skyscraper.”Wow, unfunny and flaccid.

Want a custom skin tone, freckles, tan lines, tattoos, body hair, and nipples? That’ll be another $1,000-plus.“We are getting excellent feedback from buyers and curious people who have never seen this kind of product before,” Sinthetics told Geek last year. “The male dolls are an integral part of our business, which currently makes up about 60 percent of our sales.“This is a new product type for the industry, so we’re sure it’s just beginning to gain momentum and will continue to increase as awareness increases,” the company added.The niche market, seemingly open only to the independently wealthy (or incredibly desperate), is still in its infancy.
