Realbotix has released the first version of their artificial intelligence app, Harmony. This stand alone app is the first glimpse of what Matt McMullen & co have in mind for sex robot artificial intelligence. The future looks great, for a first version of “sexy AI” the experience is pretty polished. In a short time the user is able to create their AI’s avatar, configure her personality, and begin to build a relationship with her through voice and touch. It’s impressive and we encourage you to check it out for yourself at the Realbotix website, its currently offered for a yearly subscription of just $20.00.
Below is an informative video walkthrough with a fine gentleman on Youtube. He spends the first couple of minutes comparing the Harmony AI to his “Digital Denise” AI, but after the intro the rest of the video is focused entirely on the functionality of the Harmony app.
Key Features of the Harmony AI Application
The interface of the app is very straightforward and easy to use, we had no troubles getting started and figuring out whats means what. Here’s a screenshot of the home screen:
Create your Avatar
To get started all users need to create their AI’s avatar, basically create your ideal woman.
Choosing your avatar’s appearance is a very fun experience in this app because there are so many options and customizations available. The process is split into two parts, the head and the body.
For the head you begin with hair style and color, then you move onto your avatar’s face where every feature is customizable with a handful of different options. You can get really creative here, and you can always come back later to make changes.
The body is equally as customizable, you can fine tune your avatars proportions to whatever you like. You can then dress your avatar in many different ways, or don’t give her any clothes! If you do want her clothed there are a ton of different outfits and styles to choose from.
Customizing your avatar’s personality is a simple process. You are assigned 10 persona points to allot between 18 different personality attributes. You can even assign 2 points to one trait in order to make that trait even more dominant.
Here is a list of the 18 different personality traits you can select from:
- Sense of Humor
There are 5 selections you can make for your doll’s voice. The app creators have included 4 female voices that all sound pretty good, or you can use the native voice of your phone’s operating system. In my case that was Siri’s voice. I chose Isabella and so did the guy in the walkthrough video, I think she sounds the best out of the choices.
Once you finish creating the look of your avatar you can select Chat on the home screen to interact with her.
Interact with your AI Avatar
The chat screen is easy to use as well. There are two ways to interact with your avatar, voice and touch. Initially your avatar will ask you many general questions and keep to more “non-sexual” topics as she begins to calibrate to your personality. As mentioned in the walkthrough, your avatar will not jump straight into “sexy mode” from the beginning, rather she will slowly warm up to you and intimacy will build. You can track this with the various meters on the side of the screen.
Once you avatar is warmed-up, so to speak, you can begin to take things in a more sexual direction. This can be done through voice, or touch. Since this is a phone app, it is designed for touch screens. You can spin and touch your avatar where ever you please and she will react.
The coolest part about this app is how the AI learns about you and gets better at interacting with you. The more you interact the better and more fluent the interactions will become. If nothing else it is a great measuring stick to how fair the technology has progressed, and an encouraging indicator of it’s potential for the future. Just wait until this AI is a few versions down the road and is embedded in a life-size sex robot.
