Robots that can have sex with humans may be on the market as soon as 2017 -- at least that's what Abyss Creations developers are hoping to achieve in the New Year. During the second Love and Sex with Robots conference, which started Monday, researchers from the California sex toy company said they would release an artificial intelligence-enhanced sex doll. The doll, which would be a part of the company's RealDoll line, would be the most human-like sex-dolls to hit the market, capable of talking and moving like humans. "Sex with robots is just around the corner, with the first sexbots coming ... sometime next year," Dr. David Levy, an artificial intelligence expert who has long predicted the coming of robots capable of sexual relationships, said during closing remarks at the conference. During the weeklong conference held at Goldsmith University in London, a slew of companies debuted the latest developments in robotic sex toys, including one called the "Kissenger," which would allow people to send and feel kisses through a device that attaches to mobile phones.
