Artificial Intelligence has many different application, but Brian Sloan has come up with such a one that definitely going to attract many people attention. Brian Sloan and his team have built the world’s first artificial intelligence device for simulating oral sex i.e the world’s first AI sex toy.
Autoblow AI is the name of the toy. The company said that the Autoblow AI is an oral sex simulator that is capable of using artificial intelligence to teach itself to improve its performance.
The campaign to bring VIECI’s Autoblow AI’ into being has been incredibly successful, almost raising, which is 500 percent more than the company’s target.
“We spent the last three years listening to feedback from our 200,000 Autoblow 2 owners and in response built the new machine that mechanically better replicates the gliding and friction combination of the mouth and hand that men experience during oral sex,” explained the device’s inventor (and former lawyer) Brian Sloan.
Autoblow AI is the successor of the previous version on this AI sex toy, “Autoblow 2”, an oral sex simulator launched four years ago to level the playing field between male and female sex toys.
Autoblow AI is very highly technical containing intelligence similar to that found in a smartphone, it comes fully equipped with a ‘flesh-like’ sleeve and a ‘five-inch long stroking plane’ that is manipulated by infra-red sensors.
This AI sex toy combines a microcontroller with an infrared beam sensor and magnetic field sensors to manipulate a fleshy sleeve across 250 different points – along with a “5-inch-long stroking plane”.
Along with the ‘more human’ aspects, the AI sex toy also features ten different modes to enjoy – differing between ‘full stroke’ or ‘fast edge’. The Autoblow AI requires a plug-socket connection, uses several sensor components to work properly.
Data scientists working with the firm used nearly six full days worth of pornographic footage to determine how the fleshy mechanical sleeve should operate.
“By using artificial intelligence to, for the first time, understand the mechanics of blowjobs, we discovered and replicated techniques that make using our machine feel less robotic and more human,” says Brian Sloan.
To train the AI sex toy, Brian’s team collected 8,333 minutes of oral sex videos running at 50% speed. These videos manually moved a drawing of a head superimposed onto a drawing of a penis – to indicate the actions.
The machine learning model captured 30 screenshots of video per second and then used this to track the location data of the head drawing. A (perhaps unlucky) quality controller then had to re-watch all of the recordings to eliminate inaccurate data entries.
This saucy data was used to find the 16 “most-used mouth locations” along the penis. A machine learning model was then trained to cluster these movement sequences – and eventually turn them into product modes for the Autoblow.
According to Brian, the AI sex toy aim to re-balance sex toy tech across the genders.
“Walk into any adult store and you’ll find the majority of the floor space devoted to pleasure products for women,” he explained.
“In the men’s section, you’ll find crudely branded rubber body parts and masturbators you need to hold and move up and down manually. Few companies focus on men’s pleasure in general and even fewer focus on using new technology to offer men new and better experiences. Using artificial intelligence helped us ensure the experience is, mechanically speaking, as realistic as possible.”
Other improvements include quieter running compared to the Autoblow 2, and the use of colored LED indicators to show which mode and speed the gadget is in.
The AI sex toy is currently part of a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.
Autoblow has been live since October 17 and has already racked up an impressive $37,680 (around £28,797) in funding. At the time of writing, 310 backers had promised hard cash for the device – putting Brian well on his way to the $50,000 goal.
But this isn’t the first time we’ve seen “sex robot” gadgets marketed at randy punters. Californian firm Realbotix is already selling Harmony, a full-size sex robot that can talk to you, tell jokes, and even remember facts from previous conversations.
Unsurprisingly, the rise of sex dolls has some people worried.
We recently revealed the rise of robosexuality, marked by a seedy online world where sex-bot enthusiasts share robot porn with each other.
In July, psychology experts warned that sex robots could fuel a rise in sex addiction.
Dr. Birchard, who serves as the clinical director of the Marylebone Centre for Psychological Therapies, recently told the Daily Star they serve the same purpose as alcohol for people with drinking problems.
“It would just be another way of expressing sexual activity or addiction”. Sex addiction is a way to anesthetize hard to bear feeling states…These include, but are not limited to, loneliness, shame, boredom, and stress” he explained.
But anyway if you want to purchase Autoblow AI you’ll need to back at least $129 (roughly £99) to get it. This is actually a discounted price, with the retail markup listed 48% higher – at $249.
The estimated delivery is May 2019 assuming the target is met, but it’s looking very likely that Brian will hit his goal.
