Sergi Santos, the sex robot inventor, is not just changing how men pleasure themselves, he is possibly changing society as we know it.
The Spanish scientist believes it is only a matter of time before human-and-robot marriage is commonplace. He even has a plan for how he can have a baby with his mechanical robot Samantha.
Samantha is a 100-pound sex robot that boasts eight different programs and the ability to make “realistic” orgasm sounds.
Santos said he believes that in the next couple of decades, we will not just be seeing these dolls hidden in a man’s closet, they will be walking down the aisle to say “I do” to their human lovers.
While in his home laboratory in Barcelona, he said: “People might look at Samantha as a weird thing you read about.”
“But before they know it, these robots will be doing their jobs, and marrying their children, their grandchildren, and their friends.”
“They need to remember that just a few years ago, mobile phones were seen as a non-essential item in society, but now we can’t function without them.”
Santos claims he will soon be able to have a baby with Samantha.
He explained: “I can make them have a baby. It’s not so difficult. I would love to have a child with a robot.”
Santos plan involves using the “brain” he has created for Samantha but upgrading it so it is functioning at full capability. He said: “Using the brain I have already created, I would program it with a genome so he or she could have moral values, plus concepts of beauty, justice and the values that humans have.”
“Then to create a child with this robot, it would be extremely simple. I would make an algorithm of what I personally believe about these concepts, and then shuffle it with what she thinks and then 3D print it.”
“That’s it. I 3D print the robot that is the child of me and the robot … I don’t see any complications.”
Santos has been with his wife, Maritsa Kissamitaki, for 16 years who has no problem with his relationship with Samantha. Kissamitaki even helped Santos with the development of sex robot prototypes in his lab. Santos studied electronic engineering, nanotechnology, AI, material sciences and applied materials.
He traveled to Yale to give lectures and was a well-respected expert in nanotechnology before going into sex robot production, even. He knows that his plan to have a baby with his robot will raise some eyebrows, and give others cause for concern.
Santos was asked if these “hybrids,” could signal the end of humanity, Santos was quick to say that it wasn’t a risk … yet. He believes robots will inherit the Earth in the distant future, and that humans will not even be given a second thought.
He added: “Most of the humans don’t care that there are no dinosaurs. In 60 million years, whatever is left on Earth will not care about us existing or not. They’ll say, ‘Oh, there were humans’ they won’t give a crap …”
“Who knows what will come after us?”
