A new futuristic sex robot equipped with "full artificial intelligence" has hit the market – with bosses vowing the dolls can replace human intimacy.
AIAI-Tech promises its flagship model, Emma, can hold an interactive conversation and answer questions in a way tailored to its owner.
The AI girlfriends achieve this thanks to their ability to learn, meaning they absorb and store information before applying it to their behaviour.

Its automated head can turn at the neck and make facial expressions, including the ability to blink.
And what's more, bosses say their dolls are already replacing humans emotionally and physically for customers.
Sam White, a manager at Cloud Climax, told Daily Star Online: "Our dolls are already able to replace a physical human being for our customers and this can work on an emotional level as well as a physical one.
"You see these articles about people marrying their sex doll and obviously this is the over-the-top version of a doll owner.
"Generally speaking doll owners are emotionally attached to their dolls and see them as their partner, just as others have a human partner."
He added: "Emma is equipped with Artificial Intelligence.
"If you tell her you like something she will remember. You can also tell her to remember something and she will remember it for you: 'Emma, it is my grandmother's birthday next Tuesday, please remind me to send her card on Monday'.
"You can ask her to change her name to something else if you don’t like Emma and prefer to call her Jessica.
"If Emma tells you a joke that you find funny she will remember that you laughed.
"Emma now has an app and an online user interface that can be subscribed to so as you can teach her answers to your questions.
"You type in your question and her answer and it will send to your Emma. This is done securely in the cloud.
"When you are away from her you can use the app to text her and she will respond."
So far, Emma has been a hit with customers forking out the cash.
According to Sam, it is proving proving popular because of the ability to edit the doll to personal taste.
He continued: "Customers like Emma because they can develop her to make her their own.
"We have certain faces and body types that are more popular than others and we are getting great feedback about the online programming platform and app.
"There are constant developments to the AI and to the programming which can be sent from AI-AITech remotely to each Emma so as she upgrades automatically to keep in line with the latest software.
"There have been many improvements in the last months, the way that the mouth is able to move, her language development is really good and our first Emma customers have seen this development as their Emma’s have upgraded."
