Shelly, 45, and Darris Maxie, 48, didn’t have a particularly exciting love life, so they tried polyamorous relationships at first. They decided it wasn’t for them, though, and found a $7,000 sex robot, Camila, instead. Hi-tech doll comes with artificial intelligence, and although they wanted to only use her as a sex toy, now they consider her a part of their family.
Camila is made of stainless steel but has life-like thermoplastic skin and interchangeable body parts, as well as her own custom AI.
The AI is programmed through a phone application where Darris can customize Camila’s personality and program her to respond to speech in real time, making her the closest thing to a sex robot money can buy.
