In this episode of the VR Pimp Podcast I speak with Matt McMullen, the CEO of Abyss Creations. Matt is also the founder of Realbotix, an ongoing endeavor to integrate emerging technologies with life sized silicone doll artistry. Matt started Abyss Creations, the manufacturer of Realdoll, out of his garage in 1997. For the past 20 years, he has been creating the “The World’s Finest Love Dolls”, as well as undertaking multiple custom projects along the way. His dolls have popped up on more than 20 television shows, among them CSI: New York, My Name Is Earl, TLC’s My Strange Addiction, Sons of Anarchy, House and 2 Broke Girls. The dolls have also co-starred in 10 films, including Totally Busted 3, Rubberheart, Regarding Jenny and Surrogates.
Our discussion focuses mainly on the new Realbotix program and its three main components: Artificial Intelligence, Robotics and Virtual Reality.
