As Beijing strives to turn the country into a stronghold of artificial intelligence and embed technology in all aspects of life, some Chinese entrepreneurs are exploring new horizons: sex dolls.

WMDOLL, one of the largest doll manufacturers in China, which is based in the southeastern Guangdong province, launched what it calls artificial intelligence dolls in late 2016. The company offers features from simple conversation to moving eyes, arms, and torsos. Customers can personalize their dolls with a variety of designs including height, hairstyle, and eye color.
