Jason McNew, a cybersecurity expert who once worked for the White House Communications Agency, added that while it's possible that sex dolls could be hacked, limitations with its technology means it likely won't do much harm yet.
"A 115 pound [52 kilogram] robot that is covered with silicone won't be able to do much physically," McNew told Cosmopolitan. "Go onto YouTube and search for 'bipedal robots' – robots that can walk on two legs. Look at how heavy, ugly, cumbersome (and expensive) they are with today's technology."
Graham Cluey, a computer analyst commented on the story: “The truth is, all you need is any robot that interacts with a human in the workplace or in the home. It doesn't need to be a sex robot."
Just last month, cybersecurity firm IOActive published a report on the security flaws of home robots and the possibilities of them being hacked. They also revealed that audio and video could be recorded by the hacked robots and transmitted to an outside server.
