Behind the scenes

Once you're set up, you can interact with the Harmony AI using your voice alone. Over time, Harmony will continue to learn about you and remember "key facts" meant to "create an engaging simulation of a relationship," according to Abyss.

Headed for assembly

Each head will be mountable on preexisting RealDolls. The enhanced RealDoll will be able to move her neck and shake her head, and will have full jaw movement/lip sync with the Harmony app, in addition to blinking, roving eyes and moving brows.

Swap out a new robotic head for the old static one and you'll (probably) get more conversation out of her.
