Inventor Sergi Santos made a shocking announcement. He believes that human-and-robot marriages will be commonplace.
New York Post reported that the scientist wanted to have babies with Samantha, his sex robot.
The Spanish scientist could be changing society as we know it. Santos believes that humans and robots could soon be tied in holy matrimony in the near future. He now plans to procreate with his mechanical temptress.
Samantha is the scientists’ 100-pound sex robot that boasts eight different programs.
Speaking to Sun Online, he said that in the next couple of decades people will not hide the dolls in the closet anymore. They could well be walking down the aisle to say “I do” to their human lovers.
“People might look at Samantha as a weird thing you read about. But before they know it, these robots will be doing their jobs, and marrying their children, their grandchildren, and their friends.”

He provided an example of how mobile phones were seen as a non-essential item in society until a few years ago. However, they are now an important part of our lives.
In an interview from his home laboratory in Barcelona, the scientist explained that the “process” of having a baby was not difficult. He plans to use the “brain” he created for Samantha with an upgrade so it functions at full capacity.
He would program it with a genome so the offspring could have moral values, concepts of beauty, justice, and the values of humans. He could then make an algorithm of the concepts he believes in and the shuffle it with what she thinks and then 3D print it.
He said that it was extremely simple to have a child with the robot without any complications.
The source also added that his wife, Maritsa Kissamitaki, has no issues with his relationship with Samantha. Kissamitaki, his wife of 16 years, even helped him develop the robot prototypes in his lab.
Santos has studied electronic engineering, nanotechnology, AI, material sciences, and applied materials. According to NY Post, he was a well-respected expert in nanotechnology before going into robot production.
