For many years now, technology has been at the forefront of many of the greatest discoveries in science.

It has taken us on a ride through history’s greatest achievements that have shaped and changed the way we view and use technology, not just in the work environment but also in our everyday lives.

Over 90 percent of Americans who own cellular devices fall into the 77 percent that own smartphones. 69 percent own televisions, and 77 percent own desktop computers or tablets, the other percent own idiosyncratic and strange technological devices.

While  Apple releases their new iPhone and Samsung releases their virtual reality consoles, companies like Realbotix have invented a sex robot that now provides the user a different kind of pleasure in technology.

The cultural phenomenon in the world of technology derives from the influence of society. While the influence of selfies led companies to create tools like tripods, selfie sticks and drones in order to obtain better quality selfies, the continued subjugation of women in history has sadly brought evolution as far as sex robots.

Realbotix released Harmony, an anthropomorphic invention whose main function is to perform sexual acts, as of January 2018.

Although Harmony is considered a sex robot, the piece of technology that Christopher Trout exposed to the public cannot function like a normal woman.

Some disadvantages of Harmony include her inability to walk, respond to any physical acts, or perform any chores.

Aside from Harmony, sex robots have been on the come up for the past few years due to the fact that the technology manufacturing has increased over the past few years.

As it has been passed onto the hands of several  manufacturers, Realbotix has gone beyond the norm in technology and will even be releasing an app that allows you to control the robot yourself as opposed to the buyer performing all the work.

As new technological advancements like Harmony rise, the continued engineering of more sex robots will be placed on the pedestal of technology.

While the prices do vary depending on the manufacturers and location, converted to American U.S. dollars, Harmony ranges from 13,000 to 14,000 dollars. The app will be released in  early April.
