OK, so this is pushing my normal beat of "toys" to its most extreme (and NSFW) fringes, but come on. This was too interesting to pass up.
Photographer Zackary Canepari has done a series called "Love Machines", which is a range of fascinating, terrifying photos from the production floor of Abyss Creations, a sex doll manufacturer in California.
I'm sure it's intended to be a shocking contrast between the intimacy and "warmth" the finished product finds itself in and the cold, stark surroundings in which it's constructed. But I can only see horrific science fiction movies waiting to be made.
It's like a waking version of that nightmare you once had about futuristic cyborgs with their faces falling off, shambling after you across an apocalyptic wasteland. Only, here, they're all in the nude.
A warning: these being sex dolls, some of the images at the linked site are a little NSFW.
