The doll market has certainly underwent changes in the last few years, and the changes will continue with stiffer competition and new and innovative products and manufacturing methods. The companies that survive will certainly have to step up a notch, no matter what level they are at "NOW".  It is looking like this year is becoming the birth year of AI in dolls, this feature will only increase and mature, it will not go away, also seeing more and more dolls "silicone and TPE" with better and newer technologies being used in skeleton designs and standing abilities. These are the core components and technologies needed to become true "Personal Assistants" and that will be their roles in tomorrows world!

As these technologies mature and the price points become lower, the general public will be introduced to dolls that will be able to perform useful tasks that will not have anything to do with sex, this will open the way for them to gain widespread public acceptance, with this widespread public acceptance will come the fall of the last barrier to truly robotic dolls.

 :o Damn! I really hope some reputable person picks to the Ruby line.
This is sad news indeed!

I see the Ruby site is still up.
Does that mean he's found a way to keep it going?

Re: The availability of male dolls debate, has anyone ever thought to ask the various manufacturers how many orders of male vs. female dolls they get? All I have to go by are the meets, but in the six I've attended I have seen only three different male dolls total, all the rest were female (at one single meet the ratio was well over twenty to one!). So going by that I would have to say that offering a larger number of male dolls probably would not have made that much of a difference.
Heaven help me, I have been dating a real human female.
.........And enjoying it!

Half of Sinthetics' sales are male dolls for your information.
Most TPE male manufacturers have come up with male dolls that are selling very well, especially the tall male dolls which are the most popular.

Ruby's problem was not much about the male dolls. It's just a sign they were not open to the male doll market simply. They regularly snobbed the male doll market when we asked them to make one. A decision I respect and honestly, the male doll community is expecting realistic male dolls, we're not much into fantasy looking dolls. It wouldn't have worked. Ruby wasn't much on the menu.

Their main issue was the lack of creations to me. They simply didn't make anything new for years. A company that only offer the same stuff for years get stale at one point. You don't become a great composer, if you only touch the piano keys once every year.

Wish I'd seen this earlier.

My dad had 2 guys come in to build our dolls.
The year following my dad's death they stole about $20k
Of silicone. I lived in a different state and wasn't able to babysit
Them and thus the theft.
I moved everything up to my town and began figuring out how it
Was done. How to build. How to make the right softness of silicone.
But when you are behind in orders due to a theft it leaves a scar
On your reputation. That was how things began to die. No other reason.
Although conjecture is fun it's just conjecture. We now have money
From the sale of our home and are investing in Ruby. Paying back the major theft
By the past manufacturers. We just delivered 6 orders this week. I have
Sculpted and molded 3 new faces that look nothing like my dad's.
I've made new aluminum neck units, upgraded the way our silicone and foam
Unite which makes our dolls more resilient to abuse and this more durable.
I've upgraded many bits of tooling in our studio that make the manufacturing process
Quicker and safer. I wish I could show you all how rickety and cheaply done things were
Before we took over. It was to a point where the molds were in constant jeopardy.

Anyway we are back and fulfilling orders. I am also designing new products and my
Partner (female) is involved as well which could lead to us bringing out a Male doll.

So stay tuned.

Hey Jim,

I am happy to have ordered a Ruby with you few weeks ago.
I am pretty sure that she will be a great doll, following your personal investment (money, time, care and development) in your company.

Don't give up.
