Today in “this wasn’t real already?” a company is developing a virtual sex game for “fully-immersive erotic encounters” after a wildly successful Kickstarter funded the sort of technology they’d like to jack into.
Co-Founder and creative director of Sinful Robot, Jeronen Van den Bosch, is working through the uncanny valley to deliver a sensory experience that replicates the look and, yes, feel of reality, without pulling the viewer out of the experience,
no pun intended pun intended.
Van den Bosch is recruiting animators, programmers, and “anyone who loves working on cutting edge technology and isn’t afraid of working with spicy content.”
This is what went through my head just now:
The Oculus Rift project was insanely successful on Kickstarter, only intending to grab $250,000 but instead got $2.4 million. So, yeah, here we go. Virtual sex. That train is never late, you know?
What is your take on the virtual sex industry? Do you think people will jump on the bandwagon or is it just a trend?
