back to article Nookie becomes, um, a virtual reality for Oculus Rift gadget gamers

The fate of human civilisation could now hang in the balance after some filthy-minded gaming enthusiasts in Tokyo showed off a rather ingenious device which allows the male users to have virtual sex. Virtual reality fans flocked to the Oculus Game Jam in Shibuya over the weekend to try out some of the latest gaming inventions …

Re: which allows the male users to have virtual sex

No there's an idea! I remember how in America's Army (the free propaganda game), all players play as Americans, but the opposing team in any given match appear as shadowy terrorists. How about a VR sex game where the other players always appear as hot chicks? It would use an appropriate avatar of course, but also automatically translate dirty talk, so "You make me sooo hard" becomes "You make me sooo wet" and so forth.

Surprised

I am, TBH, surprised it has taken this long for such a device to become available.

However, you would have to have a LOT of trust in the technology to use it. Or be really desperate.

Re: Surprised

Or just open-minded and willing to try new things? Virtual sex with your partner instead of phone sex?

So

The Japanese found the answer. A woman you could turn on easily, turn off when your busy and avoid all the trouble of men not understanding women (we dont feel too bad as women dont understand women too).

If this is the end of mankind then it sounds like we will go happy. And woman kind will be stuck with each other.

I really hope the software is called anna may.

Re: So

Actually, all the Japanese have done is find a way to avoid the costs and physical exertion needed to "entertain" a Realdoll.

At least with the manual alternative you get *some* exercise.

Praise the Japanese and pass the Doritos.

A Midnight Beast clip seems appropriate at this point.

I watched the video

That was some weird s**t. (Right at the end.) I found the entire situation there, as presented, to be very alienating and depressing.

I had something smart, funny and pertinent to write about this, but after careful consideration I've decided.... that's just fucked up. After more thought, how much does it cost?

I guess I am too old

People on /b keep posting pornographic cartoon imagery like this and it is still a head-scratcher for me. Getting busy with cartoon characters stretches my suspension of disbelief to the breaking point.

Someone else here put it more succinctly: Euw

The explanation I've heard before is that they consider it less messy than "real" females, a more uniform "clean" experience.

"Anime cartoons"

Given that nobody has started yelling about the phrase "anime cartoons" being used in the article, I'm guessing the device's target audience hasn't shown up yet.

Or they're.... unable to type at the moment.

Well, there is a market out there -- those people who don't have the ability to take matters in to their own hands.

Novint Technologies

I notice that the linked Wikipedia page for the haptic control has an image with the caption

"A pair of black Novint Falcons. The nearer one has the pistol grip attached, and the further one has the standard ball grip."

If the ball grip is standard then they were obviously intended for this use from the start.

I predict an uptick in Second Life sign-ups once this device can be bought from Target.

Re: Hmm.

If OR worked with Secondlife then they could probably sell 25000 of them right now, as for the other device, there are always the "internet enabled" remote pleasuring devices for both him and her. Add a little software and thousands of people die of starvation and dehydration in a period of weeks .....

Re: Hmm.

It apparently does, at least to some extent. Haven't tried yet though; I'm a bit leery of venturing back there. I spent some time in SL back a few years ago, but eventually quit due to the constant propositioning from bored housewives.

Seriously. It was bizarre.

Suprise!

I own an oculus rift and it's marvelous fun, but a constant problem I have with it is people creeping up behind me in the real world and scaring the bejesus out of me, as once I have my headphones on too my peripheral senses become nonexistent.

It's usually the wife who thinks that its funny to make me scream in surprise.

I dread to think what the screaming would be like if I added one of these to my...ahem...rig.

Prior art

There used to be www.fufme.com some 15 years ago, just in case no one remembers. I suppose archive.org should remember it - go back to 1999 or 2000 (mildly NSFW).

Oh, hell, for the lazy:

I remember that, made me chuckle at the time but I couldn't remember the short url.

I saw that on a pentium 90 that I had to clean porn downloads (done by the boss) every day to claim back enough disk space to do work, ah the memories.

Was never able to look at a beige 5 1/4" drive bay the same way again.

That might explain why

It was reported recently that the younger Japanese generation had gone off sexual relationships and were more "in to" technology
