Taking 3-D to the next level

You see that photo at right? OK, sit back if you will and let your imagination take over for a few minutes. Could you imagine the possibilities? Perhaps ultimately someone’s animated avatar could be present (by proxy) in the very same room as you through the use of robotics and digital technology. Not only might it add an unprecedented and enhanced experiential dimension to sex in MMOs, but maybe one day people will be designing their own private digital environments inside their own physical-world living spaces (ie. via augmented reality), which can then be used to interact with the avatars of their choosing. On a scale of 1 to 10, how cool would that be? Like a 12? A 13 maybe?

    So basically, two-way sexual telepresence. A good idea! Have to build in an exacting interface that can monitor feedback stresses so that the robot doesn’t accidentally break you while echoing your partner’s movements against your body.

    But ultimately, very possible. Imagine sex rooms where you go, put on a special motion capture and tactile feedback suit, and sexually interact with a robot that represents a real person in a similar room thousands of miles away!

    Sounds like a heck of a business plan to me, and the technology isn’t even too crazy. Probably possible right now with the right startup capital and R&D investment.
