Evidence of the first working prototype for a Kinect sex simulator is just as disturbing as you'd imagine.
It's human nature for us to attempt to use any new technology to satisfy our most basic needs. Many credit the growth of the internet, for example, to the proliferation of pornography across its various tubes. Ever since Kinect was Project Natal, people have been speculating what kind of sex games would be possible with a technology that can detect body parts and project them in a digital space. With the drivers to control Kinect now freely available, dildonics experts like Kyle Machulis have come out to explain how a possible application for interactive sex might work. Kinect has only been out a month and a half, but it appears that we have the first working prototype of a sex simulator. ThriXXX games posted a video today that shows a man using Kinect to "lay hands" on a digital female body.
ThriXXX games has been around since 2001 providing software which allows you to, well, screw anything that you might want. The ThriXXX website calls titles like 3D Sex Villa 2 and Fetish 3D "animated interactive sex games." The company has revamped its technology many times, including support for "interactive sextoys" like the V-Stroker to manipulate the images depicted in the game, among other things.
It seems that ThriXXX is continuing to innovate, by jumping on the possibilities that Kinect might provide for sex games. "Up to now thriXXX has invested millions of dollars into the development making it the leader in interactive character animation and interaction," the website reads. "Something completely new is in development, which will be a huge step away from the current product line."
I think the video above might be just what they were hinting at. Personally, the animation of the ladies seems leaden and devoid of life, but you have to respect the use of technology and the need for privacy.
Blurring out your face so that the internet doesn't know who you are was probably a good idea, Mr. Sex Game Developer.
