A virtual reality sex game is on the way
Has technology caught up with libido?
Ready or not, virtual reality sex is on its way in 2013. Sinful Robot is a new, California-based company that's close to unveiling "the world's most immersive virtual reality erotic encounters."
The Heart Beat talked to Jeroen Van den Bosch, the man behind the technology. His company will produce a game that pairs with a virtual reality headset, the Oculus Rift, to bring lonely, libido-driven or just plain curious users a personal, interactive experience. But in this game, it's not so much about the competition.
"The encounters are not about scoring points or completing levels," Van den Bosch told us. "We are putting you in a VR sexual world, where you can live out your fantasies."

Van den Bosch says he first got the idea for a virtual reality sex game when he saw the movie The Lawnmower Man back in 1992.
"The movie had a very bad sex scene involving two people transforming into an alien butterfly and flying into space. It was ridiculous, but it made me think about all the possibilities around VR sexual encounters."

While the idea may have crossed the minds of many, Van den Bosch is making the possibility a reality. He's now recruiting programmers and animators to help complete the development process.
The Oculus Rift virtual reality headset was demonstrated at the Electronic Entertainment Expo earlier this year. At the time, founder John Carmack announced:
"What I've got now, is, I honestly think the best VR demo probably the world has ever seen."
Meanwhile, Sinful Robot is expecting a release in the near future. Van den Bosch told The Heart Beat:
"The first episode will be released in the third quarter of 2013 for free or a nominal fee to cover distribution cost."
