It Finally Happened: There Is An Oculus Rift Sex Simulator

Welcome to 2013. NSFW video inside.

Over the weekend, in Tokyo, the group VR Japan hosted an Oculus Rift Game Jam.

These events, which are common in countries where developers have access to early versions of the headworn virtual reality display, are occasions for creative thinking about ways to apply the Oculus to generate immersive new gaming experiences.

In that spirit, someone at the Tokyo Oculus Jam created a Rube-Goldberg-like Oculus-enabled sexual contraption. The device attaches a Novint Falcon—a grip-based, haptic controller—to a Tenga, a Japanese industrial masturbator. Used as intended, the user would insert his penis into the Tenga, which would be manipulated by the Falcon. All the while the user views on his Oculus some sort of visual stimulation synced to the movement of the hybrid Falcon/Tenga.

In the first [0:31 minute] video, that movement is apparently meant to simulate a hand job. In the second [removed by YouTube due to content], accompanied by the rocking of a portly demonstrator, it appears to simulate vaginal intercourse.

Whether or not Japanese people are having less sex, it’s easy to imagine a consumer device that does what this prototype does, and the syncing of that device to the cornucopia of streaming pornography on the internet. And that is a frightening thought indeed.
