Sadness: Guy Creates Virtual Girlfriend He Can Take Out On Dates Using Kinect, Video Glasses, Zero Self Respect

virtual-girlfriend-sadness.jpg

Wow, of course you took her to a playground YOU PERVY WEIRDO.

This is a video of a guy demonstrating his virtual reality girlfriend. She was created using a hacked Kinect, some video glasses, and a heaping scoop of sad, pervertedness. Her actual avatar is Hatsune Miku, a Japanese virtual reality pop star, and the object of more than one misguided man's affections. *sweeping air in a bear-hug* I SAID SHE'S MINE, BRO -- WE'RE HUGGING RIGHT NOW. Just watch the video for more sadness than you could shake a virtual stick at, including the sicko actually slapping her on the head the 2:05 mark. No wonder he doesn't have a girlfriend, he can't even treat a virtual one right. I don't even wanna know how many Tomigatchis he's killed.

Hit the jump for the WTF'ery in progress.

Thanks to Bradley, who agrees brobro should probably stop spending so much time making virtual girlfriends and more time brushing up his personal ad writing skills.

    You´re a looser man. . . write positive things, he did something quite awesome. The one that a needs a life is you

  • reesesupreme

    Oh come on, girls, don't act like you're not interested in the potential of having a guy pay 24/7 attention to you!

  • lorobird

    Well if this psycho hits his virtual girlfriend, I can only hope he will always remain alone, forever and ever and ever, because I don't even want to imagine what he expects from a human woman.

    Technology at the service of misogyny, isn't it beautiful.

    imagine a zelda game like this????? or a zombie game??? i just got a gaming boner...a goner.

  • Who cares? I'm just going to wait until someone invents a Bioprinter like on Eureka. Someone get on that shit, right now.

  • Everyone who left a comment here bashing this shit is a major hypcrit.

    Imagine in a couple of years when you can have pornstars doing the same, just you program a lapdance or whatever.

    Put on goggles, get lapdance by X hot girls at the same time for the same price as a gameboy.

    You
    Will
    Use
    It

    Also imagine the kinds of games you can get out with this kind of VR, Zombie Survival anyone? IN REAL FUCKING LIFE? WITH REAL GUNS?

  • lorobird

    Except some of us arent hypocrites, we are normal people who see pornstars as exploited human beings. See, you have misogynists, like you and the dude in the video, and human beings with empathy and compassion who puke at the thought of exploiting and objectifying others.

    Don't think that everyone is as fucked up and needy as you are, friend.

  • Ickolith

    Ok so I'm looking at the video but I haven't quite decided if I actually want to watch it yet.

  • Ickolith

    Watched it, I was not prepared.

  • what he is doing with her is wrong but honestly we would all love a virtual vocaloid like that but not for those uses

  • Am I the only one that absolutely loves this? I love Hatsune Miku. This guy gets girlfriends... like a boss.

  • that asshole gryphon

    So, did anyone who can read japanese actually translate this story or are people just ASSUMING that it's a virtual girlfriend and not just a "Hey look what I can accomplish with this technology!" Not saying that it isn't true, because I can't read japanese but I love howe everyone jumps on the "omg this guy is a sicko" bandwagon when all I see is a tech demo from someone who is probably far more intelligent and innovative then half of population of the US at least.

    This could have some actual beneficial applications in fact. Take people who have a fear of being alone, or being out doors, or being around strangers. Or how about virtual meeting space, where two or more people across the world from each other can share a "real" meeting space. Then there's also vidya games.

  • that asshole gryphon

    Oh and yes, I'm aware that the english 'subtitle' of the youtube video says "Date" but remember, things can get lost in translation or better yet, it could just be a clever, innocent name for the test run.

  • lorobird

    most def too long, will never read, thxbye

  • Nice technical achievement with available technology.

    Of topic:
    I really don't understand how could someone stand to hear that "music". I'd rather hear some scratching a blackboard.

  • Paul Parten

    It's sad that he had to go through all the trouble to make his own augmented reality girlfriend, but that he did it himself and made her interactive, if not fully reactive, is absolutely amazing. He's sad and lonely, but clearly very talented. If we could get a team of forty or so working on this sort of thing for a year we'd have virtual reality overlays in no time.

  • If this guy drives, I guarantee you it's an ice cream truck filled with little boys' feet.

  • Porcula salvania

    That was pretty cool. The singing voice in the video is the Hatsune Miku vocaloid as well.
