I'm just going to spend the whole time playing with my boobs.

Do I have to be the first one to correct submitter here?

Isn't it awfully nice to have a penis?
Isn't it frightfully good to have a dong?

I wonder if anyone will ever discover a non-masturbation-related reason to use this thing, probably not

Not an uncommon reaction to growing breasts in adulthood.

Physical therapy, dealing with deep emotional issues, senses of identity and exploration. You know, medical purposes for people who aren't you.You, you can stick to using everything to wank with, nobody will notice or care.

It turned out that Demolition Man was the most prescient sci fi movie. Who knew?

Strange, the screenshot in the article is not from video they link to, but that video is also available.

Digg had this story a few days ago and they have the video from the screenshot... with 100% more boobies! ;)

It should come with a warning: Please don't use product around drunk fratboys or there will be a bunch of pictures of you with a penis or asshole in your face or on your shoulder.

I watched the video, and though it seems like it could be interesting, they were lacking any sort of talk from the people who did it, so you really don't know how real it felt, or if they just felt silly about it, knowing that they were putting on a choreographed display and all that.

What gets me wondering is whether they could combine the Oculus with something like the Kinect and do full body tracking along with 3D rendering. You'd have to have something with a lot more power than a standard Kinect to be able to track individual finger motion and all that, but it might feel more real? The only real issue I could see is latency. If there's a noticeable delay between moving your arm and seeing your arm move, your brain is never going to believe it.

Isn't that just a rule for being around fratboys/brodudes in general?

Oculus Rift will let users swap bodies and genders get motion sick from relatively small motions.

With the first dev kit it was a problem for some people, but not everyone. Proper calibration also played a big part, and the overall quality of a particular application. It was never too bad for me (unless drunk, very bad idea), although a lot of vertical movement would eventually cause me to start feeling queasy.

Google crystal cove though, the next version of the rift. WANT!

False.  I have no Taco Bell anywhere near where I live.

Read the book "Ready Player One" if you have not already.  GREAT read, and relevant.

No kidding, I would of thought that "100% more boobies" was pretty clear... sorry! ;)

In all seriousness, the first rule of NSFW anything is you label it NSFW.


Who takes personal responsibility anymore remember?

Good thing this group is working on feminist technoscience. The field hasn't gotten nearly the recognition it deserves.

I'm worried about the teens that will inevitably be wearing a  Rift whilst masturbating, andhow damaged they will be psychologically after beingwalked-in on by siblings or parents, perhaps not even realizing it's happened until they hear their door quickly shut.
