NYU student creates virtual girlfriend: When the king is happy, the queen is happy


An NYU grad student, Drew Burrows, has invented a virtual girlfriend, sorta like the Japanese. Since the young man is so consumed with his studies, he doesn’t have the time, nor the patience (presumably), to hold a steady girlfriend—so create one, à la Weird Science!

The virtual girlfriend is a 2D projection, brought to “life” by infrared sensors. She’ll wiggle about and respond to your movements in kind. Food crisis.

Burrows goes to Tisch, the same school my younger, PROM KING brother will attend in the fall. Funsies.
