Augmented reality (AR), the combination of virtual worlds and reality, is a cool concept that leads to useful applications in navigation systems, medicine, architecture and many other fields. Geisha Tokyo Entertainment Inc. [JP] now found a way to help all single otaku overcome their problems in finding a real girl friend.
Their alternative to heal loneliness 2.0 is called “Dennou Figure ARis”, or “Cyber Figure Alice” in English. This is how it works: Buyers receive the AR software, 2 cybersticks and 2 cybercubes. Put one of the cubes in front of the computer, point a webcam at it and the screen will display a 3D image of Alice standing on top of the cube.
Using the cyber sticks, you can then “touch”, caress and (naturally) peep at your new girl friend. It is even possible to undress Alice and change her clothes.
This unbelievable example of otaku madness will be sold in Japan starting this fall. As there will most probably no language barriers, I assume “Cyber Figure Alice” will be soon offered by American and European web shops specialized in Otaku products as well.
