Japanese researchers have finally discovered an acceptable use for VR in general, and the Oculus Rift in particular, enabling lonely otaku everywhere to sleep next to a virtual girl – in this case holographic princess Hatsune Miku herself.

Tsukuba University researchers developed the technology “for hospital patients who find themselves immobilised,” implementing rendering with MikuMikuDance (the Miku featured is “Tda” Miku) and using the Oculus Rift as the HMD.

Although the considerable healing powers of Miku are beyond doubt, the many other possibilities offered by this particular combination of technologies seem likely to be even more formidable in the coming years…

    This has opened up the perfect solution: put the device on those lonely otaku, and put it on sex videos--after which, have them use a "custom" onahole which is actually just a girl stuck in the wall. No pulling out, no condoms, no birthrate drop.

    Hopefully it won't be a game of death like it was with SAO. What would they do without all of those otaku?

    I only regret that most of us will probably be dead before we reach the stage of affordable, realistic robotic bodies to house the souls of our waifus.

    But sufficiently advanced A.I. software is on the horizon, so we can at least have virtual companions in our computers.

    She won't be able to go on real date with you. But she will be able to truly interact with you, with all the wit and charm that real women don't possess anyway.

    She won't be able to cook you a delicious dinner, waiting for you to come home at night. But you'll be able to sit down to your screen and share a meal with her, like in all those staged Lonely Day photos, only this time it's real.

    She won't be able to snuggle against you on a cold winter night. But her smiling face will be there to bid you "Good morning!" when you wake up.

    She won't have her own autonomous body. But she will love you and the time you spend together.

    There are degrees of waifus we're are prepared to accept.

    Hehe... not sure if the post is serious or silly...
    "She won't be able to go on real date with you. But she will be able to truly interact with you, with all the wit and charm that real women don't possess anyway." Yeah, women get bitchy, emotional... as do guys. Its odd to complain about real women, so there is an attraction for an artificial "pretend" personality based off of only the GOOD parts of real women? Hey, sometimes I'm in a foul/upset mood and been an asshole to my wife... goes both ways.

    1. Dates - take the AI with you on mobile phones or use a portable kind of Oculus Rift with advanced augmented reality that adapts better to your surroundings

    2. Cooking and food - 3D Printer?

    3. cuddling - USB connected dakimakura?

    4. ????

    5. psychological damage! :D

    Here is the thing with prositutes and strippers... there is no actual feelings for you, its not real. Rubbing their REAL tits in your face ($20 usuallY) or getting a blowjob, etc is no more exciting to them than taking a shit, other than they are getting paid.

    Same for fake-AI-GF. Oh yeah, my wife does cook. And no USB or power required for sex.

    I like my anime porn... but its still nothing compared to a real girl gripping your body and cooing or other vocal effects as your shove your dick into one of her holes... and leave REAL girl juices on your sheets... but of course, then YOU have to wash the sheets dammit!

    That's now. Soon you will be able to, and in a long time you probably will be able to have kids with her.

    Pity we don't have Star Trek level holographics. One holographic emitter + knowledge of computers = Otakus dream.

    Neither one nor the other, perhaps the most incredible step would be access to the brain ...
    Once fully accessed when you no longer feel the difference between fake or real sensations ..Or even if what you sees is real
    At an even higher level, their memories, as well as Remember Me. Game (with beneficial results or not!)
    Meanwhile conform us to see Miku snoring and drooling in bed .. in a loverlabs version something more interesting ..

    If they give me 13 years old loli I'm willing to marry her and have kids. Otherwise - enjoy your aging society.
