The presence of M2 Co. Ltd (makers of 3D modeling and animation software E-mote) at Toyko Game Show 2016 has stirred up quite a bit of attention as their booth possessed a mannequin that could be groped by visitors, a VR experience that proved so popular that the mannequin’s touch sensors became broken in a single day due to over-stimulation.

The VR simulation was meant to demonstrate the capabilities of E-mote, allowing players to touch the mannequin anywhere and watch the anime girl in the headset (Isla from Plastic Memories in this instance) react accordingly, an innovation that will surely let otaku become even closer with their beloved 2D girls.

An old video depicting E-mote in action:

The presentation has unfortunately gotten the developer in trouble with Tokyo Game Show’s organizers however, who have banned the groping aspect from M2’s booth to preserve the event’s family-friendly atmosphere, a rather simple change considering the mannequin’s sensors had already been broken:


Regardless, the mannequin’s ordeal has demonstrated that virtual reality is rapidly becoming a widespread phenomenon.

    I still think it's sad that guys have little choice but to make robo women and virtual women.

    No, Isla broke from too much harassment.

    Where is her partner when she needs him?

    Trying to see if Isla can turn on to see if she would let him drop off holiday dinner to her shrine so he can make extra. 🍝

    of course, it's becoming a phenomenon. people want first hand experience and not longer want to play the old ways for various reasons like wanting a second life or something like that.

    I'm not surprised that virtual reality is "becoming" a widespread phenomenon because it always has been. It's been in Science Fiction for as long as anyone can remember. Holo Decks in Star Trek, Tron, etc. Everyone has always wanted virtual reality to be a thing.

    We still don't really have the tech for what we want out of virtual reality but people seem to be willing to settle for what they can get their hands on... No pun intended.

    This is Japan trying to fight the overpopulation of the world.

    Overpopulation is a complicated problem. Countries like japan and wealthy white countries have shrinking populations; they need more babies, not less. Africans, on the other hand, have explosive population growth.

    The main issue of overpopulation is that there is too much of the wrong kind of people, and this technology will only make the problem worse, as the the root of the overpopulation problem will can't afford it.

    This technology is a blessing for many of us.

    You guys need to stop blaming anime for low population ''crisis'' in japan.. There are other major factors that are contributing to this ''problem''. Due to their stressful working culture, people are getting less interested in getting married and having kids. Not to mention that child support is expensive.

    In the future, regenerative medicine could easily heal our bodies,slowing ageing process and restoring our lost body parts such as the foreskin,etc.

    I suggest you folks lay off with this conspiracy theory nonsense about depopulation agenda and just enjoy your life.

    A person who believes science fiction will be achievable for people like him is calling other people conspiracy theorists. Get some self awareness lol.

    You can't blame a race of people for the advantages they are born with. The only difference is the strength in numbers, how much that strength is willing to take, and what is left for anyone beyond that circle.

    it's advantage of location. Africa overall is incredible dry for whatever reasons, europe has considerable water reserves and it's easier to bring food to the table, that's why europeans could develop the sciences in the first place.

    Well given political instability and bad or unaffordable health care in many of those countries they have a much higher mortality rate, it might even out in some cases.

    I'm sure the zionists and their proxies are working around the clock trying to shrink the world population to whatever state/composition is desired. Hence, many violent conflicts happening around the world.

    I had a coworker in Utah that went on a legitimate dating site, and the women was going to set him up for money/shelter. She became pregnant and the guy left her. She was going to sleep with him and then pin him as the father. Luckily he could she her showing and called her on it. She then told him everything.

    A lot of those sites are mostly guys, paid employees, or bots. I'm sure they sell most of your data anyway, so I don't think you're missing out on anything.

    Most of the sites are just in it for the money anyway.
