Japanese game developer M2 was caught showing off a bizarre virtual reality game at Tokyo Game Show 2016.
The game is a sex simulator that combines virtual visuals with real life sensations from touch.
Capacitive sensors on a mannequin dressed up like Isla from Plastic Memories is how this is achieved. The playtesters were then given the chance to have Isla “react” to their touches and the results are pretty amazing. At one point staff had to warn visitors from excessive touching out of fear that damage may incur.
The technology used is called Emote, which translates real life movement into the digital world allowing players to feel like they are actually interacting with the characters within the game.
