he video: An independent videogame developer has unveiled a preview of 3D SexVilla, the first interactive sex game for Microsoft's Kinect online. The Australian game will use Kinect's motion sensor technology to allow a player to move a disembodied "hand" over the body of a scantily clad woman. (See clip below.) The effect, one blogger said, is like peeking into the bedroom of The Addams' Family's own creepy disembodied hand, known as Thing.
The reaction: There has been plenty of "hype" about harnessing Kinect for the purposes of virtual sex, says Tracy Clark-Flory in Salon, but this first glimpse is about as "unsexy" as it gets. "Combine the multi-billion-dollar porn industry with today's most advanced technology and all you get is a perverted mime act?" This preview may leave much to be desired, says Lydia Leavitt in TG Daily, but wait until next year, when the company promises to add "full body and hand gestures, voice commands, and real-world sex toy objects like vibrators." Then the controversy will really heat up. Watch the preview below:
