It was only a matter of time, really. We tried the Oculus Rift, a virtual-reality headset meant for gaming, at this year’s CES, and found it pretty amazing. And wherever there are amazing advances in technology, porn that takes advantage of it will follow.
Sinful Robot, a startup based in Irvine, California, recently formed with the stated aim of bringing “immersive virtual reality erotic encounters” to the Oculus Rift platform. The company, which is hiring, in case you’re interested in being on the cutting edge of erotica, kicked things off with the launch of its website and a post on Reddit, which quickly garnered thousands of upvotes and crashed Sinful Robot’s blog. There isn’t much information on what kind of content they’d be creating, or how it would use the Oculus Rift’s virtual reality to make a new kind of “erotic encounter.”
That makes sense, because we’ve seen very little of what the Oculus can do. When I tried it out, the only “game” was a snowy castle to walk around. The base is there; you can look left and right and up and down and the camera responds. But this is a totally new platform and while Oculus has the verbal support of some high-profile members of the gaming industry, we really don’t know what it’ll turn into.
