Tyger Drew-Honey is brand new to virtual reality. But all that’s going to change. With high tech VR headsets anticipated to become broadly accessible within the the next couple of months, Tyger investigates how it could possibly change everything – from how we interact with our buddies to how we have sex.
He encounters one of the most successful virtual universes playing 3DX Chat and has his own life-like avatar produced with help from Brian Shuster of HoloGirls. Then he meets the guy who makes robot sex-dolls you can program with your tablet to be an ideal partner. ‘If you don’t want her to be smart she won’t be smart, if you want her to be shy she will be shy.’.
