Perfect for geeks!



"...works by having a projector on the ceiling beam an image of a lady down in that empty space on a double bed.

What makes the INBED impressive is that it has infrared sensors that can detect the position of the live person in bed, and adjust the virtual person accordingly. In other words, the virtual girlfriend will adjust her position to snuggle with you, spoon with you if you lay on your side, and even react to kisses by burying her face in a pillow."

Unfortunately, this is not (yet) on the market. It's an invention by Drew Burrows for display at NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program Spring Show at Tisch School of the Arts. (Ref: gizmodo.com - NYU Student Creates Virtual Girlfriend....)

I think it would be a cool art piece projected on a wall or ceiling.

Map is my virtual girlfriend. I pretend everyday that she is mine.

Shh. Don't tell my wife.

Mark, time for celebration. You can do more than pretend, as Map is actually the model used for this.

I would bring this product home but I already have a beautiful imaginary girlfriend and so far have not been able to convince into having a threesome.

I find it incredibly impressive that someone was able to sell this as a class project. Just imagine the conversation with the professor...
