Kinect Sex Games Coming Soon

image

A teledildonics "expert" and Kinect hacker thinks that sex games using Microsoft's peripheral are a hair's breadth away.

Kyle Machulis, aka Qdot, writes the blog Slashdong.org. In addition to being an engineer and happily engaged (to a girl!), Machulis is an expert on combining sex and technology. He's been following the hacking of the Kinect sensor closely and has finally gotten around to writing about how he thinks the depth and camera functions of Kinect can be used to create videogames that allow you to, well, make the seXor. According to his tests, Machulis doesn't think that the fidelity of the sensor is enough to pick up smaller objects such as genitalia, but he was successful in getting it to recognize a larger sex toy and his tongue.

"Genitalia, for the most part, are not a major geometric feature of the human body when taken in perspective of physical size (as opposed to say, genitalia perspective in relation to the ego, where they may actually make up more than 100%). Neither are they normally used in the control of videogames," Machulis wrote. "We're probably a few years off of the videogame market being ready for Mike Tyson's Super Cockslap-Out."

From there, Machulis actually does some psuedo-science to figure out how viable a sex game would be. "This is a point cloud rendering of the dildo," he writes. "Each point represents a point of distance in space, and it's colorized based on the RGB image we get back. Remember, we're only getting depth information from a single source, therefore we fall prey to the shadows."

Masturbation is a little trickier, as it will be difficult for the Kinect to distinguish between so many moving parts. "Due to the close contact of the hand with the body, possibly with some inanimate object in between, there will still have to be some calibration and thresholding to figure out exactly where the genitalia versus the hand versus the surrounding body parts are," he said. "Masturbation and general self-manipulation is something that's out of the kinect's normal operating procedure, but I'm sure we'll figure something out. We're smart and bored, after all."

Machulis makes a bold prediction that potential problems will be worked out soon. "None of this will or should stop people from trying. I bet we'll see kinect porn and possibly Kinect Skype services within the month. Just don't come crying to me when you lose side or under boob to breast shadowing or taint viewing due to ball blockage. Yes, there will be depth, but it will be very inaccurate and noisy and I think most people will just want their 2D image back. We've had a few millenia to get that one right, after all."

I'm not sure how I feel about all of this. I mean, the Wii Remote sex toys were one thing, and the Rez trance vibration toy article is pretty hot, but do we really want this to be what Kinect is used for?

MotionSwinger? Really?

Anything that merges technology with consentual sex is awesome in my eyes.

*facepalm* here we go...

penny arcade did a comic about this:

This one is hilarious as hell, either way, Kinect seems to used for more 'procreation' uses. Sounds neat in my eyes.

I'm confused. How is this meant to be made into a sex game? Is it going to be like Dance Central, but with...different types of moves? I'm just not understanding what's to be gained from involving a sensor in the equation...

haha I misread his name as McPhallus at first
Kinda fitting with the article

I FUCKING CALLED IT!!!!!

woot I think I just won like 5 bets I had made with friends

I see the Move as a more appropriate controller when it comes to... Ya know... That... Thing... O_O

I say goddamn.

That's it. There's nothing else to be said.

Kinect Sutra is coming, Penny Arcade can predict the future

How delightfully retarded.

Well, I learned a new word today, and it's a bit creepy.
I wonder how often I can use it before people figure out what it really is. I could say I'm a teledildonics engineer.

Where? and how much????

...............
I just....
What?

bahahahahaha

"We're smart and bored, after all." - that's how all the best (and worst) things are born in the net.

seems more like something i would find on kotaku rather than the escapist, oh well.

first of all why the "(to a girl!)" part? judging from what i have learned straight guys are the first to invent some crazy sex thing, im pretty sure straight guys invented gay sex.
Personally i dont see the need for an interactive sex game, it seems like it could be replaced with a movie, and its not like sex is a tedious boring thing that needs to be made fun with a game.

slashdong.org? really?

ill buy it for something like this

Sex: Better with Kinect!

Yeah, I'm not really buying into that one (either). Could be good for a laugh even by merely existing though.

Cliff_m85:

Well, I wouldn't know about calling all of it awesome, even with Kinect something like or in the vein of that Xbox 360 game[1] would be less-cool-than-strange, but it certainly is harmless.

[1] Apparently not remotely an actual sex sim, but somewhat sexualized it seems.

So.. Gears of War: XXX anyone?

I do believe I was the one that said: 3D TV + Kinect + Porn = Good Times.

Now I kind of regret it.

I can just see the adverts now...legions of people all pelvic thrusting in front of their kinect unit....

0_O

Excuse me a moment...
*wham wham wham wham wham wham wham wham wham wham wham wham wham wham wham wham*
...okay, I'm fine now.

Well, others have already posted the link to Penny Arcade... but I'll post the picture!

Yeah, I can't really see this whole thing ending well.

Immagine a video-game where you have to conquer a girls heart (im thinking Dating Sim here, but there could be a hundred different ways to do this)

then after a few tries you "get" one girl (psicological atraction, phisical atraction, you just want to fuck her brains out, whatever the case the choize is there), and then decide to have all the sex you can have

and with kinect "tracking" your movements they actually make your avatar have sex with such girl (they add a "sex doll" that the game can track to possition your avatar and the avatar of the girl in place)

that way you will be experiencing "phisical stimulation" from a sex toy and visual/auditory stimulation from the game itself, which will be recreating your moves, as such it will rate you on how good you are at moving or making your "partner" horny, lets say, you stick it in the "pooper" to a girl that has never done so before, she will refuse and the game will not display such act, "But" give her the appropiate "stimulus" and you may strike gold!

at least thats what i immagine... this concept seems like the "Digital girlfriend" DVDs but with more "stimuly" anf "input" from the owner...

im at a loss of words,

Damn you RULE 34!! Not even Xbox is safe from the horror of these games

so you can finally hump that digital girl you've been eyeing forever? XD

some1 was gonna think that up sooner or later.

I wonder what achievements you would get for that?

Going the Distance (20g) - Last more than 5 minutes
Windmill (50g) - Successfully perform with Windmill position

Might be awesome...if the game comes complete with with a fully functional porn star.

I don't see the point, really.

If one is into this sort of thing, there are better avenues out there. High quality sex dolls. Fleshlights.

I could see it if it was like Rapelay, an interactive porno. But if I'm taking the time and the effort to try and please something sexually, I'll use a real girl not a machine. (and thus I set my self up for a joke at my expense)

Flying high! (100g) - Your cumshot successfully traveled more then 12 feet.

Finally we're seeing some actual developement!
