It sounds like something from an episode of Netflix series "Black Mirror" but the prospect of a virtual reality lover could be closer than you think.
San Francisco-based tech company Virtual Mate has launched its VirtualMate system - the world’s first virtual intimacy system.
"VirtualMate is real-time interaction with a life-like virtual character," Jeff Dillon, the company’s CEO and co-founder told British Newspaper Metro.
"Real-time is the key here as all other attempts at this market are with pre-recorded content or a live cam model," said Dillon. "With the advancements in AI our system will know the user’s name, habits, likes and dislikes."
The system works with two parts: A VR headset, through which men can watch digital recreations of real porn stars, and an electronic sex toy that moves in time with the action in the videos, Metro reported.
