Motion-detecting sex video games may become a reality for X-rated video game fans.
With the debut of Microsoft’s Kinect, the new body-tracking sensor for the Xbox 360, someone was definitely going to ask: How long until someone makes a Kinect sex game?
That’s the very question posed by both CNet and PC World in recent blog posts.
CNet notes that the device tracks and displays the movements of your full body in games like Dance Central and Your Shape: Fitness Evolved. Speculation about the adult market is now taking off online.
But is Kinect really suited for motion-sensing, virtual sex acts? The answer, for now, is no.
Those like Mr Kyle Machulis, who runs a website devoted to the trend of online hanky panky, said that while the gaming console tracks the human body as a whole, it doesn’t look at “major geometric features” on the body.
In other words, it can’t detect certain anatomical features - which doesn’t bode well for X-rated purposes.
Although Mr Machulis believes that a Kinect sex game is going to be challenging, he predicts that someone will find a way to get the job done.
