Posted by in categories: augmented reality, media & arts, robotics/AI, virtual reality

99% of the following speech was written by ChatGPT. I made a few changes here and there and cut and pasted a couple of paragraphs for better flow. This is the prompt with which I started the conversation:

Write a TED Talks style speech explaining how AI will be the next cross-platform operating system, entertainment service, and search engine as well as source of news and accurate information. Elaborate further in this speech about how this future AI could produce tailored entertainment experiences for the end-user. Explain its application in creating real-time, personally-tailored and novel media including mixed reality, virtual reality, extended reality, and augmented reality media as well as in written fiction and nonfiction, music, video and spoken-word entertainment for its end users. Write a strong and compelling opening paragraph to this speech and end it memorably. Add as much detail as you can on each point. The speech should last at least 15 minutes.

Posted by in categories: sex, virtual reality

A sex startup says it’s created a VR-enabled masturbation pod for companies that want to make their employees very uncomfortable, very quickly.

Stripchat, a porn site, announced in a blog post that it’s developed something it’s dubbed a “Wank Pod” to give company employees a place to engage in a little office onanism. The company even installed one in their own workplace, and plans a commercial roll out in the future.

“Each ‘Wank Pod’ is planned to come fully equipped with masturbatory accessories, including a 4K LED screen to watch VR cams boosted by Dreamcam’s technology, an Oculus Quest VR headset, lotion, tissues, and more,” the startup wrote in the announcement.

Posted by in categories: internet, virtual reality

Modern-day headsets and apps could be the key.

Virtual reality (VR) may soon be the way we use the internet. There are misconceptions about who can and cannot use the technology. Trying out headsets and apps is a great way to know if the technology suits your needs.

If you or someone you know only has one functional eye, and this has been keeping you away from exploring the world of virtual reality, then here’s a little surprise for you. VR experiences are not majorly affected if you do not use both of your eyes.
