VR Porn is on the rise, and AR Porn is next.
Bad news for Strip clubs. Augmented reality brings strippers into your living room. Augmented reality developer ARPorn have teamed up with virtual reality porn studio BaDoinkVR to create an AR demo clip featuring porn star Susy Gala.
To experience this new AR striptease you need an Android Smartphone, a mobile VR headset such as Cardboard or GearVR (with the GearVR service disabled) and a printout of an AR marker image or the AR marker image loaded on the screen of a tablet.
The AR demo works through use of ARjs and WebGL Polyfill stereo rendering. The image from the Smartphones camera is fed through and used as the scene background in mono. The AR marker (printout) is used to track and determine Susy Gala’s location within the background image.
A stereo left-right video file is rendered onto the marker and Chrome Key removes the green screen from the video. The result is a 3D object contained in a 2D scene. Viewers can then move around and view Susy Gala dancing from multiple viewpoints.
The current AR demo video is 3D but is being rendered into a flat video file and therefore lacks depth. ARPorn.com is currently working on an additional demo clip using volumetric video to create depth. The new demo clip will also not require a placemat, instead of using any flat surface as the AR tracking marker.
This AR demo release from ARPorn features a real person, recorded against a green screen and adapted into augmented reality. Using ARPorn's technology and BaDoinkVR’s content, viewers can now have porn star Susy Gala dancing and teasing in their living room, bedroom, on the coffee table, or anywhere else the viewer chooses. Featuring the image of a real person, and not something computer generated is new, and a big step towards blending the real and the virtual.
Scott Camball of ARPorn.come says, “We see augmented reality as a real game-changer for the adult entertainment industry. I’m not just talking about typical pornography either, but AR stripteases, or AR cam shows, as well. They bring the image of real performers into viewers’ homes for the ultimate in interactivity. That will pave the way for AI hologram relationships. We are all very excited!”
So far though VR Porn will be the predominant new category. The new Oculus Gosimplifies the access to virtual reality adult content immensely, as out lined in our guide on how to watch porn on the Oculus Go.
