Virtual reality has been taking the market by storm but augmented reality has yet to really catch up to VR. That could soon change now that DreamWorld, a startup that is just 2 years old, has launched a $399 DreamGlass AR headset.
The startup is trying to make quality AR more accessible to users. This headset is said to provide a 90-degree view with 2.5K resolution. When you compare this to the HoloLens by Microsoft, offering a view of 35 degrees, you can see how much of an advantage this startup will really have over the HoloLens.
In addition to the 90 degree view and 2.5K resolution, the DreamGlass AR Headset also features HDMI and USB ports so that it can be used with a computer or a smartphone. This makes it a cross-platform headset which is a feature many users will notice right away; and be very happy about.
What’s the Biggest Takeaway?
The largest takeaway from this AR headset is by far the cost. $399 for the DreamGlass headset is significantly lower than the HoloLens’ current cost of $3,000. Obviously, many people cannot afford this. DreamWorld wants to make AR more accessible to ‘everyone’ by offering lower, more affordable prices. The first unit of DreamGlass AR headsets is said to be shipped out to developers by late June.
Even the Magic Leap AR headset will likely be higher as the company claims they will offer multiple versions in various price ranges, with the …
ARPorn.com in collaboration with BaDoinkVR has released an augmented reality demo featuring a real 3D person, not a computer-generated likeness, something that has not been done before.
The continued pursuit of integrating augmented reality into daily life has just taken another large step forward. Augmented reality pioneers ARPorn.com, have teamed up with virtual reality porn studio BaDoinkVR to create an AR demo clip featuring porn star Susy Gala that showcases some of the capabilities of the technology to date.
Augmented reality (AR) uses technology to overlay visuals, sounds, haptic sensations, and even smells on the real world around the viewer, providing an enhanced or “augmented” experience. Up until now, AR has been used for tasks such as layering 3D computer generated graphics over reality, or simpler tasks such as displaying text notifications into our peripheral vision.
Augmented reality promises to offer amazing breakthroughs in many industries, and none more so than the pornography industry, which is ready to use the technology and deliver immersive experiences that are straight out of a science fiction movie.
AR glasses such as the Microsoft Hololens, or Smart devices like phones and tablets can be used to view most current augmented reality creations. In the case of Smart devices (phones or tablets), anything that has a forward-facing camera can be used, including mobile VR headsets like Google Cardboard or Samsung GearVR so long as the front cover can be removed to expose the camera.
Abyss Creations, the company behind the popular site RealDoll, have launched RealBotix, a robotic sex company. The company has created a new love doll for fans. Users can attach artificial robotic heads (that are also intelligent) to a silicon body of their choosing. A new app from the company also lets you customize different features of your love doll; personality traits, appearance, etc. Now, users can get excited about the AR and VR experiences coming soon in the app that allows users to create and interact with their virtual love doll.
Harmony AI App
For the past decade the company has constantly been developing the app so they can provide something that is innovative and excites users, delivering a satisfying experience.

The company is still working on the details of the program and anticipates making this program available within the next 3 months.
While the connection between the two realities that are virtual and augmented is no secret or mystery, but there just may be a limitation on this connection. There are many things happening in the world of virtual reality and right now you’ll find some tools available that help you port apps between the two platforms easily. Just because you can do it doesn’t mean it should be done…
Let’s take VR Kanojo for example. This VR girlfriend game interacts with users in a variety of ways; many rather creepy or unsettling. IVR, a virtual reality content development company in Japan, recently showcased a take on this same game, but in augmented reality.
In a video preview they posted on YouTube you are in a virtual environment with a Japanese girl. She’s giggling and at various times shows surprise while interacting. They haven’t yet provided detailed information regarding how the app would work. If it’s following the footsteps of the VR game version then AR users may not be too excited for the ‘new’ take on this game.
AR apps that are sexual in nature would obviously come to light, just like the existing VR sex apps. However, it’s the difference in the realities that makes all the difference in the correct platform for this type of game. There are lots of users that enjoy the VR games in their own private quarters, living out their odd fantasies with their virtual girlfriend. Bringing such a real-world like environment to the ‘real’ …
The Virtual Reality Porn Heavyweight Discuss How Porn is Driving their Advancements in the VR/AR Category
Leading adult VR companies, VR Bangers, announce their plans to expand into the augmented reality market. This announcement coincide in conjunction with releases of images of a light-weight and affordable AR headset similar to Google Cardboard. The headset is to be used with mobile device through their online streaming service. Support for AR porn prototype will arrive in the next few week, as they are wrapping up last minute in-house testing.
The company is currently filming their first episode of AR porn video, while currently no other adult companies have entered the space. VR Bangers will be the first ever AR porn company. It seems that many think it’s certainly too early and costly, to that the market and technology simply wasn’t ready enough. VR Bangers takes the lead to solve these challenges, by partnering with startups around the world. They aim to produce true-to-life AR porn content filmed directly from live actors through 360 degree volumetric data.
While volumetric video capture is not new to the mainstream entertainment industry, the VR Bangers team have made huge strides to advance applications of the technology. The company released a short demo as a teaser for a full length film to be featured next month. VR Bangers CEO, Daniel Abramovich, teased that the company may have more up its sleeve. He said in a statement,
“We’re working with a lot of promising startups making very interesting …

The day of being able to have sex with a hologram of your favorite porn star is fast approaching with how quickly technology is advancing. The benefits of augmented reality porn, if successful, can by far outweigh the benefits of virtual reality porn.
Benefits of Augmented Reality Porn
Augmented reality porn is going to be more versatile than regular virtual reality porn. With virtual reality headsets you are grounded to a single place and must keep up with where the model in the video goes whereas with augmented reality you have more freedom and do not have to stay in one place.
With augmented reality pornography, it isn’t like watching a video that is happening right in front you but rather it is really happening in your world. You are able to be completely aware of what is going on around you and the only difference is that you can place a smoking hot porn star in the room with you and only you see her. This technology will open endless possibilities for the adult entertainment industry. Augmented reality technology will be able to fully make use of the user’s environment and satisfy them in unimaginable ways.
This headset allows for hands free action so that you can get the most out of your interactive experience. Although you do not have to use your hands to interact with the hologram or enjoy the augmented reality porn alone it does make the experience all the much better.
Brings the Fantasy to Your World
Augmented reality is different from virtual reality because instead of transporting you to a whole new virtual world to experience and play out your fantasies, it brings the fantasy directly to your world by layering images so that you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your own house.
Your surroundings stay the same meaning there are less hazards such as that of tripping on furniture and other risks like those that come with using virtual reality instead. With virtual reality you move around not knowing what is happening all around you. You can still interact with the world when using an augmented reality headset while also watching all of your fantasies play out and unfold right before you. This will also reduce some of the negative side effects of VR like motion sickness.
Watching is Easier
Watching augmented reality pornography is easier because, as said above, your surroundings do not change. You can appreciate your favorite porn star from your very own bed. With augmented reality your favorite porn star can appear right on your own bed just waiting to fulfill your desires which cannot be done with virtual reality.
The best thing about augmented reality is that you are not confined to one area like with virtual reality. You can leave your home and fill the world around you with sexually charged holographs and pictures that only you can see. A business known as Pink Visual has even played with this idea quite a bit although it was with smartphone technology.
Differences Between VR and AR Porn
Augmented and virtual reality are the newest things to hit the technology scene and they seem to be quickly pairing up with the adult entertainment industry. These technologies are state of the art and are both also completely different from one another. It is possible that this will cause a divide between the two. The purpose of this article is to distinguish the differences between the two to allow people to decide on which one is better than the other, augmented reality or virtual reality.
The first question is what exactly is virtual reality pornography? The biggest thing about this type of adult entertainment is that everything happens right in front of the user and instead of just observing, the user gets to actively participate in what they are seeing.
All the person has to do is put a virtual reality headset on and they are transported to a whole new world where all of their wildest dreams about sexual encounters can come alive before them. This technology brings fantasy to life and shows the user exactly what they are wanting to see.
While virtual reality sex does not beat the real life thing, there are some people that will likely say it comes close. Virtual reality is not meant to replace reality but simply supplement a person’s sex life and allow for them to fulfill their sexual needs and desires. This gadget is very high end and perfect for those without a significant other to spend time with and who are tired of solo sessions.
This technology is not likely to have an influence on a person’s real life performance with a partner; it is similar to jerking off while looking at a naughty magazine when it comes to morals only a tad bit better. Moral issues could become a problem if the user becomes dependent on the technology although the likelihood is very slight. Virtual reality has so much potential and has not come anywhere near reaching its peak.
Is AR porn better or worse? Augmented reality is very different from virtual reality. You can project the hologram of a hot person whether it be someone made up, you know, a porn star, or celebrity into the room with you to interact with. Unfortunately, the technology is still really new so it has limitations but it has an insane amount of potential when looking at future capabilities. This technology will be able to provide users with the most realistic experience yet.
Augmented reality cannot recreate the environment around the user like virtual reality which can make it seem a lot less exciting however you get to enjoy your sexual fantasies from the comfort of your own home or wherever else you would like so it should be seen as a plus. You will also get less motion sickness because your brain can understand the enviroment easily.
When it comes to environment and surroundings, with augmented reality you do not have to worry about being confined to one area or tripping over furniture like you would with virtual reality. Most of the applications and videos associated with augmented reality technology are rather basic and boring at the moment because everything is still so new and in the works still which is kind of disappointing however it probably will not be long before AR is more exciting than VR with how fast technology makes advances in today’s times.
