Some people think that humans will one day be wiped off the face of the earth by a giant asteroid. Others think we’ll all slowly become androgynous and simply stop making enough babies.

We at RocketNews24, on the other hand, think the human race will end at the point that men lock themselves away with their virtual reality headsets and Tenga brand masturbation aids hooked up to a laptop, and today we bring you proof that we’re already well on the way to that sad state of affairs.

This post contains potentially NSFW, and also mildly depressing, images.

Combining the Oculus Rift head-mounted display and “touch sensation” Novint Falcon haptic device, one Japanese team taking part in the “Oculus Game Jam” event held earlier this month in Shibuya has created a worryingly complex simulated sex experience.

Although many of our readers will likely already be familiar with the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset, few will have seen the Falcon before. In a nutshell, the device is designed to provide realistic haptic feedback with games and applications, and allows for all kinds of attachments to be connected to it, but plastic handguns are pretty much the main thing gamers are interested in using it with. Here’s a video from its founding company showing how the Falcon is normally intended for use.

Pretty cool, right? And here is how Japan’s “Team Ressentiment” decided to use it…

No, your eyes do not deceive you: those horny boffins strapped a Tenga male masturbation aid to a computer-connected Falcon and built a simple program to simulate sexual intercourse.

The gentleman user simply starts the program, pops on the Oculus Rift headset and inserts himself (sorry) into the Tenga masturbation aid attached to the Falcon, which if it were sentient would probably be crying real tears at this point and wishing it had been bought by someone who just wanted to play Battlefield 4. The idea is that the images on screen respond to the user’s real-life gyrations, and with the head-mounted display on, the lonely male can look all around as if they’re really there.

Coupled with a pair of headphones to provide realistic surround sound, the setup would effectively create one of the most immersive simulated sexual intercourse experiences ever. It will also make the user entirely oblivious to the presence of family members who, after knocking on the door and receiving no reply, wander into the room to find their son/father/husband/uncle grinding away at his computer desk. Alone.

▼ Thankfully, testers remained clothed when trying the setup out.

One would hope that, if this idea were taken further and it became the favourite pastime of horny males all over the world, they would at least follow the above gentleman’s lead and remain as clothed as possible during acts of solo cyber love. We really can’t think of many sights more nerdy and depressing than a man standing in a room completely naked barring a bulky virtual reality headset.

Admittedly, this technology could be used by couples in long-distance relationships, using webcams and their choice of phallic/orifice-shaped attachments to pleasure one another in real-time. But regardless of whether it is ultimately used by couples or singletons, this is one scene that we can honestly say we never, ever want to walk in on…
