VIRTUAL BOYFRIEND,V-Boy ---hits the streets soon...on mobile phones everywhere...courtesy of Artificial Life, a Hong Kong based firm. The company's Virtual Girlfiend is extremely popular in Asia where men love having a girl-2-go on their mobile phones.
V-boy -- AImed at Chicks 15-30
The V-boy™ product line targets the younger female audience between 15 and 30 years of age according to the press release from the firm. But there is no age-verification done -- so if you're over 30 you can have your own V-boy. AND if you're Gay, V-boy may be just what the right guy to take for a walk in West Hollywood.
REEL VS REAL: Darn, he's really a game with 10 game stages--- and we thought he was REAL....but now it turns out he's reel. Like the V-girl™ product the V-boy™ product line will be released in three separate volumes. Volume I with 10 game stages is scheduled for release in an English language version in December 2005.
CUTE DUDES FOR EVERY POSSIBLE CHICK PREFERENCE AND TASTE:
Artificial life execs promise that alll virtual boys will be modeled using the latest texture mapping and motion capturing techniques. The user experience will be comparable in its animations to high quality console and pc games. They add that they have some very cute boys for every possible taste and preferences of our female clients. So far only the blonde surfer dude is online...but we vote for an Antonio Banderos Zorro version and maybe a Tiger Woods style (okay not Tiger he's not single but a Tiger-look-alike).
