Tokyo Game Show is Asia’s biggest games convention and one of the biggest developments on display is based in Virtual Reality games and technology.
Japanese developer M2 Co. Ltd have created 3D modelling and animation software called E-Mote. The tech allows you to create 3D characters that look like 2D illustration. Once built, you are free to interact with them through your VR headset.
The concept has many applications by M2 decided to show off the tech in a slightly disturbing. M2 took a mannequin to the show that looked like one of E-Mote’s characters and added sensors. Sensors on the character allowed visitors to interact with the real and virtual world together. Unfortunately, as is always the way with these things, sensors were also placed on the characters breasts leading to the mannequin being groped.

We are pretty sure that someone will take M2’s E-Mote and make some kind of game for VR that allows this kind of interaction with characters. It is also pretty likely that it will only see the light of day in Asia, especially after developers chose not to release games in the West like Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 due to complaints by people who would never play the game anyway. You can, of course, import these titles direct from Asia.
