    You know how when you're watching a 3D movie, sometimes it feels like you could just reach out and grab the images that are popping out? Thanks to researchers, now you actually can.

    The University of California, San Diego is working on a project called Heads-Up Virtual Reality (HUVR) that literally simulates the sensation of reaching out to a 3D projection of an image and being able to touch and feel it.

    The porn industry could make billions out of this. And yes, I want one.

    ...which raises the question: just how interactive is it? Can you only touch?

    Using a glove I presume, for the vibration feedback mechanism?

    Then perhaps a condom later on that interacts with 3D vision?

    Ha, all of the women in the world would lose their sexual power over us men! As it slips through their grip, men would be in power once again as the women beg for our real-world attention! :evil:
