VR porn to be offered as room service in Las Vegas

• engadget.com

For decades, people have been renting naughty movies to watch in the privacy of their hotel rooms. Now, with virtual reality becoming more prevalent, one company is experimenting with a combination of the two -- VR porn room service. To realise this X-rated dream, porn studio VR Bangers has teamed up with AuraVisor, a British company that crowdfunded its first headset on Indiegogo and Kickstarter last year. The complete package will soon be trialled in Las Vegas hotels, cost $19.99 a pop, and offer a few different scenarios for people to choose from.

VR Bangers already supports a variety of platforms, including the Oculus Rift and Samsung's Gear VR. The AuraVisor is potentially a good fit because it's cheap and doesn't require a tethered smartphone. The headset is, essentially, a self-contained Android device running a modified version of Google's mobile OS. It has a 5-inch 1080p display and a 100-degree field of view, with access to a custom VR store that's linked to the Google Play marketplace. Such a setup should appeal to customers, especially business folk, who want to leave no trace of their VR escapades on their phone.
