Oculus Rift gets more virtual reality porn with Red Light Center

Adult entertainment and technology have gone hand in hand throughout history. That’s why Utherverse Digital is announcing today that its 3D animated virtual world, RedLightCenter.com, will soon run on the Oculus Rift virtual reality platform.

RedLightCenter.com is an X-rated world where players can engage in virtual sex and all sorts of other adult fun. It has been around for more than a decade, but with version 2.0, the world will be viewable with virtual reality goggles such as the Oculus Rift. That means the animated world will be a lot more immersive and feel like you’re really there, said Utherverse chief executive Brian Shuster, in an interview with VentureBeat. The X-rated world may very well be the first massively multiplayer online world to debut on the Oculus platform.

Utherverse is unveiling the PC-based 2.0 version of RedLightCenter.com at the Xbiz 360 adult entertainment conference in Los Angeles this week, and Shuster said the new virtual world should be ready to launch at the end of the month at the Adult Video News (AVN) show in Las Vegas. So far, the relatively poor animations of the RedLightCenter.com have proven a potent attraction. RedLightCenter.com has had 12.5 million registered users since 2004, and its related franchisees outside the U.S. have drawn another 12.5 million registered users, making for a grand total of about 25 million registered users, Shuster said.

“This is a spectacular market for virtual reality,” Shuster said. “As soon as the Oculus consumer version comes out, we’ll be ready. You’ll be able to do pole dancing, lap dancing, and full-on hardcore.”

Vancouver, Canada-based Utherverse’s main competition is Internet video porn. But he says the quality of the 3D-animated art has steadily improved to the point where the avatars, or virtual characters, look real.
