New robotic glove gives you the sensation of touching boobs. So Japanese researchers have developed a robotic glove like device that can simulate the sensation of touching someones boobs.
Now, before you knock it off as an invention of lonely scientists, there’s a serious side and good use to this device. The researchers hope that the device can be used as a training device for medical students to become skilled in breast examinations among other exams that require feeling body parts. [Image Courtesy of Gifu University, Japan] The device makes use of haptic feedback that can simulate realistic tactile sensations in each individual fingertip and hence why the researchers, from Gifu University in Japan, have dubbed their invention a “multi-fingered haptic interface robot.”
Getting enough volunteers for examination practice is simply not possible, especially when the student needs to be able to detect lumps in various areas of the body.

(Credit: FacialNetwork) Soon your face could be your calling card. An upcoming app for Android, iOS and Google Glass called NameTag will allow you to photograph strangers and find out who they are — complete with social networking and online dating profiles. When you spot someone out and about that you want to identify, you can capture their face using your device's camera. The app will send the photo wirelessly to NameTag's server, where it will compare the photo to millions of online records and return with a name, more photos and social media profiles, such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, where the person (or their friends) might have publicly posted photos of themselves.
In the US, it will also match the photo against over 450,000 entries in the National Sex Offender Registry and other criminal databases. Tech That Proves 'Her' Is Not That Far Off. Spike Jonze's new film may be science fiction, but we're practically there.
If aliens were to suddenly descend upon Earth, they might notice most humans have their own glowing box. Each morning, they stand on the train with their necks craned peering at the box, on their way to an office where they sit and stare at a similar box, and then they retire home to watch their glowing box a little more. The extra terrestrials probably would think, "I don't know what that glowing thingy is, but, man, it's special to them. " Virtually Naked: Virtual Environment Reveals Sex-Dependent Nature of Skin Disclosure. The human tendency to reveal or cover naked skin reflects a competition between the individual propensity for social interactions related to sexual appeal and interpersonal touch versus climatic, environmental, physical, and cultural constraints.
However, due to the ubiquitous nature of these constraints, isolating on a large scale the spontaneous human tendency to reveal naked skin has remained impossible. Using the online 3-dimensional virtual world of Second Life, we examined spontaneous human skin-covering behavior unhindered by real-world climatic, environmental, and physical variables. Analysis of hundreds of avatars revealed that virtual females disclose substantially more naked skin than virtual males. This phenomenon was not related to avatar hypersexualization as evaluated by measurement of sexually dimorphic body proportions.

“We started our research seeking men in their 20s who had never consumed pornography,” said Professor Simon Louis Lajeunesse. “We couldn't find any.” However, their efforts were not completely fruitless. The scientists were still able to examine the habits of those men who used pornography (ie. all of them). After interviewing 20 heterosexual male university students who consumed pornography, Lajeunesse found that the average age they were first exposed to porn was just 10 years old.
