A dakimakura that talks!A dakimakura that talks!

I know there are many dakimakura lovers here on MFC so when I saw this article I just had to share it!

Here is the link to the original article: en.rocketnews24...

A few excerpts from the article:

Developer Koichi Uchimura used to be a researcher at Kyushu Institute of Technology. While we’re not sure what precise field of academia he was involved with at the Fukuoka Prefecture university, his current mission in life is developing new technologies with which to “support people’s otaku life.”

No stranger to the allures of anime huggy pillows, or dakimakura, as they’re called in Japanese, Uchimura nonetheless was feeling unfulfilled. “When we’d sleep in the same bed, I’d start to think, ‘I wish she could talk,’ so I wanted to make that a reality.” The result was Rina Makuraba, whose family name is a pun on makura, the Japanese word for pillow.

As shown in the video, the sensor responds differently to different kinds of stroking. Mash your palm over Rina’s chest, and she’ll get upset, saying, “Hey, that hurts!” and “Hey, hands off!” Uchimura even alludes to a cumulative effect, where a continual lack of gentleness will put Rina in such a bad mood she’ll stop talking to you altogether.

On the other hand, a smoother, more measured groping will instead produce a string of increasingly positive reactions.

Despite proudly referring to Rina as his wife in the video, Uchimura seems to have no qualms about sharing, or even selling, his anime spouse, and his campaign on Japanese crowdfunding site Makuake has already raised 302,000 yen (US $2,560) of the 500,000 yen it’s seeking. 20,000 yen will get you your very own touch-responsive dakimakura, featuring either Rina or alternate Ita-Supo stars Shion Kamitsuki and Shiho Natsuki.

Not trying to offend anyone, but I think thats really, really creepy.
I like my dakimakura as much as the next person, but somewhere...I think a line needs to be drawn.
It's a goddamn pillow >_<

Ehhhh to be honest, I find people that are that consumed with 2D characters pretty...sad and disgusting and being one of those people I need one. But idk. I think they could be pretty popular.

A terrified scream will fill the house...

Koru-tan (3年前) #2749602considering I only buy loli dakimakuras, and the idea of stroking my loli pillow is creepy.
Some pillow covers just beg to be stroked and to do whatnot. Perhaps this voice thing will keep me under control a bit xD
