Virtual girlfriend could end dating woes

HONG KONG, China (AP) -- She needs to be coddled with sweet talk and pampered with gifts, but you'll never see her in the flesh, says a Hong Kong company that's developing a "virtual girlfriend" for new cell phones with video capability.

Artificial Life, Inc.'s electronic love interest will appear as an animated figure on a telephone screen. But she'll require a lot of attention, involving virtual flowers and diamonds, company spokeswoman Ada Fong said on Monday.

The gifts will keep the relationship going from one level to the next -- and even though it's all made up of cold, hard data, suitors will have to pay cold, hard cash for the gifts.

The amounts have yet to be determined, Fong said.

Users of so-called third-generation, or 3G, cell phones who subscribe to the game can send text messages to the virtual woman, who'll respond by voice, Fong said.

If she's neglected, "she'll be unhappy and she won't talk to you," she added.

The game doesn't allow interactions of a sexual nature, Fong said, calling it "suitable for all ages."

The company hopes to develop a virtual boyfriend for women by early next year.

The virtual girlfriend is similar to the popular Tamagotchi "pet" concept developed by Japan's Bandai Co., Fong said.

Artificial Life hopes to launch the service in the English, Japanese and Korean languages in late November. No 3G operators have agreed to offer it yet, she said.

Mie mi se pare genial.

Inteligentza artificiala a avansat atat de mult ca pot dezvolta jocuri de acest gen.
Viitorul este astazi, acesta este viitorul,relatzi virtuale,fara risc de imbolnavire, fara contaminare, cu timpul vor disparea sentimentele, calculatorul va ajunge principalul in orice familie .

Nu vad nimic de rau in asa ceva, este ca un joc oarecare din care ai ceva de invatzat. In copilarie poate totzi atzi avut un tamagochi(animalutz virtual ) caruia trebuia sa ii dai de mancare sa-l faci sa rada, sa doarma si din asta se poate invatza ceva.

Chiar astazi (25 de august) am vazut la tele stirea si au si aratat cum arata tipa si arata cum se duce la magazin la cumaraturi acasa, tot
Un fel de THE SIMS (simulator de persoane adica un joc chemat asha ,e genial)

Repet genial. Sa apara cat mai curand si pe aici.

Mie mi se pare o iditzenie

Daca il prind pe prietenul meu cu asha ceva nu stiu cum va iesi din manutzele mele.
Chiar ca trebuie sa fie disperat un baiat ca sa caute o prietena virtuala.
Daca tot e vorba de prietenie, decat sa stai de vorba pe telefon cu una ( o fata) virtuala cand ma ai aici aproape .
Putem vorbi despre orice si nu trebuie sa imi daruiesti nici diamante(virtuale) si nici flori(virtuale).

Interesanta stire, macar acuma o sa stim ca atunci cand cineva isi cumpara un telefon din acelea de ultima generatie poate avea si asa ceva.

Sa va fie de bine celor care le plac fetele virtuale, pentru ca nu shtitzi ce pierdetzi cu cele adevarate.
