From the department of "you know this cool tech is going somewhere sleazy fast" comes the Cyber Figure Alice from Geisha Tokyo Entertainment. The kit, along with your own Windows XP PC and webcam, gives you the ability to manipulate an anime-like virtual character decked out in maid clothing (yes, like the ones that line the streets of tech mecca Akihabara).
The manipulation (groping?) takes place on your real world desk, and (contrary to the image holograph-like image shown below by the company) you view the action on your computer screen. Pricing has yet to be announced, but when this product hits the Japanese streets in the fall, anticipate a healthy drop in upskirt camera crimes and train-based chikan (pervert) incidents.
