Is Holographic Porn Still the Future?

VR porn is well on its way to becoming mainstream, but it wasn’t all that long ago that we were being promised that holographic porn would be easily beamed into our lives without the need for a headset at all. Can the best VR porn on offer today deliver as good an experience as the promised future of holographic porn?

The idea of holograms – not adult ones necessarily – is one that has been around for a long time in one form or another. In the adult world, bringing viewers closer to the action is always desirable, so when the notion of live CamSoda’s ‘Holo Cam’ experiences hit headlines at the end of 2016, it’s unsurprising that it resonated with people. A cam performer experience delivered to wherever you are via a small holographic prism attached to your device.

While the idea generated a lot of interest, it’s not one that’s yet made it into any kind of mainstream experience – and there are a couple of reasons why that might be.

For example, the holographic cam sessions resulted in a hologram that was approximately half the size of the display of the device that it was connected to – half a small phone or tablet screen really isn’t very large.

Another problem that holographic porn faces in comparison to VR porn sites is that the technology still produces relatively low-quality images. Just take a look at that screencap… it’s not much of a comparison to immersive 4K or 5K VR porn is it?

Plus, although you don’t need a headset, you do still need a holographic prism which doesn’t really feel any more convenient.

CamSoda isn’t the only company to experiment with the idea of adult holograms – Holodexxx also touted its holographic avatars at around the same time, but the commercial launch has been put on hold for now while more research is done.

That last point is one that seems like the common thread through holographic technology, and one that’s key to virtual sexual technology – immersion is key, and low-res video simply won’t deliver what’s required for a real feeling experience.

Holographic live cams or even interactive sex via teledildonic devices still seems like it’s a fair distance away. Until then, we always have VR and Mixed Reality porn to keep us occupied.
