IRVINE, Calif. — Software developer Sinful Robot plans on debuting its first erotic encounters episode next year after consumers are introduced to the Oculus Rift, a headset that offers an immersive virtual reality experience.

The Rift headset, which is set to ship to consumers next year, features full 3D stereoscopic vision and sensors that accurately tracks every movement.

While still under development, the headset is estimated to sell for between $500-$800. Oculus, the developer and manufacturer, was able to garner $2.4 million in startup funds this year through a Kickstarter campaign.

While the lion's share of software sales from the Rift headset likely will be drawn from gamers wanting advanced virtual reality, Sinful Robot is working the XXX angle, complete with nudity and hardcore sex.

"For the first time, consumers will be brought to an immersion level using the Oculus Rift, and we will employ cool tricks to seek out all sorts of emotions from users,"  Jeroen Van den Bosch, Sinful Robot's co-founder and creative director, told XBIZ.

But those cool tricks won't be the only reason to subscribe to Sinful Robot's software; each episode will tell a story leading up to no-holds barred sex.

"We're going to be much more than porn," Van den Bosch said. "Think of the episodes like those in 'Californication,' where the man has this crazy adventure. But with Sinful Robot, you're the one in that interactive adventure, you're the one at the center of action and you're the one who's going to have that spicy sex."  

Van den Bosch said that after the first episode, Sinful Robot will release an episode every two months with its sixth episode serving as the finale for the season.

"We're aiming to sell each episode for $9.95, and a whole season for $29.95," Van den Bosch said.

So far, Van den Bosch's Irvine, Calif.-based startup is in the beginning phases to create the next generation erotic adventure video game, and he is actively recruiting 3D programmers, artists and character animators in anticipation of the first episode's release.

Oculus Rift got off the ground earlier this year when John Carmack, founder of id Software and the creator of Doom, Wolfenstein 3D and Quake, showed off the headset at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles and later finding investors through Kickstarter.
