Poster Girlfriend

How many of us as teenagers, or even adults for that matter, looked at posters of movie or music stars and fantasized about what it would be like to be with them?  Except I recall fantasizing about the real person.  I never dreamed about making out with the actual poster.

Apparently some have.

Fascinating technology, but I'll admit that I don't understand the appeal. The interaction is very limited, and even if they do add in the flavor, you're still kissing a screen. And if it's in public, who would really want to kiss something that's been who kissed by who knows how many people? Yuck!

Even so, I'm at least curious how the technology will progress beyond this. How long before we fulfill the predictions of science fiction and have fully interactive companion robots? Time will tell.
