Technologically Unrequited Love
Is it possible to outsource love and relationships to machines? What happens to us, really happens to us when we do?
This is an in-depth look at love and technology, an admittedly weird combination, that cuts to some of the most basic questions about what makes us most human. In it, I look at a weird app for automating texts to girlfriends, as well as Furbies, My Real Baby, and, yep, Japanese anime porn and virtual girlfriends.
All in the interest of exploring a strange new, emerging phenomenon: “technologically unrequited love.”
Oh, and happy early Valentines. 😉
