Kinect sensor used to overlay virtual objects into a real world

Even my virtual girlfriend doesn't fancy me: Lonely gamer creates woman he can take on dates (with Kinect sensor and video glasses) and she STILL resists his advances

This is one of the creepiest blurring of the lines between the real and the virtual - and at the same time an incredible technology demonstration.

A Japanese gadget enthusiast has hooked up a Kinect sensor - a device which usually acts as a pair of eyes for the Xbox console, but has been commandeered by the hacking enthusiast community - with a pair of video glasses, which can overlay virtual objects into a real world.

The first thing he does with his contraption? Make a girlfriend, of course.

His partner comes pre-made from a Japanese PC voice synthesiser called Vocaloid, and her name is Hatsune Miku, a popular icon in Japan.

Not good: No-one should ever hit a woman, and Miku does not react happily if you treat her this way
