Using the Oculus Rift VR headset, a LeapMotion pressure sensor, and programmable Arduino control board, a man who goes by the handle “Ryuto” has created a virtual boob-grabbing simulator, complete with a creepy meet-and-grope with a fictional anime character named Mami.

So that he actually had something to squeeze, Ryuto repurposed a mousepad with cushioned “breasts” and equipped it with a pressure sensor to detect the squeezes. As the input is registered in the virtual world, Mami recoils and looks uncomfortable when Ryuto grabs her breasts. (Wouldn’t you?!).

He posted the below video on Japanese video sharing site NicoNico Douga to show how it works. Skip to 0:50 to see the boob grabbing in action:

The first time 28-year-old Scott Austin stole from Subway was after he ran out of money to pay for electricity while his mom was away from home.

The second time was after his girlfriend found out. She allegedly blackmailed him into stealing more money so she could get a boob job, threatening to dump him and turn him into the police if he did not comply, a court was told.

The sandwich chain thief stole up to £4,000 over the course of a year before his employers started to notice missing funds. After discovering CCTV footage of Austin pocketing the cash eight times, the bosses confronted him and he turned himself in to the police, admitting that he hadn’t seen his ex-partner since she threatened him (this time around) to keep her name out of the investigation.

Austin’s defense attorney Lee Mott, at Chippenham Magistrates’ Court in Wiltshire, said: “She sounds like quite a piece of work.

“He knows he has been something of a fool in love. The love of a bad woman has done him no end of damage here.

“When he got to the point where he thought enough is enough, she turned on him and said, ‘our relationship will be over and I will tell police what you’ve done’.

“He has not seen a penny of this. Everything was handed to her.”

Austin, from Chippenham, admitted theft by employee and was ordered to pay back £3,000. He now packages goods for a hardware company, and is probably very, very sad that he didn’t suggest MyFreeImplants.com to his now-ex-girlfriend earlier.

Simple: Don’t wear the same bra two days in a row!

bras

Rotating your bras every day gives the bands time to rest and helps you avoid replacing your bras more than necessary.

An article from The Venusian Glow blog points out that when a bra is worn all day the elastic in the bra band gets stretched out, and it takes time to recover from that stretching. If you wear the same bra every day it will start not fitting as well.

Another reason to rotate bras is that bras have different pressure and rubbing points, and rotating bras could help reduce discomfort.

The more you know! :)

This coming Saturday marks the 12th annual “Boob Aid”, a 24-hour charity event benefiting the Japan Foundation for AIDS prevention. A group of nine Japanese porn actresses are offering their fans a chance to squeeze their boobs for donations.

The adult film stars told local media on Monday that they could barely contain their excitement for the “Stop! AIDS” campaign event, which will be broadcasted on adult cable television.

“I’m really looking forward to lots of people fondling my boobs,” pornstar Rina Serina told Tokyo Sports.

“But I would be very happy if you would please be delicate.”

This event comes after some recent controversy in the headlines involving sexist heckling of a Tokyo assemblywoman, calling out old-fashioned views toward women that still exist in Japanese society.

Unaware of any contradiction, Serina said: “I never thought my boobs could contribute to society.”

Another porn actress, Iku Sakuragi, also had no qualms about being groped by hundreds of pairs of hands for the event.

“It’s for charity,” she said.

“Squeeze them, donate money — let’s be happy.”

[Well said!]

A public outcry erupted in June when lawmakers from Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s ruling subjected Tokyo assemblywoman Ayaka Shiomura to sexist taunts, including shouting “Why don’t you get married?” at her during a debate on motherhood.

According to news.com.au: “Japan has one of the lowest rates of female workforce participation in the developed world and a lack of childcare facilities, poor career support and deeply entrenched sexism are blamed for keeping women at home.”

The charity “squeeze-a-thon” begins at 7pm (EST) on Saturday, August 30th, and is backed by the Japan Foundation for AIDS Prevention.
