HoloKit X Provides A Cheap Entry For AR Porn

Virtual reality porn only started taking off with the popularity of the cheap and affordable mobile headsets such as Google Cardboard, and the Samsung Gear VR. At that point, back in around 2016, VR headsets were still very expensive, and required an equally expensive PC to be plugged into. These cheap mobile ‘headsets’ simply required you to insert your smartphone, which would do all the work – including providing the screen. We appear to be at a similar moment in the evolution of AR porn, with the recent launch of the HoloKit X mobile AR headset.

AR headsets such as the HoloLens and Magic Leap cost several thousand dollars. Last month the Meta Quest Pro launched, which is a ‘mixed reality’ headset capable of both VR and AR. Although cheaper than the HoloLens and Magic Leap, it is still priced at $1,500. It is unlikely to sell more than 1 or 2 million units, as compared to the 21 million that the Oculus Quest 2 has apparently sold in the last 2 years. The HoloKit costs just $149.

Whilst you can of course view the limited number of AR porn apps and content directly through your smartphone, it gets tedious after a few minutes, having to hold your phone up all the time, not to mention impractical for masturbating . It’s a different story when wearing a headset. You can sit back and relax, or move around if you want to view a 3D ‘hologram’ AR girl such as those of RealGirlsNow.

At the present time, the HoloKit appears to be only available for iPhone users. One difference between the HoloKit and the mobile VR headsets is that the phone is positioned quite a bit further away from your face. For that reason, I assume that ‘passthrough VR porn’ videos will not be playable through it. So you are left with the very limited choice of AR phone porn apps, chiefly RealGirlsNow and Discplay.me.
