NYU Virtual Girlfriend

28 year old NYU student, Drew Burrows, has created an interesting piece of art which can be seen as "creepy" or perhaps "sad" by most. He has created a "virtual girlfriend" that is projected onto the bed next to him. The program that runs the projection responds to various movements that it picks up from infrared sensors in order to allow the projected "girlfriend" to respond accordingly. While the item is mainly a piece of art meant to showcase his technical abilities, Burrows admits that it is "So nice if you're tired and worn out to have someone to curl up with."
