“Cyber Figure ARis Official Guide Book” - Watch the virtual figure ARis showering in her room!
"Cyber Figure ARis" is the world’s first Augmented Reality(AR) consumer product. Using the software, a webcam and a prop called Cyber CUBE(patent pending) you can interact with the digital maid figure ARis(pronounced Alice in Japan) by poking and moving the Cyber CUBE on your desk. ARis will react to your touch on the computer screen, you can undress her, tease her, please her, upset her or shower her with gifts.
"ARis" was released last October in Japan and sold more than 10,000 copies since then. An official guide book is to be published by Kodansha, now available for pre-order. The book comes with special feature "Cyber Props" including "ARis's room" where you can see what she's up to when not serving you.
