Cyberspace — LewdTube.com, originally created as a comprehensive directory of virtual webcam models, recently announced that it “aims to offer virtual performers access to both hardware and software designed in-house for the specific purpose of enhancing and simplifying the virtual broadcasting process for adult creators.”
After observing a trend in emerging virtual webcam models, LewdTube.com has enlisted the developers behind Vex Ruby and CGI adult production company ViRo Playspace to create avatar performance software made specifically for adult v-tubers and avatar-based webcam models.
Virtual webcam models, often referred to as v-tubers, are performers who broadcast as virtual avatars in live, motion-tracked performances. The viewing experience is similar to watching an interactive video game character in real time, as the broadcaster’s movement and facial expressions are mapped to the 3D avatar on screen.
“We’ve created the fastest and easiest way to find new avatar-based adult cam models and see who is online right now. Our directory is community-driven and we allow fans and models to add new performers. We support models from Chaturbate and most other adult cam model sites,” said a representative from LewdTube.com. “Our next step will be to offer all virtual broadcasters access to LewdTube Studio, an app that makes it easier to livestream and allows performers to interact haptically with their fans.”
In addition to the LewdTube Studio software, the team is also selling the VEx Helmet, a helmet with a phone mount that was designed to assist the face capture process to track the performer’s facial expressions. The helmet is designed to be easier to use and more comfortable to wear for long periods of time compared to other similar options on the market.
“Until now, performers and models had to either build expensive applications from scratch, or rely on 3rd party software for v-tubers or avatar-based social platforms,” said Ela Darling, Marketing Director of ViRo Playspace. “These solutions lack the features and anatomy necessary for adult performances, lack reliable full-body motion capture solutions, and are often in violation of the applications Terms of Service”
LewdTube is now taking applications for their first round of private beta testers for their upcoming LewdTube Studio software solution for virtual cam performers. Performers who are interested in applying can do so on the company’s website.
