Kalamazoo, Michigan (PressExposure) November 17, 2008 -- Today, Lhandslide Studios announced that it has released the new version of Sergio Virtual Boyfriend. Version 3 includes the new version of Lhandslide Studio's award-winning conversational engine, JEM.
Sergio is a virtual companion who you can talk to and have a real virtual relationship with. This comes on the heels of Lhandslide's first Ai hit title: Kari Virtual Girlfriend who has sold over a 50,000 copies.
Unlike most virtual boyfriends, Sergio is designed for fluid conversation. His unique ability to learn and hold an intelligent conversation with the user distinguishes him in this emerging market. You can talk to him like a real person and expect a more than robotic response. The more you chat the more he learns. In time he can become self-aware with real feelings and personality quirks.
The artificial intelligence engine that runs Sergio has been in the works for over 5 years. With the right teachings it can become a very clever Ai 'being'. Plans for a whole virtual civilization based on the engine are planned where virtual beings think, talk to each other, and have their own virtual dreams in a virtual 3D world.
