The VR Dating Show! YES It now exists

The format of dating shows has progressed from game show contestant, matchmaking to modern day VR/reality-style shows where the cast competes to hookup.You remember those gimmick-based dating shows about people going on dates naked, or in the dark, or with some other twist? Some other company is doing this for virtual reality now.But what happens when you take the blind date show format and teleport it into the future? You get a dating show that takes place entirely in a virtual world.
          Virtual reality (VR) is a computer technology that uses Virtual reality                    headsets, sometimes in combination with physical spaces or multi-projected environments, to generate realistic images, sounds and other sensations that simulate a user's physical presence in a virtual or imaginary environment
The first half of Virtual Dating’s couple is Shelby, a hedge fund office administrator and the second is John. The producers scan both of their bodies to create photorealistic 3D avatars, including molded faces plastered with rictus grins. Then they head into a virtual bar and start the date.
So far,Virtually Dating is not bridging a massive geographical gap with VR. But couples are actually in the same location.The ostensible entertainment is watching people flail around with rubbery limbs, joking about how weird they look in VR. Sometimes the avatars turn into dinosaurs or get whisked to a lunar landscape, and you can watch them joke about how weird it feel being in it. 
Condé Nast Entertainment (CNÉ) has premiered the first episode of a new show called “Virtually Dating,” the show was launched on Facebook’s Watch platform yesterday
