You might have heard of the Project LovePlus game before, a dating simulator that is quite popular over in Japan. We also know that the upcoming Nintendo 3DS features front- and rear-facing cameras.

It’s a rather strange and slightly disturbing scenario, but then again, technology does strange things to people.
