Here is some great news for all those who have been missing some ‘action’ — now, you can amp up your sex life by accessing The Kama Sutra on your smartphone or tablet in 3D.
The 2000-year-old sex manual has been sexed up for the 21st century with a new app, Kama Xcitra, that enables couples to study its instructions in 3D.
State-of-the art-technology transforms the illustrations into holograms that pop up on the screen of a smartphone or tablet.
The free app not only promises to help couples master positions from the book, but also allows its users to customise the appearance of models by changing skin or hair colour, besides adding a soundtrack.
The Guardian quoted Hazel Cushion, managing director of publisher Xcite Books as saying, “The Kama Xcitra uses state-of-the-art technology… Each image appears to pop out of the page as a 3D hologram right in front of the reader’s phone.”
The Kama Sutra is said to be the oldest and most notable of a group of texts based on ancient Hindu philosophies.
Originally written in Sanskrit, it was first translated into English by Richard Burton in 1883.
The ancient scripture has even tickled the fancy of filmmakers both in Bollywood and Hollywood. A film, titled Kamasutra, by Mira Nair, which was replete with soft-core sex and exotic sets, was banned in India for its sexually explicit scenes.
The latest attempt is Kamasutra 3D, which is also the debut movie of controversial model Sherlyn Chopra.
