LovePalz: Bluetooth-Enabled, Teledildonic Sex Toys
LovePalz WiFi Sex Toys Let You Get Nasty In Real-Time, LovePalz teledildonic sex toy - Boing Boing ! An early 1990s magazine called Future Sex was all about teledidonics - devices that allow people to have sex with each other even when they weren't close enough to have sex. But in the early 1990s, there weren't any real teledildonic devices. Future Sex closed down after a few issues.
In 2012, a couple of designers are hoping to make teledildonics a reality with LovePalz, an iPhone sex toy that allows you to "remotely control your partner's device through your body movement." They were rejected from Kickstarter (Kickstarter won't say why), so the designers have launched their own Kickstarter-esque website. They've received 2223 pre-orders so far. It's all pretty straightforward: Thrusts and gyrations on one side are carried via Bluetooth over the air through an iPhone app to the device on the other end, mimicking the speed and pressure of each movement. Pre-orders are available now — a his and hers "Zeus" and "Hera" set costs just $94.95 — and shipping is expected in November.
