Smartphone-obsessed couples, rejoice: a sex toy has been created just for you. Sex Toy Company OhMiBod announced at the 2014 International Consumer Electronics Show in Last Vegas panties that can be controlled by a partner.
Husband-and-wife team Brian and Suki Dunham, founders of OhMiBod, came up with the concept when he noticed that he and his wife were spending too much time on their smartphones, and less time being intimate.
Prior iterations of the product required bulky, indiscreet remote controls. The blueMotion massager, which retails for $129 CAD, aims to given women pleasure with the help of the accompanying Android or iOS app—thanks to the briefs Bluetooth chip.
The Bluetooth chip in the massager takes advantage of many smartphone features, including accelerometer, touch screen, and volume controls. One feature allows you to record up to sixty seconds of sound. This can allow for the vibrator to buzz to the beat and rhythm of your partner’s voice, or a song of your choosing.
“It’s a really fun way to control vibrations without anyone knowing what you’re doing, because the remote is on your phone,” Dunham said. “Technology can drive couples apart, but this is using technology and gadgets to bring them closer together.”
Currently, the app has to be within Bluetooth range for it to sync with the panties in real time. According to Dunham, OhMiBod is working to bring long distance to the app, and should have it running by summer 2014.
OhMiBod has an extensive line of high-tech personal pleasure products. Their first product, also called the OhMiBod, is a music-driven sex toy that allows you to plug in your iPod. The product then vibrates to the beat and rhythm of your favorite music. The volume control is also an asset, as it controls the intensity of the vibrations—the higher the volume, the more intense they are.
The product will not be hitting the sex shop shelves until March. The product released will be one size fits all.
