Genius or madness? A new sex toy (which looks like a giant peanut) promises to bring teledildonics to a new level, with sophisticated servos and controls, heating element, and lubrication tank. You hook it up to your computer and then play the on-demand videos which synch up to the device based on pre-programmed kinesthetic scripts.
The madness part is picturing people using the darn thing...to make it work, you've got a tangle of wires and power cords hooked up to your laptop and television. And the blase "How-To" on how to clean the inside workings of the device are pretty scary as well.
But the genius part is this--it allows you to sell sex toys on the razor/blade model. Yes, you can make money off the device itself, but you can really rake it in by selling videos (with synchronized teledildonics scripts) of people's favorite porn stars. I can only imagine the profits of using it in conjunction with live video.
If people are willing to pay hefty subscription fees to interact with porn stars over their laptop now, just imagine the possibilities when that "interaction" takes place via sophisticated teledildonics.
I can also imagine a hefty homebrew and amateur market. Maybe instead of the standard sex tape, Real Touch sessions would become the latest craze, or simply a way for folks to relive past encounters.
Pair it up with a virtual reality helmet, and I'm pretty sure the end of the human race is nigh...at least the male half of it.
