VibraFun Products has unveiled new technology – called SAC FX – which allows sex toys to be controlled by a wide variety of media, including DVD players, PCs, iPods, mobile phones, broadcast television, Sony’s PSP and even devices without visual displays such as music CDs and chat lines. ETO has been given a world exclusive first look at the technology which is a development of that used in VibraFun’s VibraExciter.
VibraFun’s Jason Regler told ETO: “We have always believed that sexual fun and intimacy between people should not be limited to them being in the same room. Technology now makes it possible to have different types of sex with anyone around the world in a safe way – the VibraExciter was proof of that. Now, with this concept, you can have a lot of fun in a lot of different ways with anyone else who provides services to it, or has bought the tools needed to use it with other people, anywhere in the world, at any time.”
The technology is claimed to be both easy to integrate into existing systems and low cost.
Regler added: “Whether it be swinging with people via chat on a swingers site, watching porn on DVD or watching live streamed TV you can have five, ten or more people in a ring all watching the content with their own devices. It’s a new way of interacting with what you’re seeing or hearing. Users of MSN etc will also be able to download the application and that will open up a whole new world of possibilities for messaging and chat. You will be able to chat and control each other’s toys with words, emoticons and smileys.
“We also feel there is huge potential for many adult services providers to increase their revenue streams. There is a lot of money currently spent across the globe on adult services that give nothing physical to the user or subscriber. You get visual or verbal stimulation but no physical stimulation or feeling. The price point it will come at will make it possible, we believe, to provide users with the same services but with the added benefit of physical sensations.”
An in-depth feature on the technology can be found in the April issue of ETO.
