Virtual sex, along with flying cars and spandex body suits, are one of the staples of the future oft-predicted by science fiction movies. (Demolition Man, anyone?) And thanks to an enterprising company called Mojowijo that turns Wii remotes into vibrators, we may all be one step closer to having sex without all that fussy touching. From the Mojowijo website:
The device is attached to the accessory port on a Nintendo Wii* remote control. The control is then connected to a bluetooth enabled PC running Mojowijo software. Using Mojowijo's patent pending Motion2Vibration technology, the device is able to transform the varying motions of the control into appropriate vibration signals and send them to another selected device - in the same room or over the internet. (Wii gaming console NOT required). Essentially turning your Wii remotes into shared, remote controlled vibrators (aka wii vibrator or wiibrator!)
In other words, the main appeal of the device isn't the capacity to use a Wii remote as a vibrator, it's being able to control others' remotely. They're on Twitter and Facebook (a mere eight people like the Mojowijo at this time!) where they say the device will also "work interactively over Skype." We assume they are referring to Skype's video chat function, which has been serving as an interactive component to non-contact sex for a while now. The Mojowijo will be available in Fall of this year, but if you just can't stand to wait, you can sign up for a Beta test program. And if you do, let us know how it goes.
