If you’re fan of Big Bang Theory you must remember the episode in which Raj and Howard created the “Internet Kissing” prototype. For those that aren’t familiar, this “device” sensed where you placed your lips, and a secondary “robot” in another location would simulate the actions to allow two people in a far distance to “connect” physically. Watch the video below to see it in action because words can never give the scene the justice it deserves.
When this episode aired the idea seemed comical in its context yet encompassed some genius to it. How can two people entertained in a long distance relationship provide the comfort of physical intimacy? Skype took conversations to one level, Snapchat’s pushed it to another point, but the latest Durex experiment takes the “Howard and Raj Internet Kissing” idea and makes “touch over the internet” possible.
Announced as Fundawear, a smartphone app transfers “ones’ touch to a piece of underwear”. The vibrating sensation encourages couples to play with this wearable tech in a way never before seen. Ladies are given bra and panties, while males are offered boxer briefs and a smartphone app lets users remotely control how, where and when vibrations occur on their companion.
