Robotics-Assisted Teledildonics: Sex Over the Internet Using Robots

Vice magazine brings to attention the FriXion Revolution, calling itself a "new kind of social network platform" providing "innovative and affordable haptic peripherals" that allow users to hold hands or kiss, all the way to "full penetrative sex whether your partner is across the room or across an ocean." You knew this was coming.

The "real-time bidirectional force feedback telemetry" you see in the video "can be configured for any gender or orientation," and it does exactly what you'd think it does—it translates the sexual activity from one wired sex toy across the digital sea to another, emulating the movements and reactions of each. Combined with Skype and a webcam, it's inching us towards fully experiential, yet completely disembodied sex.

The tech looks poised to go beyond transmitting traditional sex, too: you can apparently use a mouse or a smartphone to manipulate pleasure centers in ways that simply weren't previously available to the old-fashioned human. Furthermore, the video notes that it's an open platform API, so developers can design their own apps and plug-ins to further expand and enweirden the horizons of netsex. We're right on the cusp, maybe, of mainstreamed sex-hacking.
