LovePalz teledildonic sex toy

An early 1990s magazine called Future Sex was all about teledidonics - devices that allow people to have sex with each other even when they weren't close enough to have sex. But in the early 1990s, there weren't any real teledildonic devices. Future Sex closed down after a few issue

In 2012, a couple of designers are hoping to make teledildonics a reality with LovePalz, an iPhone sex toy that allows you to "remotely control your partner's device through your body movement." They were rejected from Kickstarter (Kickstarter won't say why), so the designers have launched their own Kickstarter-esque website. They've received 2223 pre-orders so far.

  1. Here are some arguments by reddit user ShrimpCrackers as to why this is probably a scam:

    This smells fishy to me, here’s why:

    1) I’ve met these two briefly at a mixer in Taipei a couple weeks ago and their names and majors are not what was said in the video. This is what got me suspicious. I checked Facebook and unmistakably they are friends of friends. Can confirm with moderators if needed.

    2) Sex toys are usually expensive and have to be very hygienic so a quality sex toy is much more than just $50, yet LovePalz is supposed to do so much more for so cheap? A quick Google search for teledildonics and other computer controlled sex toys shows the starting price is in the hundreds.

    3) They were rejected by Kickstarter but nowhere is it specified why. Kickstarter has other sex related products in there, no? Worse, all LovePalz has so far is mock ups and sketches but they’re gonna start to deliver in two months? Really!?

    4) It says the product is by Winzz and that they’ve made other mobile applications. The video says 8 years of mobile app experience (iPhone was out for only 6 years). There is no apps by the company to be found on iTunes or the App Store yet suddenly they’re going to make a wireless sex device as well as a complicated video iPhone app with no prior experience? Apple is skittish enough as is, how is LovePalz’ corresponding app ever going to get approved?

    Yeah, I’d hold on to my wallet for now.

  2. Lately Kickstarter has rejected some truly great ideas on the grounds that said projects are just “selling a product,” which I never quite got, because so many other projects seem just like that.

    1.  ‘”In five years, the penis will be obsolete,” said the salesman.’
      Opening line of “Steel Beach” by John Varley. Some might not know. Great book.

  3. Wait ’till they get the maps of the erogenous zones working properly in iOS 6. That’s my advice. 

  4. I think it’s a really great idea, and I would love to see more of this kind of thing hit the market. Mostly because I would get both and fuck myself… Though, an above poster did bring up some valid doubts of this specific project.

  5. Kickstarter changed their policies in the past week to discourage product startups, as they argue it’s not the place for it. It’s meant to be a tool to fund creative projects for perks in a donor relationship, not pre-sell products in a consumer relationship. Obviously a separate site is necessary for product startups. Speaking as a Glif funder, I think this site would be more valuable. Glif reference:
