Everyone knows the famous Star Trek line, “to boldly go where no one has gone before.” Now the Internet is penetrating the final frontier of privacy – your underpants – literally. Fundawear is technology that “beams” your touch to someone’s private places using a Smartphone App and Internet connection. Oh yeah, you also need specially made female lingerie and/or male underwear with tiny vibrating motors.
Durex in Sydney, Australia invented Fundawear—underwear allowing your partner (or yourself, we don’t judge) to remotely operate sensors sewn into undergarments to simulate touch over the Internet. It seems fitting that Fundawear comes from “the land down under.” (Sorry, it has to be said.) But they are serious and marketing this as the next big thing for relationships. Here’s a promotional video that tries to make this seem legitimate:
Fundawear claims that it allows you to transfer touch over vast distances. But let’s get real – this is high tech foreplay. And it can take masturbation to a whole new level. Not to mention the practical joke potential. Simply replace your friend’s underwear with Fundawear. Later in the day when they are at a business meeting you can provide them with some surprising stimulation!
There is also the potential to make otherwise mundane tasks A LOT more exciting. Imagine how Fundawear could spice up a day at the DMV waiting to get your license renewed. Your partner (or yourself) brings up the Fundaware app and the next thing you know you are smiling at the DMV, something you hardly ever see.
Will Fundaware bring a whole new universe of exotic fun? Or will it fall in the black hole of creepiness such as products like the Stadium Pal.
FYI – The Stadium Pal is an apparatus that attaches a tube to your “manhood” that connects to a bag attached to your leg. So you can drink all the beer you want and pee without having to actually go to a toilet. You don’t miss a single second of the game because of pesky bodily functions. And your legs stay warm to boot. Weird, right!
Not sure if this tingly tech for underwear is cool or creepy? But it is, as Spock would say with a raised eyebrow, “Fascinating.”
