Oh - that's somewhat primitive compared to real teledildonics:

Welcome to the future. ;-)

(Now if I can convince someone to try this stuff out...)

Hey, you're insulting my project by calling it primitive next to a vacuum pump on a potentiometer, and a current regulator on an RF circuit! :)

Really, there's really very little interesting engineering wise about teledildonics at the moment. Right now it's more just the fact that people are realizing that we've got processing in small enough packages that we can now put it near our no-no zones easily. I don't see anything really cool happening with it for a while.

I think your project is cool - I did add the syndicated feed. ;-)

I mean it is 'local' - control to toy. What is more exciting to me is the 'tele' in teledildonics - being able to control sex toys over the net.

Actually, what would be the dream is a simulation suit and VR, so you touch your virtual lover and they feel it, and vice versa. I think the closest thing now is the very primitive connection of Fleshlight with a toy on the other end, where the man's thrusts will vary the speed and vibrations on the other end, but it isn't really conveying the actions.

Heheh, yeah, I was just being silly. ;)

Technically, when XBox live is taken into account, this *is* teledildonics. One of the videos I plan on making is showing someone getting shot on Halo2 over XBL, and having the toy trigger off of that.

The suit thing would be really cool, but it's way, way off. Right now we're stuck with air pressure sensors on the Fleshlight and vibration caused by video games. :)
