A Vibrator Called Limon

20130501155409-L2_with_lemons_pink

No longer just an oddly flavored potato chip, the Limon is also a new sexy-time vibrator from a startup called Minna. The company is looking for backers for its “couples’ vibrator”, which just so happens to look like a pink lime-lemon hybrid.

However, the Limon is no lemon or lime. It’s an ultra-powerful bullet vibrator that is controlled by how hard you squeeze it. That is, the harder you squeeze the lime part of the Limon, the harder the lemon-style tip will vibrate.

Minna claims that it’s the strongest vibrator of its type in the world, thanks to the fact that they squeezed a motor made for larger toys into a lime-sized bullet vibrator. Of course, I’m sure the Jimmyjane Form 6 or the Hitachi Magic Wand beg to differ.

The Limon also has a customizable memory, meaning that you can record and playback the vibration levels exactly how you did before.

Interesting, right?

Consider the scenario: Two lovers are chilling with their Limon and one has to go away for a week on some business trip. They can use the Limon the night before, and the lonesome lady will then have a recording of her partner giving her the good stuff. Sexy.

The Limon battery will last anywhere between 90 minutes and three hours, depending on how aggressive you are. It’s waterproof, charges by USB cable and comes in both teal and pink.

Of course, we’ll have to conduct a complete review, lest we shamefully leave these claims unverified. But for now, the Limon is looking for backers so that it can be made into a reality. It’s expected to go for $ 120, but donations start at $ 25.

Body Hacks: Building An Open-Source, Theremin-Like Vibrator

vibe54-640x480

For your postprandial pleasure I present the an open-source vibrator that you (or your partner) can play like a theremin. The story of how it came to be is pretty amazing and involves FCC chip lookups, bit-tracing, and lots of assembly code. In short, it’s an amazing effort in DIY hardware hacking that serves the dual purpose of education and giving pleasure.

Built by Beth Scott and based on an off-the-shelf vibrator model called the Lyla, the device uses an Arduino board and sonic transducers to create an interactive, invisible cone of sound that you can move your hand through in order to control the vibrator. Writes Scott:

In fact, it does start to feel like there’s a palpable object in space above the remote’s sensors. Move your body close to it, and it reacts. Press into it lightly, or tease the edges. Flick your hand through it, or make graceful waves back and forth. You can use your whole body to touch it, almost like a big fuzzy vibrating cone floating in air.

Scott has included the plans she used to build the device as well as the 3D models for the case and battery holder. She used the aptly-named Anker battery case and programmed the firmware to interact with various body parts.

“There could be a lot more to electronic sex toys than just a battery and a motor. I want the future to be full of toys that know how to play,” wrote Scott. Amen.
