LovePalz: Long Distance Couples, Your Wait Is Over!
Gypsy_Soul: Quoted from a story on Huffington Post:
"LovePalz is a two-way, Internet-connected pleasure machine that allows couples in different bedrooms, from anywhere in the world that has Wi-Fi, to simulate coitus. Each partner positions one device -- a "Hera" for the ladies, a "Zeus" for the men -- on his or her erogenous zone and then opens up the LovePalz iPhone app (not yet submitted to or approved by Apple) to connect the device with his or her partner's. (Interestingly, there's a social network aspect to the app: You can add other users and then choose which one you want to connect with; in this case, a higher friend count might not be something you wish to advertise.) Once you've paired with a fellow LovePalz owner, the process begins, and whatever movement one partner makes with his or her hips, that movement is received and recreated on the partner's device, in real-time, accounting for both speed and pressure."
Enjoy the giggles, people! We've all got Wire friends in long-distance relationships and now we know what to get them for Christmas. Now, stop picturing them bumping and grinding alone in their beds and get to shopping!
Aura_: I first heard about these gadgets in the nineties (but they weren't force feedback back then). So they finally made an social network app for this? About time I guess.
Sarcastic Dots: I guess you guys have never heard of the Japanese MMO that comes with a vibrator and fleshlight.
Whimsical Fairy: I've heard of those. I think...isn't that what all the kids play nowadays with their X-Box (via internet) and stuff?
Aura_: Actually, the average age of a gamer is over 30 years. The 'kids' are playing it, so are the 'dads and moms' well maybe not the parents of the kids who are currently playing, but you get what I'm trying to say lol. And yes, the X-box is a large part of it. But most of the games can be played on a pc, if you have a good video card. I'm not completely sure on the ranking, but I think World of Warcraft is still one of the biggest.
Things like Call of duty is not a MMO, since a game can be played in about 30 minutes. Hardly something you would call 'massive'.
Whimsical Fairy: I couldn't even play Farmville on my PC
Interesting that the average gamer is over 30 though.
Aura_: Part of that is economics. A good game for $40 will keep you busy for months. A good movie for $15 (more or less) is still about two hours.
Whimsical Fairy: All this gaming stuff, social networks, facebook..the whole kit and kaboodle was just coming out when my son graduated. Honestly, you have no idea how thankful I am for that.
ohnonotthatguy: Correct Coffee.$40 bucks for a game and sit on the couch for a month.
I gained 879 LBS in less than a week just trying to get out of some freaking game 1st level
