Durex says they have invented the “future of foreplay.” “Fundawear” is underwear that allows “touch to be transferred over the Internet.”
It is ostensibly aimed at couples in a long-distance relationship — allowing them to “tease, tickle and tantalize even when apart” — but it could also be for technology buffs who really despise physical contact.
Fundawear works by using the same technology used to make your phone vibrate. Actuators wired into the garments are remotely stimulated by an app. Ben Moir, technical director of the project, said, “After the laughter had stopped, we knew it was going to be an awesome project. People will want this.”
