Durex Australia recently launched a new line of undies for both men and women with the released of "Fundawear", which stands for what else, "fun underwear".
It is a unique concept that takes the idea of long distance love to the next level. To stay connected when they are apart all a couple needs to do is kit themselves out in Fundawear, download the special app and then connect digitally with their partner.
The app takes touch input from one person’s screen and sends these signals via the internet and a real-time server to the other person’s touch screen device. In just a split second the signal is sent to the Fundawear garment where the touch sensation is recreated on the skin using touch actuators.
Sydney-based tech firm Snepo have built the Fundawear garments, which contain small vibrating and pulsating actuators that can be remotely controlled via a mobile phone app. The idea is to allow couples separated by distance to remotely stimulate each other - and the garments have quickly gained worldwide attention.
