Mojowijo Lets Users Turn Their Wii Remotes Into Vibrators for Virtual Sex

Posted By on Mon, Aug 30, 2010 at 4:43 PM

Virtual sex, along with flying cars and spandex body suits, are one of the staples of the future oft-predicted by science fiction movies. (Demolition Man, anyone?) And thanks to an enterprising company called Mojowijo that turns Wii remotes into vibrators, we may all be one step closer to having sex without all that fussy touching.

From the Mojowijo website:

The device is attached to the accessory port on a Nintendo Wii*

remote control. The control is then connected to a bluetooth enabled PC

running Mojowijo software. Using Mojowijo's patent pending Motion2Vibration

technology, the device is able to transform the varying motions of the

control into appropriate vibration signals and send them to another

selected device - in the same room or over the internet. (Wii gaming

console NOT required). Essentially turning your Wii remotes into

shared, remote controlled vibrators (aka wii vibrator or wiibrator!)

In other words, the main appeal of the device isn't the capacity to use a Wii remote as a vibrator, it's being able to control others' remotely. They're on Twitter and  Facebook (a mere eight people like the Mojowijo at this time!) where they say the device will also "work interactively over Skype." We assume they are referring to Skype's video chat function, which has been serving as an interactive component to non-contact sex for a while now.

The Mojowijo will be available in Fall of this year, but if you just can't stand to wait, you can sign up for a Beta test program. And if you do, let us know how it goes.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
