Just for those of you who want to be on the bleeding edge, tech-wise: The Toy
The Toy is a Bluetooth vibrator which is worn internally and … ahem …activated … by SMS messaging via Bluetooth. Yes, really. The Toy is the invention of British company Cool & Groovy Toy Co., who refer to “The Toy” Bluetooth vibrator as a “a hi-tech vibrating bullet". Or maybe an SMS Ben Wa Ball.Just the thing to liven up a dull day at the orifice....
Explains Cool & Groovy, “The Toy is worn internally, linked to a mobile phone and controlled by sms text messages sent to the phone. Once read, the message is transported automatically to The Toy, which turns it into vibrations - with a huge range of movements, depending on what you have written. Just say what you feel, The Toy will do the rest.”
Ok, we’re all geeks here, so I know that what you really want is the specs. So here they are:
The Toy has onboard undiscoverable Bluetooth, turbo-boost circuitry “for more motor power", a power status and charge indicator (The Toy’s charge, not hers), will run all day on a 4-hour charge and has an “intelligent CPU” (you know, I’m not sure that I’d want to shove something with a CPU in my..well, anywhere.)
As for the SMS aspect, The Toy responds only to messages which come from the paired phone, and which are specially tagged. Each letter of the alphabet has three different movement profiles, each of which have five associated speeds and time settings. That means that there are dozens of possible movement-speed-time combinations for each letter. Which means that every word you send via SMS to The Toy will trigger several different vibrations.
Cool & Groovy claims that The Toy has a “worldwide range, the only limit is network coverage.”
