“Hands On” With An iPad-Controlled Sex Toy [CES 2012]



LAS VEGAS, CES 2012 — There are a lot of iPad- and iPhone-connected devices at CES, but OhMiBod’s line of iPad-powered personal massagers are some of the most unusual.

No one was actually trying these out on the CES show floor, but we got some first impressions:

How do OhMiBod‘s personal massagers work? Just connect a small wireless transmitter to an iPod, iPad or iPhone and the massager will pulsate to the music. Plug and play, you might say.

I picked one up at the booth. It was velvety soft. It has a nice chrome finish. It has a powerful motor but it’s very quiet.

They can also be controlled by iPad or iPhone app.

OhMiBod’s $0.99 Remote app comes with a set of preset vibrations, including Cresting Waves and Fire Alarm!

You can call up favorite vibrations, create custom vibrations on the fly, and make lists of favorites.

Move your finger up and down the iPad’s screen to change the speed, and left or right to change the strength of vibration. Swiping two fingers creates complex patterns.

These can be saved and added to a list of speed-dial favorites. Shaking your iPhone or iPad stops the device.

OhMiBod has three different styles of massager; the standard Freestyle, the Freestyle G (curved tip to hit the G-spot) and the Freestyle W (a rabbit-style vibe) The $120.00 Freestyle comes with its own custom travel case and universal chargers.

The massagers look like a lot of fun, but I’m skeptical the iPad control is practical. Users are likely to be too busy to fiddle with their iPad.

      Certainly gives new meaning to the phrase, “You’ll change your tune.”

    I want to comment on this but I just can’t come up with what to say….

  • James Padilla

    Or “can you feel the music?” 

  • joewaylo

    How in God’s name would they be “trying these out on the CES show floor”? It’s a sex toy. You’d have to try this in a more private location. Unless you would like to show the folks in public what a sex toy is for.

    More like butt plug & play.

    i don’t think the control are for the one actually using it, but more for the other person to control the experience
    Sounds like fun to me!

    I’m guessing the iPad feature would be for your partner to control.

  • Bill Wimsatt

    Uh, there is another adult conference held in LV at the same time as CES. Perhaps there are demos going on there?

  • Mitch McKee

    This has actually been around since (I believe) before the iPhone. OhMiBod originally created them to plug into your iPod and the vibrations were matched to the music playing. Hence the “Feel the Music” tagline.

    From the article: “No one was actually trying these out on the CES show floor, but we got some first impressions:”

    Furthermore, I can promise you, if you hold one in your hand to feel the vibration, you’re going to have a pretty damned good idea of how it’s going to work for you.

  • Cowboy Ron

    With Siri, perhaps it could talk dirty too.

  • joewaylo

    No thank you. Holding a vibrating dildo. Eeks.

  • Sean Empen

    Now if only there were a version that triggered the vibes whenever a text or call came in…

  • Martin Meredith

    Finaally… a use for dubstep
