“The basic idea is to allow the brain to be tricked into thinking the experience is real,” says Eddy Olivares, marketing manager of Lovense, a company founded to allow two-way interactive synchronized sex toy pairing across continents.
The key to tricking the brain will be the use of “haptics,” or touch feedback integrated into the VR videos. Lovense has two models: a male toy (called “Max”) and the female toy (called “Nora”), which retail for about $199 and come with a Bluetooth wireless dongle to pair with a computer or smartphone. [...]
[...T]he user positions the Lovense device in their genital area and enables the Bluetooth wireless dongle. Second, he or she puts on the VR goggles. Third, he or she begins the VirtualRealPlayer [...] to enable the POV porno in 180-degree stereoscopic viewing. Finally, as the movie is playing, the Lovense sex toy synchronizes automatically with the video being watched.
