Washington: Forget eyewear or wristband, wearable technology can not get closer than this!
Welcome to the first ever electrically-engineered underwear with tiny electromagnetic vibrators which produce a momentary sensation when a smartphone key is touched.
So when the wearer's partner touches his or her smart phone, the sensitive regions are indicated on a template on the phone's screen.
The wearer feels a gentle frisson - or even a light vibration - depending on whether the partner has touched or swiped the screen.
It is a very light vibration, like a touch. It depends on how you touch your smart phone.
If you slide hard, it is like a stroke!
The vibrator units are strategically installed.
In the female version, the tiny vibrators are placed in both brassiere and panties to make contact with sensitive regions of the body.
The prototypes of this underwear, called 'Fundawear', were demonstrated during a session titled 'Tech Off Your Clothes: Naked Truths Of Wearables', at South by Southwest (SXSW) conference in Austin, Texas, recently.
International condom manufacturer Durex is looking into the feasibility to put these wearables into production, said media reports.
