Two Vibrator Things for You Today

1. There’s a movie about the historical invention of the vibrator staring Maggie Gyllenhaal, Hugh Dancy and Jonathan Price? Interesting. [via marysue]

2. How much would you pay for a vibrator that also doubles as a USB device? Wired offers this description:

The toy plugs into any free USB port to charge, and when full can give a terrifying four hours of pleasure. It has four different patterns of vibration, five power levels, and runs almost silently. This discretion extends to the design, which doesn’t really look like a sex toy at all.

In fact, the feature list is pretty good even before we get to the vibrating part. The silicone and metal body is completely waterproof. You can drop it into water up to three meters (10 feet) deep, and of course you can use the thing in the bath.

But the oddest part is the flash memory option. I can see the sense of putting a few gigs of storage into something that will be plugged into a USB port anyway, but what on earth would you keep on there? Porn is the obvious answer, but what’s the point if you can’t look at it and use the vibrator at the same time?

The Duet is currently seeking funding in CKIE, a Kickstarter-like site. You’ll need to pitch $75 to get the base model (it’ll be $140 when it goes on sale), $125 for the 8GB stick ($190 retail) and $250 ($350 retail) for the 16GB “Luxe” model which comes with a shiny gold-plated coat.

It makes no sense though. You can watch porn on the USB drive but you can’t pleasure yourself. You can pleasure yourself but can’t really use the USB drive. Sounds like someone didn’t think this one through.
