Interpersonal Shifts 

Per Jason Gibert at the Huffington Post;

“Now, however, there is a new gadget called LovePalz, marketed specifically to couples doing the long-distance thing, that is aiming to make the waiting a little less hard.

LovePalz is a two-way, Internet-connected pleasure machine that allows couples in different bedrooms, from anywhere in the world that has Wi-Fi, to simulate coitus. Each partner positions one device — a “Hera” for the ladies, a “Zeus” for the men — on his or her erogenous zone and then opens up the LovePalz iPhone app (not yet submitted to or approved by Apple) to connect the device with his or her partner’s. (Interestingly, there’s a social network aspect to the app: You can add other users and then choose which one you want to connect with; in this case, a higher friend count might not be something you wish to advertise.) Once you’ve paired with a fellow LovePalz owner, the process begins, and whatever movement one partner makes with his or her hips, that movement is received and recreated on the partner’s device, in real-time, accounting for both speed and pressure. With LovePalz, at least, it really is all about the motion in the ocean, not the size of the ship.”
