Twitterdildonic Stimulation

Posted in GETV Episode by ekai on the March 24th, 2007

While at SXSW Interactive in Austin, Texas, Roving RoboReporter Violet Blue caught up with a unique hacker by the name of Kyle Machulis. Kyle isn’t your ordinary teledildonic hardware hacker. No, Kyle created the ultimate real-time sex device mashup by linking public Twitter updates to a Rez Trance Vibrator allowing users to FEEL Twitter messages. Kyle demonstrates and explains how it all works. You will never regard Twitter the same way again. (This video is safe for work, no matter what your industry).

    I freakin LOVE it! Finally a way to love Twitter to “completion.”

    I used to have people vibe me via the web in 97 and later experimented a ton with dildonics. ( Fun interview!

    […] Das Web hat die Eigenschaft, dass es nicht alle Sinne berührt. Abhilfe, zumindest was das Fühlen betrifft, schafft Twitterdildonic, das Twittermessages mit Hilfe des Rez Transvibrators , einem USB Wackeldevice in, äh…Bewegung übersetzt. Violet Blue (tinynibbles, Wikipedia) hat hat den Schöpfer Kyle Machulis für Geek Entertainment TV auf der SXSW interviewt, erklärt die Anwendung und auch den Nutzen in Second Life. […]

    […] "Is this a real life, is this just fantasy?" | Home 2007.03.26 @ 7:41 PM PDT I’m surprised I’m posting on Twitter After seeing this fun video with Kyle Machulis|qDot Bunnyhug, it reminded me that I wanted tosign up for Twitter awhile ago — not that I’m facing any great shortage of social networking, but out of curioisity and because the company behind it is called Obvious. (Yes, again consider how my motivations are half-generic, and the other 50% is so far out in space.) […]

    […] Outside of these? I’ve got my doubts. However, with the amount of attention it’s currently receiving in the blogosphere (and the search marketing blogosphere in particular,) it seems likely that we’ll see it applied in numerous creative manners in the near future. It’s worth watching, at any rate. There’s no question that there will be plenty of very unique applications coming from Twitter. […]

    At first I thought it was a joke then when Kyle pulled out the device…then I thought to myself this could take off in a strange way.  Thanks Violet for daring to bring us the most cutting news from SXSW.  Your rock!  Q. Where can i buy one of those… oh.. not for me of course.. a friend:)
