Have you ever wondered how many calories you're burning during intercourse? How many thrusts? Speed of your thrusts?
The duration of your sessions? Frequency? How many different positions you use in the period of a week, month or year? Ever wondered how you stack up to other people from around the world?
Welcome to the future of wearable technology in the bedroom. Welcome to i.Con.
i.Con is the worlds first smart condom ring and will be available in 2017 from British Condoms exclusively.
Utilizing a Nano-chip and sensors, i.Con will measure and remember a number of different variables during your sessions. Once your session is completed, you will then be able to use the i.Con app to download your recent data which is paired to the
device using Bluetooth technology. Once you have downloaded your data, the i.Con will automatically clear its memory making way for your next session. It's extremely simple to use.
All data will be kept anonymous but users will have the option to share their recent data with friends, or, indeed the world. You will be able to anonymously access stats that you can compare with i.Con users worldwide.
The iCon will retail at £59.99 and will be available in stores worldwide.
i.Con will record:
- Calories burnt during sexual intercourse
- Speed of thrusts
- Total number of thrusts
- Frequency of sessions
- Total duration of sessions
- Average velocity of thrusts
- Girth measurement
- Different positions used (currently BETA testing -- will have more info in a release coming soon)
A study by Princeton researchers came to light earlier this month, revealing that over 400 of the world's most popular websites
use the equivalent of hacking tools to spy on you without your knowledge or consent.
Using session replay scripts from third-party companies, websites are recording your every act, from mouse moves to clicks, to keylogging what you type, and extracting your personal info off the page. If you accidentally paste something into a
text field from your clipboard, like an address or password you didn't want to type out, the scripts can record, transmit, and store that, too.
What these sites are doing with this information, and how much they anonymize or secure it, is a crapshoot.
Among top retail offenders recording your every move and mistake are Costco, Gap.com, Crate and Barrel, Old Navy, Toys R Us, Fandango, Adidas, Boots, Neiman Marcus, Nintendo, Nest, the Disney Store, and Petco.
Tech and security websites spying on users include HP.com, Norton, Lenovo, Intel Autodesk, Windows, Kaspersky, Redhat.com, ESET.com, WP Engine, Logitech, Crunchbase, HPE.com (Hewlett Packard Enterprise), Akamai, Symantec, Comodo.com, and MongoDB.
Other sites you might recognize that are also using active session recording are RT.com, Xfinity, T-Mobile, Comcast, Sputnik News, iStockphoto, IHG (InterContinental Hotels), British Airways, NatWest, Western Union, FlyFrontier.com, Spreadshirt,
Deseret News, Bose, and Chevrolet.com
This summer, the Egyptian government started to block access to news websites. At last count, it had blocked more than 400 websites.
Realising that citizens are using Virtual Private Network (VPN) services to bypass such censorship, the government also started to block access to VPN websites.
In addition to this, ISPs have started using deep packet inspection (DPI) techniques in order to identify and block VPN traffic. Egypt blocked the Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) and Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) VPN protocols in
August. However, until now OpenVPN, worked fine. This allowed ordinary Egyptians to access the uncensored internet.
On 3 October, however, the situation changed. It was reported on reddit that Egypt has now blocked OpenVPN as well. It seems that ISPs are using DPI techniques to detect OpenVPN packets.
This hyper-realistic sex robot filmed having an orgasm in a jaw-dropping video can now be bought for the
The human-like erotic cyborg, named Samantha, has been programmed with eight different modes: family, entertainment, analysis, sleep and three sexy settings -- romantic, calm and nasty.
For around £2,500 customers can buy their very own sex robot.
Its creator, Dr Sergi Santos, from Barcelona, told Daily Star Online the experience of seeing Samantha climax will be surreal and comparable, if not better, than human sex. After months of fine tuning, Dr Santos, a scientist and academic, has
finally started selling his talking female androids through his robotics company, Synthea Amatus.
Her brain memory is stored on an SD card in a computer inside her head, which is attached to the voluptuous silicone body. Her body has pressure points, which are responsive to physical interaction and feedback to the brain. This means Samantha
can tell when you're getting excited because of penetration, speed and the way she got aroused
Samantha can be seen at Liberation sex shop in Covent Garden.
Virtual reality headset manufacturer Oculus have announced that all games made available on its Oculus Store must have an age
classification determined using tools from the International Age Rating Coalition (IARC). The company writes in a blog post:
We're committed to helping everyone on the Oculus platform make well-informed purchasing decisions. That's why we are now utilizing the International Age Rating Coalition (IARC) to give people trusted and familiar ratings for all Oculus experiences.
Moving forward, all titles in the Oculus Store will need to show age and content ratings assigned through the IARC rating process. This change will make it easier for developers to get age and content ratings for your app from multiple territories
simultaneously. It also provides consumers a consistent set of familiar and trusted ratings that reflect their own cultural norms regarding content and age-appropriateness.
In order to give people consistent ratings no matter where they live, all titles in the Oculus Store must have IARC assigned ratings. New titles submitted to the store will receive an automatic prompt to obtain their rating through IARC by answering a
simple set of questions. IARC will provide a rating for each applicable region and rating authority at the conclusion of the questionnaire. The ratings will then be automatically applied to the title. Existing titles will need to complete the IARC rating
process no later than March 1, 2017 to avoid removal from the Oculus Store.
