I just watched a GETV video about using twitter updates to activate a vibrator, so you can “feel” messages.
Ya know, I had a very popular “Vibe Me, Baby” webpage back in 97 & 98.
People could page me with funny messages from the web. (It was very innovative back then.
I remember it being one of the first times I grasped “digital intimacy” and the way we can be connected via the web.
Later I actually did experiments with Dildonics (controlling sex toys via the web) while I lived in a webcam house. One time I had people in multiple states vibrating different parts of my body. heh.
I actually did a demo on a Channel 4 doc in the UK. I’ll see if I can find the footage (EDIT: Found it! scroll below!).
