The Open-Sourced Dildo

The importance of free software isn’t limited to technology; the open-source movement is currently evolving to include more intimate areas of our lives. Last year the Multivibrating Open-Source Dildo (MOD) was launched after a successful crowdfunding campaign. This hackable sex toy is programmed via a modified Arduino-based board and can react to any sensor you plug in to it. Next to that, it is USB rechargeable.

The MOD is the brainchild of tech company Comingle, and is indented to become fully customizable. By implementing a customized Arduino board, this sex toy is capable of interfacing with just about anything. From responding to literature to syncing it with your partner’s heartbeat to pulsating along the lines of your Twitter feed, the MOD can do that. It even works with a brain-sensing headband that gets you off with thought alone.

While The MOD comes with its very own vibration patterns, the user can design new ones on their website or code their own completely unique patterns, and share them online with friends. A stranger may soon build the best feature yet. Besides that, Comingle provides a so-called OSSex library, where the sex-hacking community can exchange and critique their sensor and hacking combos.

The MOD appears to succeed in bringing sex-positive hacking to the mainstream –and build a supportive community around it. So whether you feel you are doomed to a solitary life, or just want to make your sexual experiences better, note there are hackable technologies in the world to help a hand.
