Developers Tinker with Lovense API, Use Brain Waves to Control Toy

PARIS—Application program interface artist Aurélien Fache and Gille de Bast, an artist who works with on brain-computer interfaces, recently reamed with Stephen des Aulnois—aka Gonzo, founder of Le Tag Parfait magazine—successfully controlled a Lovense Lush vibrator using only brain waves earlier this month.  “The idea came when we were trying to find new applications for connected sex toys on webcam websites (where Lovense sex toys can vibrate when viewers tip—they made software for this). Starting from that idea, and with access to the sex toy’s API, we were able to connect it, for instance, on Twitter hashtags or control it with the brain (through a Brain-Computer Interface),” said des Aulnois. They presented three experiments. First, a demonstration by Gonzo, where he used three electrodes to measure brain activity, heartbeat, and electrical activity of the neurons from the visual cortex, located behind the left hemisphere of the brain. Gonzo was able to control the app through the BCI in different levels of intensity—the more he concentrated, the stronger the vibrations.  Second, after further changes to Lovense API, they connected to Twitter and invited netizens to control her toy using various hashtags. The live stream on Periscope attracted more than 40,000 people.  The third experiment was labeled as “In Bed With Thomas Pesquet,” where Fache made Lovense Lush vibrate whenever the International Space Station passed over France.  “Aurélien, Gille and Stephen have done a great job showcasing what is possible with our API- love their creativity!” wrote Eddy Olivares, marketing director of Lovense. “We are looking forward to working with other companies and developers to continue to push innovation in the sex toy industry. If anyone is interested in getting access to our API, please contact us at developers@lovense.com.” To see a video demonstration of the experiment, make sure captions are on and visit Vimeo.com. Lovense is a leading sex tech company. In 2013 they launched one of the first long-distance sex toy set. In mid-2015, our toys became the first to be integrated with live-action VR porn. In late-2015, we launched the first Apple Watch controllable vibrator. In 2016, we launched the first teledildonic butt plug. We will continue to push innovation in the sex toy industry forward using technology. For more, visit Lovense.com.
