Developers control vibrator using brain waves



Application program interface (API) artist Aurélien Fache and Gille de Bast, an artist who works with on brain-computer interfaces (BCI), with Stephen des Aulnois (founder of Le Tag Parfait magazine) successfully controlled a Lovense Lush vibrator using only brain waves.

“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 Stephen des Aulnois, where he used three electrodes to measure brain activity, heartbeat, and electrical activity of the neurons from the visual cortex behind the left hemisphere of the brain. He 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 over 40,000 people. The third 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.”
