Al Fin, You Sexy Thing!

Teledildonics, Nanotechnology, Virtual Reality

Most people have heard of teledildonics, the family of technologies that allows people to sexually stimulate each other from a distance. Presently the technology is limited to remote controlled vibrators and other simple machine stimulators. Eventually, the technology is going to get much more sophisticated.

If you have ever watched one of the Star Trek shows featuring a "holodeck", you may have wondered how in the world solid objects could appear from empty space--even convincing simulations of walking, talking, touching, human beings. More than one crew member had to be reprimanded for fornicating with holodeck "beings." Well, I am making that up, but you can certainly imagine that it might be true sometime in the future, on some star ship somewhere.

Anyway, you do not have to wonder any longer about the technology involved. There is a type of nanotechnology that has been theorised called "utility fog." Utility fog can sit in a room, invisible to the naked eye, then when activated it can simulate solid objects. Here is a list of links for learning more about utility fog and how it might be made and used.

There is quite a gap between a bluetooth controlled vibrator and a fully animated, touch-realistic holodeck partner. No doubt remote controlled realistic sex robots incorporating haptics sensors and actuators will attempt to fill the gap in the near future. These things tend to be talked about for years before they suddenly happen. Certainly there is a lot of money to be made by this type of technology. It may even make some long distance relationships more viable.
