Quickly make a banana, a beverage, your bed frame, a spanking paddle, or even your sex partner into a touch-sensitive controller for your dildo! Synchronize the pleasurable feelings of a metal head massager with your dildo, or play your lover’s body like a theremin!
Turn Your Partner into a Sensor!
You can find more creative ways to use capacitive touch by incorporating a partner! We simply attached a clip to standard metal body jewelry (Melanie’s ring). You can use all sorts of body piercings as conducting elements for capacitive touch sensing. Notice how proximity works!
You can create multiple variations in the intensity of your Mod’s vibrational patterns given the type of contact you make with the sensing device! Try out different types of piercings (nose, ear, genital) and discover the different types of responses you get when the electrical capacitance penetrates your body differently! (FYI we’re co-workers not partners! Just demonstrating!)
Computer Vision processes the pixels coming into a computer from a camera to sense and understand things about the world. One example of this is the Face-tracking software built into many cameras and video-chatting software these days. Because the Mod can talk with computers very easily (by just plugging it in), you can use many computer vision programs to control how your dildo works!
In this example we show you how to control your dildo with your computer’s webcam. Watch several examples of many different types of interactions. With a simple computer vision program, your dildo can respond to: dancing, waving, thrusting, blinking, or even ambient scenes like an aquarium or tree branches swaying in the wind.
As we showed in an ealier How-To, hooking a potentiometer knob is one of the easiest ways to control any device. Joysticks are basically two potentiometers connected to each other. These are pretty much just as easy to connect to your Mod, and provide an powerful, intuitive way to control it.
Using the simple code below, you can explore the joystick by moving it up, down, side-to-side, or even give it a twirl!
Playing with a Potentiometer
Using a potentiometer with Comingle’s Mod is a fun and basic way to control the vibration intensity of your dildo. It’s super simple to setup a basic sensor like a potentiometer with the Mod. Just plug in 3 wires, and Comingle already has code for you for you to run on your device for instant exploration. We invite you to experiment with the potentiometer by turning the knob left and right. Figure out the right intensity for your ideal vibe!
Investigating Heartbeat Sensor with the MOD Device
Since the MOD is a dildo platform, you can hook up any kind of sensor you wish that would normally work with an Arduino.
We have devised a way to use heartbeat sensing with the MOD device! Sounds exciting right? Well, it absolutely is and Comingle wants to share this information with you! Below you will find our step-by-step tutorial on how you can experience this phenomenon for yourself… or even share the experience with a partner!
Using Heartbeat Sensor With the MOD!
How Does it Work?
Before we get started on explaining the set up for heartbeat sensing with your MOD, it may be useful to know a bit more on how this anomaly works. Essentially, an individual will strap on the heartbeat sensor to their chest, which will allow for the sensor to send a signal to the breadboard (which we will also learn to fabricate in this tutorial). The breadboard works specifically in partnership with the heartbeat sensor, allowing for the heartbeat to be detected and transmitted through the USB’s breakout board, which will then send the heartbeat’s pulse to the MOD device. This process is the technical essence of which the MOD operates in conjunction with heartbeat sensing.
These are example sketches for controlling the Multivibe prototypes at our Good Vibrations workshop.
