Deep down all escorts share a common fear… That their clients don’t shower before they see them. That is a legit concern (shower boys, it makes Everyone happier:)), but not what this article is about. No, it is something much deeper: an existential threat to our very way of life.
What I’m referring to, much like John Conner, is the rise of the machines. It’s hard not to read the news these days and not come across some article about recent advances in artificial intelligence or robotics.
Just last month a computer totally dominated the best Go player in the world (Wired Article Here). In case you’re not familiar with Go, which I wasn’t, it’s an ancient Chinese board game that is infinitely more complicated than chess. Experts thought it would be decades before an algorithm could take out top lEvel players, and yet it just happened.
What Does This Mean For The Escort Industry?
Recent history shows that the sex industry often drives the tech world. Back in the 1980’s VHS technology became ubiquitous because porn studios preferred it to the competing Beta Max format for home movies. More recently, Blu-Ray beat out the similar (and by some account superior) HD-DVD to become the high def optical disc of choice also partly in part to the adult industry favoring Blu-ray.
Humans love to invent stuff and the love to have sex. Combine those forces and you’ve got a recipe for powerful change. With this in mind, it isn’t hard to see a future with robotic sexbots that are so lifelike that most people prefer them to the real thing. Gasp! We at Atlantic Escorts think that would be a horrible outcome. For no other reason than the fact that we just can’t comprehend how a computer could be as witty and fun as Eve. Or how any human engineer could use synthetic parts to construct an ass anywhere close to as delectable as Brooke’s.
Still, the march or sex tech moves ever forward and we may be living in a golden age where humans still do prefer intimacy with other humans and we get the benefit of some pretty awesome devices that only enhance our trysts.
Which brings us to..
The Mod: The World’s First Open Source Dildo
A Tech Startup in Atlanta, USA, is constructing a technological marvel of a sex device. In 2013 they started an IndiGoGo campaign to build the Mod: a high quality vibrator that can do just about anything. They’re project was fully crowdfunded (you can still donate and be one of the first to get a Mod at https://igg.me/at/mod/x.
I haven’t had the pleasure of using one.. Yet. But just check out a few of these features:
– A standard, simple, and powerful control for the toy. The joystick can manipulate power and pulsing patterns. Shaking the nunchuck’s accelerometer can modulate the frequency of the vibrations. To fulfill one major request from Beta testers, we also programmed the “C” button as an easy “kill switch” to shut the toy off right when you come!
-A heartbeat sensor lets you feel your partner’s arousal in the throbbing toy. This one is a real favorite — it’s super cool to feel the rhythm increase with your partner’s excitement.
-We process the image coming from a webcam. The more movement in the image, the more intense the Mod’s response.
And many more. The code for the vibrator is open source so anyone and program new actions, patterns or anything, the sky’s the limit!
I’m really excited about this thing. Not only does it show remarkable ingenuity by one person to conceive of the idea, the fact that it got so quickly funded on Indigogo shows just what hunger there is in the world for exploring amazing ways to amplify sexual pleasure through technology.
If you have had the pleasure of using a mod, please get in touch and tell us all the details. I’m sure one of our kinky escorts on tour would love to hear about it.
