Durex in Australia has introduced a protoype underwear that lets people actually “touch each other over the internet”. The video demonstration has been viewed 3.2 million times in the past six days.

A prototype iPhone app uses technology that sends a wireless signal between smartphones and then transfers it to touch-actuators woven into the fabric of the underwear. So, when one person touches the phone, the feeling transfers the sensation of touch instantly through their underwear to the other person’s skin. Learn about the technology in this video. Says one of the inventors “People are going to want this.”
