    Woman launches lawsuit against Canadian vibrator maker

    TORONTO — An American woman has launched a proposed class-action lawsuit against the Canadian-owned maker of a smartphone-enabled vibrator, alleging the company sells products that secretly collect and transmit “highly sensitive” information.

    The Chicago-area woman, identified in a statement of claim only as N.P., has made her complaints against Standard Innovation (US) Corp., which is owned by the Ottawa-based Standard Innovation Corp, over a “high-end” vibrator called the We-Vibe.

    The lawsuit, which was filed earlier this month in an Illinois court, explains that to fully operate the device, users download the We-Connect app on a smartphone, allowing them and their partners remote control over the Bluetooth-equipped vibrator’s settings.

    In particular, the app’s “connect lover” feature — which promises a secure connection — allows partners to exchange text messages, conduct video chats and control a paired We-Vibe device, the woman’s statement of claim said.

      That is actually the most icky uses for technology that I have ever heard of.  And I don’t suppose it will end there either.

      3. I think that is hilarious . . .

      Just wait – someone will get charged with “remote rape” because they forgot they were using the remote/smart vibrator, then get a “call” . . . 

      :rofl:

      We are a silly species . . .

      Why is it when we get older, we can remember the tiniest details from our youth, but not where we put our reading glasses 30 seconds ago?
