Soft robotics is a quickly emerging field that takes a lot of inspiration from marine creatures like squids and starfish. A light-controlled hydrogel was recently developed that could be used for control of these new robotic devices, but now researchers at North Carolina State University are taking the development of soft robotic devices to a new level with electrically-charged hydrogels.

The “ionoprinting” technique, as the team has dubbed it, uses a copper electrode to inject positively-charged copper ions into a hydrogel material (a highly absorbent polymer material that is nearly 99.9 percent water). The copper ions bond with negatively charged ions n the hydrogel’s polymer network, creating a more robust and mechanically stiffer structure.

Applying an electrical current then causes the hydrogel to flex. Although electrical fields have been used to actuate hydrogel materials before, this is the first time that electromechanically active electrodes have been used to drive the motion. Also, this is the first time that the binding of ions has been used to create a more rigid hydrogel network in this way.

As well as being able to fold hydrogels significant distances within seconds, the technology allows the application of modest voltages to locally tune the mechanical properties of hydrogels to create physically-reinforcing exoskeletons. The copper ions can be injected into specific sections of the hydrogel material for more precise movement, with the resulting pattern of ions stable in water for a period of months. The more ions that are injected, the greater the hydrogel’s bending capabilities.

“We are currently planning to use this technique to develop motile, biologically compatible microdevices,” says Dr. Orlin Velev, INVISTA Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at NC State.

This gives the technique potential in not only soft robotics, but also many other biomedical applications. Artificial muscles, enviro-intelligent sensors, actuators, biomimetic microbots, micropatterned thin films, cell scaffolds and drug-delivery are just some of the other potential applications for the technology according to the researchers.

The team’s paper is published in the journal Nature Communications.

In my ongoing quest to discover new products and technologies, I came upon this article about a group of Harvard University scientists that announced the discovery and development of a highly-hydrophobic material knows as SLIPS. What is so amazing is that this material be continuously tweaked between hydrophobic and hydrophilic states. Applications may include self-cleaning optics, textiles, building materials, and of course, adult novelty products! You can read the entire article here.

It was just another day in the wonderful world of Google when they announced Glass—a pair of sleek eyewear that could change the world.  Texting, video chat, instant access to Google and all of its services, their preview video shows its users partaking in everything from virtually sharing a birthday experience to flinging themselves around on a trapeze.  Their preview did not, however, explore the possibilities that open up for the adult entertainment industry.

Picture this:  you’re at home watching the latest Joanna Angel release on DVD.  You hit the orgy scene and a particular tattooed beauty catches your eye.  Within seconds, you’ve shifted from the standard view to a point-of-view shot recorded by the Glass eyewear her partner had on.  While recording, he looks up at a pink-haired porn star, and you shift again, bouncing around the orgy’s performers.

But it’s not about just changing angles on professional shoots. Glass has infinitely expanded the capabilities and range of point-of-view amateur porn.  No more phones or handheld video cameras handicapping the participants –both hands are now in use—which will create a range of more in depth and creative motion that the amateur industry has been unable to achieve until this point.

Upskirting, recording sex in public, erotic video chat… we want to know what will you do with Glass?

We are witnessing the technological progress unfold in front of our eyes and soon this seemingly futuristic technology will be both available and affordable for all. No longer is this science fiction, this is our reality.

Launched in 2003 by the industrial design and engineering team of Eric Kalen, Carl Magnuson, and Filip Sedic, intimate lifestyle company LELO has since expanded from a single office in Stockholm to a worldwide brand with over 200 employees in the U.S., Australia, Asia, and Europe.  Now selling in over 40 international markets, LELO has more than doubled its sales volume annually since its inception.

At an average retail price of $100 per vibrator, LELO’s luxury products range from the diminutive “lipstick” model, MIA, and the motion-controlled, waterproof TIANI, to the ultra-high end, 24-karat gold-plated INEZ, priced at $15,000.  In 2010, LELO expanded its offerings to include cuffs, ties, and blindfolds, as well as massage oils, candles, and a water-based personal moisturizer.  In 2011, LELO debuted its SUSSURRA line of silk lingerie and loungewear, as well as PicoBong, a lower-priced brand designed to appeal to a younger clientele.  Every one of LELO’s products is certified as body-safe before being brought to market.

LELO’s products have been featured in Forbes,Cosmopolitan, Elle, Women’s Health, Maxim, GQ, Wired, and the New York Times, among others.  LELO recently appeared at the Las Vegas Consumer Electronics Show, and has signed partnerships to sell its products through Walgreens, Apoteket, and Wynn Las Vegas, as well as luxury boutiques in Los Angeles, New York, London, Paris, Rome, Berlin, and its native Stockholm.
