Condom maker Durex has just announced its latest innovation, Durex Fundawear, app-controlled underwear that allows couples to connect even when separated by distance.
Durex Fundawear works by wiring the technology normally used to make smartphones vibrates into underwear for men and women. These actuators can then be remotely stimulated via a smartphone app with sensors in different locations within the garments.

According to the Durex Australia Facebook page, Durex Fundawear is being designed to improve “the ultimate pleasure” and is a produce of the condom manufacturer’s durexperiment project.
Durexperiment is about “testing new ideas and produces to push the limits of pleasure”, with Fundawear aims at couples in long distance relationships. The vibrating underwear could be used to “tease, tickle and tantalise even when apart” said the Durex Fundawear YouTube videos.
The specially designed knickers, boxers and bras will be paired with companion smartphone apps that show a basic diagram of the partnering underwear. Upon these diagrams are round touch screen buttons positioned in various points on the virtual underwear. Of course, when pressed these buttons correspond to the location on the other person’s underwear, allowing users to make contact with their partner even when not in the same room.
The app also recognises the pace and intensity of the touchscreen input, with the Durex Fundawear vibrations matching this.
Durex has dubbed the vibrating underwear the “future of foreplay”, but a commercial release date is currently unknown. The condom company is reaching out to couples willing to partake in the testing program.
