It's no secret that we've been interested in Vibease around here since the team pitched its unusual product at our first Startup Asia conference. We've been waiting patiently for the vibrator/app hybrid, which began pre-orders back in February, and today there's finally some good news: the Android app has officially launched. An announcement email from Vibease also said that the iPhone app would be in app stores "soon," and that the team was working on a new version of the vibrator attachment as well. I downloaded the Android app and took it for a little spin, although as a male I don't really have the, ahem, hardware to properly assess it. And, of course, since Vibease's actual hardware (a bluetooth vibrator) isn't out yet, for now the app just vibrates your phone. Still, it looks like when the hardware is there, Vibease will be ready to make a big splash. The app includes a variety of ambient sound loops along with photographs and 11 pre-programmed vibration settings from "gentle touch" all the way up to "rock me hard." Whether or not this does anything for you is probably going to depend on how hard your phone is capable of vibrating, but that's only a problem until the vibrator attachment comes out.
But of course, the point of this whole thing is that it allows partners to play remotely, and in the in-app chat, partners can create customized vibration patterns. That isn't going to be too useful just yet either -- I'm guessing it's hard to masturbate with and chat on a phone at the same time -- but once that bluetooth vibrator comes out, this app is going to be something every couple should be interested in. We're looking forward to hearing from Vibease when the vibrator hardware is finally ready for launch. It sounds like that should be pretty soon. But until then, enjoy this over-the-top video advertisement for Vibease:
