Patents by Category:
1. Massage or Stimulation Devices
U.S. Patent No. 9,993,386
Title: Instrumentation absolute value differential amplifier circuit and applications
Abstract: An instrumentation absolute value differential amplifier is used as part of an electroencephalogram, electromyogram or electrocardiogram to quantify the excitation state of a user, processing and transmitting this information as a control signal for a user feedback device. In one possible arrangement, this feedback device includes a wireless sex toy which responds to the sent control information, acting as a mind controlled sex toy. This provides a simple, intuitive, aesthetically appealing interface for creating a unique sexual experience. The use of an instrumentation absolute value differential amplifier is sufficient to monitor the desired signals while reducing the number of parts required and allowing for less precise tolerances than traditional biological monitoring circuits, thus decreasing the cost of production.

U.S. Patent No. 9,949,890
Title: Garment with remote controlled vibration array
Abstract: A communication system and method are provided for remotely reproducing a touch pattern or gesture as a vibrotactile output. At a touch screen, a first user device receives a touch pattern by a first user, characterizes the touch pattern as a touch pattern data based upon time and intensity of touch at a plurality of array points of the touch screen, and communicates the touch pattern data to a network. A tactile array of micro-vibratory devices is attached to a garment and worn by a second user. The touch pattern data is wirelessly received from the first user device via the network. Vibration of selected micro-vibratory devices of the tactile array is modulated in timing and intensity in response to the touch pattern data to reproduce the touch pattern.

According to the present invention an elastic strap (8) is arranged within the aperture (4) or at least in alignment with the aperture (4) wherein the ends of the strap (8) are connected to connection points (10) at the inner edge (6,7) of the aperture (4) or at portions of the body (2) adjacent to the aperture (4), and where in the connection points (10) are positioned opposite to each other relative to the aperture (4) and the length of the strap (8) between its both ends is greater than the distance between the connection points (10) so that the strap (8) is able to be optionally brought into a first position (FIG. 4a) so as to limit the aperture (4) for defining a first aperture cross-section area (4.1) or a second (FIG. 4d) position opposite to the first position relative to the aperture (4) so as to limit the aperture (4) for defining a second aperture cross-section (4.2) area which is larger than the first aperture cross-section area (4.1).
U.S. Patent No. 9,962,314
Title: Sexual aid method and appliance with passageway for intimate massage
Abstract: The Sexual Aid Method and Appliance with Passageway for Intimate Massage enables individuals and/or couples to enjoy the vast array of health benefits of breast massage. This enables a penis to travel in a defined path over or in between breasts to massage the penis, breast tissue and/or the area in between the breasts. The movement of the penis within the defined path induces flexing of the appliance that further massages the surrounding breast tissue. At least one sternum passageway, tube passageway, breast passageway or passageway enhancer guides the penis. This versatile, economical, non-surgical, green-technology appliance creates at least one passageway that is independent of body contours to allow individuals to experience breast tissue massage, massage of the area in between the breasts and/or hands-free mammary coitus.
U.S. Patent No. 9,943,663
Title: Erotic dream induction apparatus
Abstract: An erotic dream induction apparatus includes an inflatable air bladder, such as a rubber balloon, to induce sexual arousal via genital stimulation. The air bladder is brought into contact with either the penis or vagina of the user, and/or is inserted into the anus and/or vagina of the user. In one embodiment, the air bladder is brought into contact with the penis, vagina, and/or anus of the user by being maintained in position near, against, or around the penis, vagina, and/or anus by means of straps or pockets in stimulation underwear, such that when the air bladder is inflated, the air bladder makes contact with at least a portion of the penis, vagina, and/or anus of the user. The air bladder is repeatedly inflated and deflated by pumps and/or valves.
U.S. Patent No. 9,937,097
Title: Stimulation device having an appendage
Abstract: A stimulation device is provided in accordance with one embodiment. The stimulation device includes a chamber which has a flexible wall portion. A drive unit of the stimulation device is in physical communication with the flexible wall portion so as to cause deflections of the flexible wall portion in opposing directions, thereby resulting in a changing volume of the chamber. The changing volume of the chamber results in modulated positive and negative pressures with respect to a reference pressure. An opening of the stimulation device is for applying the modulated positive and negative pressures to a body part. An appendage of the stimulation device may be used as a handle to allow a user to position the stimulation device over the body part. The stimulation device includes a control device for controlling the drive unit.
U.S. Patent No. 10,004,659
Title: Sexual aid
Abstract: A sexual aid device that is configured to provide pleasurable stimulation to an erogenous zone of a human body wherein the sexual aid is configured to transmit video images to a remote source. The sexual aid includes a body that is phallic in shape and includes a first end and a second end. A stimulation member is disposed within the body and is configured to provide vibration. A camera is installed on the second end of the body and is operable to provide video images to a transceiver mounted to said first end of said body. A control panel is secured to the second end of the body and is operable to provide control of the stimulation member and camera. A light is further included being secured to the second end of the body and further being adjacent to the camera.
U.S. Patent No. 9,987,190
Title: Shared cybernetics using gestures
Abstract: A vibrator sex toy is provided with touch-based sensors for an ergonomic in-situ method of controlling the operation and intensity of the vibrator. The vibrator sex toy has an internal end, an external end and a middle staging section. The staging section includes a control circuit and batteries. The internal end includes electric vibrator motors connected to the control circuit by wires. The external end includes ergonomically placed touch sensors that behave like variable resistors. The touch sensors respond to natural human gestures such as grasping, stretching, compressing and bending the external end of the sex toy with changes in resistance. The touch sensors are connected to the control circuit by wires and act as potentiometers in the control path of the vibrator motors. The user is able to vary the sensations from the motors intuitively and in-situ by manipulating the external end or applying it to a partner.
