    From Gizmodo, but they're just the messenger.
    Mighty Mighty Fleshlight

    ...the guy at SlashDong decided to take a Fleshlight and make it into an input device for his computer. The whole thing costs about $100ish, and consists of a cap replacement for the Fleshlight, a control box, a rubber tube, and a USB cable. Oh, and an actual sex game to use it with. You didn't think you could use this to Photoshop, did you?

    The end result, after programming the computer to think that this makeshift device is a mouse, is that you can use your wang to simulate having sex with a woman on screen. Of course, it's an incredibly ugly woman with 1995-era graphics, but it corresponds to your penile motions. Is this a revolution in sexual computing? Are we going to see more of these devices in the future? We think yes.

    I can almost hear nerds all over the world shouting to the skies "our troubles are over!".

    There's just some things that technology shouldn't replace, and sex is one of them.

    A man can dream, can't he?

    I think it'd be way more satisfying to play and win video games with your own penis.

    The future has arrived, my big question is how well is it grounded?

    If only it worked with 3DS Max! I could do to the software what it's been doing to me for years!

    All I have to add is that I await the first headline 'NERD FOUND ELECTRIFIED IN MOTHER'S BASEMENT, PC COVERED IN HARD WHITE SHELL'

    That is when I become a Luddite and move to Kiryat Joel.

    Whatever happened to jerking off? Remember jerking off? Didn't need a USB, there were no system requirements...

    It's a sad day.

    I know people that would be far more aroused if they could find a way to use their wacom tablet on their women than they'd ever be sticking their bits, metaphorically, into photoshop...

    The term is teledildonics.

    The scariest bit about this is that there's something called a Fleshlight - and everyone here except me seems t know what it is.

    But I have to ask - the original date on this story wasn't April 1st was it?

    No, the SCARIEST bit is that there's a word for it, and that that word is "Teledildonics", which is a scary fucking word, and it was coined in '75. 1975! Fucking hell, people.

    I think...yeah, I think if one thing could mark the beginning of the end of human civilization, this would probably be it.

    I dunno...I'm rather disappointed that you can't actually control your computer by fucking it.

    EDIT: I am also reminded of that bit from Demolition Man with the, ah, what would they be called? Sex helmets or something?
