Ambrosia goes to production!

Thanks to your generous support, the Ambrosia Vibe is no longer a fantasy; it's a reality. Because of you, we reached our minimum funding goal in week 1!

2. Science is sexy, but sometimes you want that sexiness to be subtle. We understand. Every order will be shipped via USPS in a discreet, brown box addressed from Boulder Applied Physics (the actual name of our company). Nothing on the outside of your package will identify the fun inside ;)

Introducing.png

The Ambrosia Vibe is a new type of strap-on dildo that responds to touch. The unique Ambrosia Pressure Sense Technology™ perceives motion on the dildo and transfers sensation to the user via a vibrator at the base of the unit. The Ambrosia Vibe allows the strap-on wearer to actually "feel" the sexual stimulation applied to the dildo!

We believe this is a game-changing toy with all sorts of awesome possibilities for gender bending and body hacking. Be 1 of 200 people that own the Ambrosia Vibe for $50 off the retail price when you pre-order during our Indiegogo campaign. 

The Ambrosia is specifically designed to be very, very simple to use, to do what all good technology should do: disappear and let the user get on with their business.

“One of the most liberating uses for technology in general is to free individuals from the constraints of their bodies, whether it’s letting us see things hundreds of miles away, fly, or live underwater. Our technology lets people not born with a biological penis have a richer experience as they play with sensation of their new ‘organ.’ We hope that this improves people’s lives and makes them happier with whatever their sexual and gender identity are.” 
--Dr. X. Treme, inventor

Ambrosia Touch Response: 

A “vein” that senses pressure from massage with the mouth, hand, and other parts of the body runs along the underside of the Ambrosia dildo. The pressure applied to this vein is transmitted via a tube to the control box. The control box measures pressure using some extremely sexy math (see image below), and the bullet vibe in the base of the dildo vibrates in response. The strap-on is designed to be worn in a harness with the base positioned against the wearer’s clitoris, so they can feel the stimulation.

Ways to Play with Ambrosia:

Why Crowdfund the Ambrosia?

Although we have seen success with our flagship product, the X1 Orgasmatron, we are still just a tiny company- there are less than 10 of us! We are asking for your help in this campaign so that we can:

  1. Cover manufacturing costs. Making stuff is expensive! There are a number of up-front capital investment costs that we need to pay for before we can bring Ambrosia to you. The money raised in this campaign will help us cover prototyping and parts, as well as shipping and consultation fees.  

  2. Support and celebrate sexual and gender diversity. The Ambrosia allows users to play in a completely novel way. Our hope with this toy and this campaign is that we can work together to open up a dialogue about body exploration and build the conversation about intimacy and pleasure.

drxtreme.png Dr. X. Treme

Doctor X. Treme is the inventor of our flagship product, the X1 Orgasmatron. He is also CEO and co-founder of Orgasmatronics, Inc.

When Doctor X. Treme was a child he dreamed of becoming an inventor. His aspirations led him to the field of physics and his studies earned him a PhD from Yale University. After graduation the Doctor took a job in a government lab. He spent the next six years erecting quantum measurement devices for low temperature physics. While the work was engaging, Treme found it constricting and oppressive, like wearing pants. He grew weary of the military’s involvement in his field. To the Doctor, applied physics was about more than advanced weaponry.

One fateful night, his wife made a simple request. “Build me a sex machine?” she asked. And just like that, Doctor X. Treme quit his government job, took off his pants, and got to work.

These days, the Doctor dedicates his time to coupling science and technology in the bedroom. He researches ways to use physical principles to enhance the lives of (extra)ordinary people. And in his spare time, he ceaselessly battles injustice while exploring time and space in his unreliable time machine. Okay, that last bit isn’t true... yet.

She is a queer, polyamorous, bespectacled drummer. She believes socks and scarves are the sexiest items of clothing especially when worn exclusively.

Ma'Belle has been voraciously exploring and expanding her own sexuality and awareness of others' for about 12 years.
