Overview

Couples already rely on their smartphones to stay connected when they’re apart – why not take that connection to the next level?

The OhMiBod Remote App helps couples become closer than ever before.

  • Use your smartphone to control you or your partner's vibrations remotely
  • Enjoy real-time control over your partner's vibrator from anywhere

Plus, an iconic blue heart that blinks and throbs to the vibration patterns your partner is feeling!

The app is beautifully designed, easy to navigate and allows the creation of an unlimited number of vibration patterns using five exciting functionalities:

  • Voice-to-vibration
  • Touch control
  • Tap and save
  • Accelerometer
  • Preset patterns

OhMiBod Remote App currently uses a Bluetooth® connection and has received rave reviews, but many users asked us to enable it to work over long distances. Your Indiegogo contribution will help us add Wi-Fi capabilities to the app so you and your partner can keep the passion going, even when you are thousands of miles apart.

How Does OhMiBod Remote App Work?


Designed for solo or partner play, OhMiBod Remote App is a revolutionary way to connect to and control any of our OhMiBod app-compatible personal massagers with your smartphone or tablet.

ENJOY five different control modes while connected to your iOS or Android device

FEEL an insane array of vibration patterns

EXPERIENCE your partner's vibe with an iconic blue heart that blinks and throbs in real-time to sync with the vibrations they are feeling

CONTROL the intensity of the vibration patterns within each functional mode simply by adjusting the volume on your device

CONNECT while you play with in-app sexting!

Rhythm

The Rhythm mode comes loaded with a number of pre-set patterns. Periodic updates let you keep it fresh!

Wave

Using your phone’s built-in accelerometer, simply wave the phone from side to side or use it as a "gas pedal” to drive stronger and steadier vibrations. When you find a vibration pattern that works for you, simply lock it in!

Touch

Our first functionality with an improved interface, “touch” allows you to easily "favorite" a personally-created pattern and then swipe left to edit and name that custom pattern.

Tap

Simply tap the screen for up to 5 minutes in any crazy pattern you can come up with and it will play back those vibrations. The longer you hold your finger on the screen, the stronger and steadier the vibrations.

Voice

Use your own voice or any ambient sounds to create a customized looping vibration pattern. Whether it’s your partner’s voice, a song on the radio or a favorite mix at a club, this unique experience is absolutely addicting.

Why We Created the OhMiBod Remote App:

OhMiBod Founders Suki and Brian originally created the OhMiBod Remote App because they kept hearing stories about couples spending more and more time cuddling up with their smartphones and less time being intimate with each other. The husband and wife team decided it was time to create a technology that empowers people to share an enhanced level of intimacy, even over long distances. 

“We all know that technology can drive people apart, so we’ve created something that uses your digital devices to bring you closer together – no matter how far apart you are physically.” ~Suki Dunham, Founder, OhMiBod

Risks & Challenges

Our challenge, which we turned to Indiegogo to solve, was adding the Wi-Fi functionality to our OhMiBod Remote App. Before launching our Indiegogo campaign, we had finalized our plans and secured patents to put development of Wi-Fi capability for the OhMiBod Remote App in motion. All we needed was the additional funding.

With blueMotion already scheduled to be released in July with Bluetooth capability, we thought it was the perfect time to take our app to next step and make the connection even better for you and your partner.

One of the risks we faced was whether adding this functionality was something that users would see as a benefit. We had received feedback from fans at CES that adding WiFi functionality would be awesome but what about our users in the general public? Would they be interested? We wanted to see if our idea would be supported.

Contributors can support our campaign knowing that our blueMotion vibrator perk is on schedule for its release date in July.

And thanks to your overwhelming support, we can add Wi-Fi functionality to our OhMiBod Remote App!

Media

The OhMiBod blueMotion vibrator was a hit at CES 2014, the largest consumer electronics tradeshow in the country, and received tons of press about the ability to control vibrations using the OhMiBod Remote App. 

See what people are already saying about the app as we work to give it long-distance capabilities.

“OhMiBod has just laced lacy underwear with digital smartness.” 

~The India Telegraph

“It’s cute, it’s fun, and it doesn’t look at all like most vibrators.” 

~Sascha Segan, PCMag

"The couple has a full line of high-tech OhMiBod sex toys, including vibrators that align to the beat and rhythm of your favorite music, so the move into the wearable tech space was a natural progression."

~Samantha Murphy Kelly, Mashable

"When Peggy Olsen, "Mad Men's" eager-beaver copywriter, discovered the erotic pleasures of granny pants designed for weight loss-- the "electrosizer"-cum-"rejuvenator" -- she may have been ahead of her time."

~Susan Donaldson James - ABC News

"OhMiBod is a driving force for innovation in the industry. Not only are they pushing technology to the limits, but they are doing so with elegant design that Jony Ive would love."

History and Technology:

OhMiBod is the creator of the original music vibrator. Headquartered in New Hampshire, USA, the company was founded by husband and wife Brian and Suki Dunham, and is driving the evolution of the pleasure industry with an expansive range of high quality, body-safe products that combine technology with sensuality. The company is dedicated to innovating discreet personal pleasure products that are beautifully designed and fun to use. 

OhMiBod got its start in 2006, when it introduced the original “music driven” vibrator, which allows users to listen to, and more importantly “feel”, the corresponding vibration patterns of songs.  The company then re-invented the clubbing experience when it introduced the award-winning Club Vibe 2.OH – a compact wearable panty vibrator that comes with a remote and built-in microphone so users can truly feel their music. 

Club Vibe 2.OH is OhMiBod’s best-selling product and has received rave reviews. The company also received overwhelming customer feedback requesting that the remote control be integrated into smartphones, so the founders set off to create a best-in-class remote control sex toy.

The result was blueMotion™ - a Bluetooth-enabled wearable vibrator that offers an insane amount of options to control your or your lover’s vibrator discreetly using any iOS or Android smartphone. The new blueMotion vibrator is powered by the OhMiBod Remote App – a beautifully-designed and easy-to-navigate app that allows users to control the vibrator in real-time. blueMotion is scheduled to hit the market in July 2014.

OhMiBod launched blueMotion at CES 2014, the largest consumer electronics tradeshow in the country, and it was a huge success. However, almost everyone  asked the same question, "Can I control this from anywhere?"

It is for this reason that OhMiBod decided to develop Wi-Fi capabilities for the OhMiBod Remote App, which will allow you to control your partner’s vibrator from anywhere – at any time. This revolutionary project will result in an app that gives real-time control over your vibrator over long distances. OhMiBod began developing the Wi-Fi capability for the remote app after securing the sub-license to the patent, which enables any sex toy to be controlled over the Internet.

In addition to Wi-Fi capabilities, OhMiBod Remote App will also include the following unique features:

  • In-app sexting
  • Simple user interface utilizing Google Gaming services for person-to-person connections
  • Android and iOS compatibility

With your help, the app will truly be a real-time remote control for your lover’s vibe!

Design

OhMiBod Remote App-compatible vibrators are sleek, sophisticated, and fun to use. 

The design for our app-compatible vibrators originally began with the music-driven Club Vibe 2.OH, which is commonly regarded as a best-in-class wearable panty vibrator. 

All of our OhMiBod vibrators are made from body-safe materials and come with a standard 1-year warranty.   

Many of our vibrators are compatible with the OhMiBod Remote App. Adding Wi-Fi capabilities will simply make OhMiBod’s beautifully designed, playful and discreet vibrators even better.
