This futuristic dildo can do practically anything except make toast

This year has already seen some pretty exciting new sex toys, but this one may just top them all. It's a dildo that is not only fully customizable, but you can actually control it with your mind. It's called the Mod, and it's as futuristic as it sounds.

The Mod was developed by an "open-source sex technology" company called Comingle, which creates all things interactive, stimulating and DIY-friendly. This particular invention seems to encompass all these things. It's made to be completely programmable by you the user, and can even respond to outside stimuli like music beats or even your lover's movements.

You charge it using its USB outlet — which is also how you can customize it using apps from Comingle's website. It even comes with plug-and-play controllers (a la Wii nunchucks) that sync with your partner's heartbeat. I honestly can't decide if I'm excited or freaked out by the idea of using something I play virtual archery with on my intimate places.

But it goes even further. If you're a techie, and would like to fiddle with gadgetry to make your dildo completely unique, you can opt for just the motherboard (appropriately named the "Dilduino") and the three motors to construct your own version of the Mod. Or, you can get the completed Mod with a sensor kit, so you can teach it to work for you using just your mind and body. Now that's a seriously futuristic dildo if ever I heard of one! Check out the other dildo packages the company is offering on their Indiegogo campaign site.

The company is so classy and dedicated to this idea that for a mere $40,000 they'll give you and some friends a private party on an airplane complete with all their dildos. Now that's called joining the mile-high club in style.

If you're curious to learn more about the mind-control aspects of this futuristic dildo, here's a fun, instructive video for you from Comingle's website:

Basically, you hook your head up to a sensor and four electrodes, and the Mod gets signals via bluetooth from your brain. It can respond to things like blinking, jaw clenching and excitement levels. It even slows the vibration speed down when you're mellowing out post sexy time. Pretty cool, huh?

While you may still (understandably) be a little intimidated by this guy, the company has a great reason for you to give it a try. As I said, they are an open-source company, which means they want people to explore and experiment with their invention, and make it their own. They share all their plans and codes, and even have easy-to-follow instructions if you're less into trying things on your own. The point is to help today's lovers be more creative and hands-on in the bedroom using awesome technology that is finally available to us.

So whether you're looking to seriously rev up your sex life with your partner, or enjoy a totally customized sexual experience on your own, the Mod may be your perfect new toy. If you pre-order it through their website you can have it by July, otherwise it looks to hit retail stores in August.
