Philips designs all sorts of wild things, from food concepts for 2030 to stoves for the poor to “emotion shirts” for gamers. And yet this may be the most left-field design we’ve seen from the company: A series of sex toys, designed for couples use. In addition to buzzing–or “purring,” as Philips describes it–one of the toys also heats up. Their intricate contours are meant to suit both male and female erogenous zones.

[Now, can someone PLEASE PLEASE do a (degree) project on sexual experience design please?? Philips is doing it… Its bound to be the most fun project ever!]

Yeah! There’s more sex interactions somewhere on this blog. (at least Arse Electronica) It’s quite challenging to design such stuff, but still very important. And now that Philips is doing it, I think the big step in doing such things has been taken. This year the trendy subjects were food and biotech, at least if you look at RCA stuff http://www.di09.rca.ac.uk/ , what’s going on in the design world and in Umeå. And yes I’m a trendy bastard. So next year’s trendy stuff… I predict sex, money… what else I don’t know yet. Someone please take sex, it’s important, fun, everywhere and not an everyday subject.

I wanted to design for lust for my degree project. But I guess it’ll already be passé when the time comes.
