Say goodbye to the blowup doll. Charlotte-based Adult Entertainment Broadcast Network (AEBN), the largest provider of video-on-demand services for the adult entertainment industry, has developed the RealTouch men's virtual-sex device. The toy, the size of a small toaster, simulates sex onto the, um, male member by replicating feeling and motions from scenes in videos. After design and testing that included work by a former NASA engineer (is this how they keep busy in space?), the RealTouch became a reality. The real kicker? It costs a cool $149.99. Maybe the blowup doll ain't so bad after all.
