The Wi-Fi enabled device features two parts (‘Zeus’ and ‘Hera’), which can be used miles apart. The smart device senses your actions then transmits them, so they’re physically reflected on the other device – providing a real-time virtual sex experience.

Geek chic

Breathable chocolate

A lipstick-shaped aerosol that sprays particles of dark chocolate into the mouth is being hailed as the next big thing for calorie-conscious consumers. (Many tx Natasha)
