Wankband: Charge Your Phone While You Self Pleasure

Wankband: Charge Your Phone While You Self Pleasure

Having a quickie with yourself is nothing to be embarrassed about. In fact, having a bit of a fiddle could be doing the world some good.

That is, if you use PornHub’s new piece of wearable technology that creates electricity from movement, primarily when the hand is going up and down if you get the drift.

“Every day, millions of hours of adult content are consumed online, wasting energy in the process and hurting the environment,” the Wankband site explains.

“At Pornhub we decided to do something about it. Introducing The Wankband: The first wearable tech that allows you to love the planet by loving yourself.”

While still in its beta testing phase, the new innovative piece of tech hasn’t failed to make waves across the webs.

However, one Twitter user noticed that the device may only be appropriate for men right now, as the device creates energy when the wrist is moved in an up and down motion. This energy is then stored in a kinetic charger inside the device.

However, the PornHub video insists it’s still applicable to women.

It’s a new turn on the wearable tech space, which has been raging in the past few years.

The fitness industry has jumped on board, with a number of pieces of tech to grab data, record how much sleep you’ve had, what you’ve eaten and how much running around you’ve done.

Apple has made a splash with its Apple Watch, recently launching programmatic ads for the wearable.

Aussie beer brand VB jumped on the wearable bandwagon with its summer campaign, a cricket watch, that lets fans keep up to date with where the ball’s bouncing.

And global media buying agency Mindshare launched its very own wearable tech unit to keep on top of all the tech business around the place.

However, a study by research company Accenture suggests consumers will slow down on the uptake of wearable devices.

At the end of last year Google halted the sales of its much-hyped Google Glass with Kevin Moreland from full-service agency BCM saying people look like wankers wearing it.

“You see the real issue is not whether Glass is feature packed, the deal-breaker is that wearing Glass makes you look and feel plain weird. And when you look and feel weird, well, you weird people out,” he said.

“I wore it at home, around the office, and in public. The people who know me best told me straight-up.

“My 13-year-old daughter quietly took me aside and told me it made me look like a creepy psycho. Her older brother overheard our conversation and agreed.”

Will the Wankband gear up the wearable space again? Or will it just be shooting blanks?
