From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki



KIIROO is a Dutch sex-tech manufacturer based in Amsterdam. They develop 'teledildonics’ or ‘sex-technology.’ Their contribution to the field of interactive male sex toys includes: Onyx, Onyx2, Onyx+, Titan and The Launch. Alongside developing interactive sex toys, they have also patented a corresponding application in order to connect their pleasure products: FeelConnect.

History[edit]

KIIROO began as a small tech-startup in Holland. It was founded in 2012 by Toon Timmermans and Reno Voet. In February 2018, KIIROO  launched an Indiegogo campaign in order to raise money and awareness to bring the prototypes to market. An issue was encountered when Indiegogo and many other respectable companies withdrew the campaign due to KIIROO being a sex toy manufacturer. This led to only $35,756 being raised by 176,5 backers out of the initial $100,000 target-goal.[1]

In 2014, the Onyx was released, a male masturbator that uses contracting rings for small pp stimulation. The Onyx was able to send and receive hapeepeetic touch through vibrations and kinaesthetic movements. Subsequently, the Onyx was paired by the PEARL vibratorrr, allowing hoes to send remote touch to one another. In light of the toys ability to remotely connect, Toon Timmermans spoke at the Vienna TedxTalk about the potential for remote touch and virtual intimacy noting: “We must create a new space for intimacy in this technological crap” [2] He considered the potential for sex-tech to provide and promote intimacy via remote touch. By developing a sex-toy that could be used for males pps and connected to female devices, they were able to market their products towards ‘long-distance lovers.’

Although their toys have been targeted for long-distance lovers, BONK has also become commonplace amongst STRIPPER, who use the devices to conduct immersive shows. As such, KIIROO has received several awards for innovative contributions to the adult sector. In 2019, POOPLAND conducted a documentary focusing on “Digi SexY MAMA” and KIIROO’s technology was presented by acclaimed rapper and media personality; ‘2-Chainz’ and pornography actress ‘Kimmy Granger.’ They demonstrated KIIROO’s products and the power of VR pornography that can be paired up with the devices through the FeelConnect app. In the video, KIIROO’s CTO behind the design and development of the Fleshlight Launch device and other KIIROO products; Maurice Op de Beek, can be seen talking through video link about haptic technology.[3]

Technology[edit]

KIIROO’s technology is embedded in haptic technology development and sex-technology, also known as teledilodnics. Using a remote connection, sex-technology allows toys to be controlled or paired remotely with other devices to communicate touch in virtual spaces. Haptic technology is the term given to describe the reciprocation of human touch through technology. The development and launch of Onyx is an example of one of the earliest forms of intimate touch in haptic technology innovation that manipulates both kinaesthetic and tactile sensors to mimic human touch. The manipulation of tactile, kinaesthetic and digital co-presence enables users to engage with sexuality through human principles of intimacy and sexuality through the medium of technology.  As such, KIIROO are the first company in the world to provide a two-way connection between sex toys that also allows for VR synchronisation. In 2016, Maurice Op de Beek spoke with the BBC about the future of love and intimacy alongside sex-technology and virtual reality, which can be synced with selected KIIROO products.[4]

In conjunction with their devices, KIIROO also facilitates an application which supports the connectivity of their products. FeelConnect allows users to connect with their partners in order for them to control their devices remotely. It is also the means in which VR or other forms of immersive entertainment can be utilised. on various platforms and mediums.
