The company founders (two Georgia Tech Ph.D students, a GA Tech grad and a Georgia State University grad) view the Mod as way to build a sex-positive DIY community by turning tech play into the new foreplay: "Sex and DIY have always gone hand-in-hand. We want to maintain that relationship as technology begins to play a greater role in the bedroom. The open-source software and hardware movements have provided excellent examples of how to make great, accessible, and customizable programs and products that encourage exploration. By applying the principles and practices of open-source to sex tech, we can encourage hackers to explore sexuality and people interested in sexuality to explore technology."
The Mod's website even has instructions (https://www.comingle.io/howto/mind-controlled-dildo) on how the dildo can be controlled by your --or your partner's-- mind."
