Submission + - Pattent suit in haptic feedback...about sex toys

ruin20 writes: Techdirt just posted a story on a haptic feedback lawsuit. The article opens up to discuss:

Joe Mullin has the details of a rather bizarre patent dispute involving a patent covering the user interface of force feedback technology used in "cybersex" or "teledildonics."
Now this is a sticky situation becasue the company pressing the suit doesn't want to the bad pr of being associated in this industry so they licenced the dirty work to a shell patent troll, who now wants a piece of their other settlements with more mainstream products. So it looks like we got a pattent threesome cluster, well you get the idea...
