is officially present on the show floor at CES 2020, the world's biggest tech convention. You can thank one company for that: Lora DiCarlo. Its micro-robotic Osé device -- but that award was when the governing body behind CES realized it was a sex device. The controversy and public outcry that followed lead to sex tech being (on a trial basis).
Lora DiCarlo triumphantly returned to Las Vegas on Sunday at CES Unveiled, an appetizer for the main show that opens Tuesday, with two new products. And guess what? They both scored official innovation accolades.
Joining Osé are Baci and Onda. Baci is a "microrobotic pleasure device that simulates the feel and motion of the human lips and tongue," while the Onda is designed to replicate the motion of human fingers. Both were Honorees in this year's CES Innovation Awards.
They're essentially the two parts that make up the Osé. The Osé uses advanced micro-robotics to produce a blended orgasm using movements that are supposed to provide an experience closer to being with a human partner. The device incorporates five pending patents for robotics, biomimicry and engineering feats in an effort to make it more advanced than other sexual health devices.
While the Osé is available now for $290, the Baci and Onda will launch in March.
