The feminine-care aisle at your local convenience store could be getting a little more buzzy in the near future. Harnessing the power of the Internet, Durex teamed up with a pair of technology designers to develop the world's first wearable, tech-infused line of lingerie (finally, right?) that "transfers touch across vast distances."

Durex videotaped the first live trial of its vibrating skivvies and the participants definitely seem to be enjoying themselves. Whether it's the Fundies or not is up for debate.

They are an attractive piece of technology." As far as sexy tech goes, we're always happy to see products that cater equally to both genders in the pleasure department. Check out the videos below to see the design process and the Fundawear in action...potentially NSFW, it goes without saying.
