Specifically designed for couples that frequently spend long periods of time apart, Fundawear is basically a pair of vibrating undies that can be controlled by an iPhone from anywhere in the world.

The app presents the user with a diagram of your partner’s body parts and touching the screen stimulates them through vibration in the underwear.

Skype is likely to get a little more interesting for couples once the product is released. Right now there isn’t a release date, but at Durex’s Facebook page you can sign up to be one of the lucky ones to receive a prototype.

A tantalising concept, just be careful if you happen to grab the wrong pair of undies before you go to work. You never know when your partner might want to say hello.
