Mojowijo is a set of toys for him and her which uses new technology via a wii remote control over the internet. Unfortunately, this toy has more cons than pros. It is large and too cumbersome to be used well comfortably. It looks nice and reasonable in this picture doesn’t it?
Okay, so this vibe was a bit intimidating in size and instruction. I am a simple person. I just want a vibe to get me off. The thought of someone on the other side of the internet controlling my vibrator was a bit intriguing but it turns out to be much too complicated. Case and point the required hardware:
- Nintendo WiiTM remote control (Note: Nintendo Wii Gaming Console is NOT required)
- PC with Windows 7® operating system and a Bluetooth® adapter (Note: Windows XP® and Vista® operating systems are NOT SUPPORTED)
- 1GHz or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
- 1 GB RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
- High Speed Internet Connection
- Active Skype® account
Once I got over the list I agreed to review this product. It came nicely packaged and included a sample of lube, the vibe itself, the wii remote holder extension and batteries for the vibe itself. The vibe takes two AAA batteries, the wii remote takes 2 AA batteries. Assuming you already have the wii controller, of course…
Underneath the foam cut out was a “use and pleasure guide” dvd with better instructions on how to use this vibe. It seems pretty simple but I never ended up using this vibe over the internet. The directions give more than enough to get you started. I imagine this could work if you will be seperated from your partner or just wanted someone else to have control. This vibe can be used a few different ways: the vibe by itself with no extension, the vibe with the extension giving you control or the vibe with the extension giving someone else control via the internet. The vibe has a few different “caps” that provide the base. Out of the box the vibe has the standard cap on it which has a turn style control on it.
The wii remote slides into the handle and some of the buttons are available through the windows. The remote can then be used to control the handle, or you can link up with Skype and the Mojowijo software and let someone else control this vibe for you. Mojowijo is planning to have chat room available where you can meet other players who have the software. The concept is great. The vibe will then be motion actiavted and someone can control the vibrations, once you connect to them, with just the flick of a wrist. The remotes will use the same technology that made wii so revolutionary.
Unfortunately, the vibrations are a bit diffuse. This would be great for my g-spot if the shaft was more solid. It does not provide enough pressure for me though.
It is much better with just the vibe sans the extension arm. Once I got the arm on it, it is too long to maneuver without cramping or being in an awkward angle. The shaft is flexible and feels hollow. It is kinda flimsy when pressure is applied. The shaft does have small raised bump which is nice for added stimulation when used externally on the clitoris. The vibration level is not strong enough for clitoral stimulation for me.
The male counterpart to this vibe is not useful at all. Miguel described it as “less than useless”. I hate to be so harsh about this but if you look at it with the handle you can see that this is no pleasure object, it is a big tease. Even without the handle, the shaft is too long to be held comfortably. Maybe if I ever need to try to stimulate Miguel with difuse buzzy vibratons on an open ring from like 6 feet away this vibe will come in handy. In the meantime, Miguel couldn’t give this any sort of good review. He hated it and said it didn’t even feel good. The textured ring is very flimsy and does not provide firm contact when used.
The Mojowijo is not waterproof, with all of the extra bit of electrical smartness that is to be expected I guess. The silicone is very smooth and not tacky at all.
This vibe had such a great concept, but it did not deliver where it really mattered. If they make one with more power anytime soon, I might be interested. For now I will only say this vibe will work if you like teaser vibrations on a flimsy shaft. As for the male version, I do not recommend this vibe at all.
I was supplied this toy free of charge in exchange for an un-biased review. This review is in compliance with the FTC guidelines.
