LOS ANGELES — PicoBong has announced that the Indiegogo funding campaign for its unique Remoji remote control app that controls four new sex toys, has raised five times its crowdfunding goal, with the beta version of the app now in development.

According to the company, its first foray into crowdfunding demonstrated customer demand while providing valuable feedback for refining the final product.  

As part of the project, PicoBong revealed four new rechargeable sex toys: the Diver Egg Vibe, Surfer Plug Vibe, Lifeguard Ring Vibe, and the Blowhole M-Cup, all of which can be remotely controlled by the new Remoji app across a Bluetooth connection.

To celebrate the success of the Indiegogo campaign, LELO partners will be offered exclusive discounts for the duration of the fundraiser, which will end on April 22. Retailers interested in stocking Remoji can visit the LELO Online Retailer System, or contact directly. 

Conceived as more than a simple remote, the Remoji app uses an eponymous animated figure that responds to taps and swipes to control the speed of vibrations, all while dancing to different music styles that inspire the vibrations of the toys.

“We want to revolutionize sex lives by making phones part of foreplay and not a distraction from it,” PicoBong Chief Marketing Officer Steve Thomson says. “Remoji certainly brings a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘vertical expression of horizontal desire.’”

“Just imagine using this app, paired up with a sex toy, out in public at a restaurant or club,” Thomson adds. “You can be playing with the app and no one will realize you’re actually controlling a sex toy; they will all think you’re just playing a game.”

Having surpassed its initial funding goal, PicoBong is developing the final version of the app to capitalize on this customer enthusiasm with an official launch slated for May.
