The Love Palz gadgetry works with multiple pressure and speed sensors (in both the Hera and Zeus), so that you can actually feel what your lover is doing to you in real time, even if there happen to be miles and oceans between the two of you.

This research has been used to elucidate gender cues, clarifying which behaviors and aesthetics elicit a stronger gender-induced response.
