VIBES

There’s a Kickstarter for everything, including Crave’s “Vesper” vibrator which doubles discreetly as a necklace:

The bullet-shaped piece comes in stainless steel plated with silver ($69), rose gold ($79), or 14k gold ($149). The USB-rechargeable battery lasts 40 minutes to 1.5 hours, depending on frequency of use. It has four speeds — low, medium, high, and pulsing — all of which are super quiet. And whether you’re gifting the Vesper to yourself or a loved one, it can be engraved with a personal message.

Crave was founded by Michael Topolovac, a Stanford-educated product designer, and Ti Chang, an industrial designer with a master’s degree from the Royal College of Art in London whom Topolovac has talked up as “a female Jony Ivy,” referring to Apple’s respected head of design. After raising $100,000 from over 900 donors on the crowd-funding platform CKIE to launch its first product, the San Francisco-based company closed a $2.4 million Series A investment from over 60 angel investors in 2013.

Other models include up to 16GB of flash drive storage, making them practical and …um… practical.
