And for the thousands of tech nerds at the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, that means the intelligent toasters and AI vacuum cleaners are having to make room for the sex toys of the future. Ahead of CES, however, Lora DiCarlo-which makes the Osé-was informed that CES administrators "were rescinding our award and subsequently that we would not be allowed to showcase Osé, or even exhibit at CES 2019", Lora Haddock, Founder and CEO of Lora DiCarlo, writes in a open letter.
In 2017 and 2018, for example, they failed to feature any female keynote speakers - something that caused significant backlash and the organisers have sought to rectify this year by ensuring four of its nine such speaking spots are filled by women.
In a post on the company's website, Ms Haddock claims the hands-free female massager was vetted by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) and a panel of proficient judges, who scored the device well enough for it to be among the products acknowledged in the awards.
The market for sex products such as vibrators and lubricant is projected to grow to $37.2 billion globally by the year 2022, according to British sex toy retailer MysteryVibe.
A month after being told their product had been given an award, though, the folks at Lora DiCarlo received saddening news. She points out that CES has given awards to makers of a number of sex-focused tech products in the past, including B.sensory and OhMiBod in 2016.
