This last year has certainly been a bit of a roller coaster of ups and downs as far as the Bionic Project goes and has often felt like one step forward, two steps back. There’s definitely still plenty of challenges to overcome but we’re steadily moving in the right direction even if it’s been slower than I would have liked.
But to quote Jim Rohn “Big achievements come one small step at a time.”
I’m happy to say I can finally show you a rough Bionic Basic prototype video, which gives a pretty good initial overview of the erection capabilities, stand to pee functionality, stimulation option and ejaculation/lubrication reservoir. Please do keep in mind though that it is functionally and aesthetically still a prototype and the final product will be far more refined. In any case, I’m feeling confident that we will be able to go into production this coming year.
However as far the Bionic Deluxe goes, we just keep hitting walls as far as power and size constraints go. We’ve established solid and tested proof of concept for all the various systems but really need to get everything more compact with less power consumption and that is proving to be really quite horrendously tricky. Hence for the sake of sanity, we’ll be focusing on getting the Bionic Basic to production and then once that’s complete, come back to the Bionic Deluxe.
I honestly just can’t wait for this any longer <3 I really hope 2020 is the year I can buy my own bionic. I haven't been able to donate because things have been crazy but I wish I had.
nice but the girth is too skinny. please make different girth and length options. what is the price for this?
You absolutely astound me, Alex – thank you so much for all the work and creativity you put into this, it means more than I can say. I’m looking forward to doing a monthly donation thing when I get a job, this is such an exciting update!
Impressive! Will guys post-meta (or born with micropenis) be able to wear it? Not the shaft itself, obviously, but will it fit with testicular implants or will there be an option to store the reservoirs somewhere else? Perhaps directly in the shaft would be an option? I imagine the liquid from the low pressure chamber could be moved by basically a handy-j motion, the valve could be in almost the same place as it is right now. Pressing it by accident during peeing shouldn’t be a problem, because the residue will be at the tip, so only the bottom half needs to be squeezed (and if it does get errect it can be simply redirected back in the reservoirs). 4″ flaccid sounds reasonable and more common than 5″. If the errect lenght can grow from 4 to 6″ that’s going to be plenty average too, though I’m sure most guys would want 7″, haha. Anyway, great job both you and the university professors and students involved! Keep up the good work!
It should be fine for guys who have had meta, but if you’ve also had testicular implants, the whole thing could get a little bulky, but hence also the option to remove the stp cup. But the reservoirs have to be in the testicles seeing there’s nowhere else for the fluid to go.
My thoughts exactly as I’ll be post-op Meta this spring but this concept is amazing! Super impressed with the Bionic regardless!
this is lovely and i’m so excited watching it!
Great to see a prototype and see that it is progressing.
I’m really glad to see that it is designed to be suitable to pack upwards.
I’m wondering about the STP function. I use that a lot, at urinals both at work and public toilets.
The urethra pipe looks very narrow and the cup is hard. Is that reflecting the expected product?
I would expect it would be hard to pee at a busy train station during peak hour rush securely without accidents. It doesn’t seem that it would manage a normal stream.
A hard cup makes me expect a rather uncomfortable day of sitting on that at the office.
Also needing to squeeze the tip to allow for the flow when peeing in addition to holding the device in place could prove to be a challenging balancing act.
I hope these are considerations in the final design.
With the STP function. it’s been tested and works pretty consistently and manages a normal stream. The final cup obviously won’t be hard plastic but a pliable silicone and will also have a longer insert “nose”. And with the tip, it would be very easy to just cut a piece off a plastic straw and insert it into the tip like a grommet if you want to keep the tip permanently open so you don’t need to squeeze it.
Good to know about the cup.
I’m not convinced by the STP handling a normal stream. If it is the width of a straw, as you suggest to keep the end open, then it isn’t wide enough to support a normal stream by some measure. Even less anything that exceeds that, like which a full bladder.
I’m quite successful at using STPs, I have used several, and I use them all the time, at home and work, and I have very good control of my stream, I can stop midstream at any point but I can’t reduce it down to the trickle of the width of a straw.
If someone else has managed that, good for them, lucky chap to have such a soft stream.
As someone else pointed out the girth is small, so you have space by widening it.
It is of no use to me without a secure STP function.
I know from looking at your blogs and videos that you don’t like a bulge but many of us don’t mind a bulge, in fact we prefer a bulge like most guys do.
So to clarify, the actual urethra is not as small as the hole at the back makes it look. This hole is smaller, so that when the cup is inserted it extends and grabs a hold of the “nose” tightly. The actual urethra is about 7mm x 9mm (so slightly oval) which is large enough for 90% + people. The current EZP stp, has an opening at the tip of 5mm x 9mm and that’s proven to be big enough for 90% +.
Please make uncut version:-: I don’t want a mutilated peepee
Tout d’abord bonjour a tout ceux qui lise mon commentaire,
je suis désolé mais a mon avis franchement les balles sont vraiment très épaisse et dure, se ne sera pas évident de porter un telle objet tous les jour sa dois être vraiment trop lourd et gênant dans le slip pour un homme petit et mince, c’ai vraiment pas assez souple comparer a la prothèse t2 Phase4 prothèses beaucoup plus molles et malléables qui elle rétrécissait vraiment bien et les balles très souple,
Le stp qui dois prendre aussi de la place , je reste vraiment perplexe en voyant le prototype, je doute , désoler et le prix pour sa dépasse largement se que sa vaut et je dis que sa dois être vraiment lourd , imposant dur et trop chère. Je ne peux pas voire sa comme étant une prolongation de mon corps si sa reste comme sa.
This is Awesome! :D
I think this is looking quite incredible! Good on you Alex for having the patience trouble shooting this huge project! Not to mention patience to deal with the whiny complaining comments.. Can’t believe my eyes sometimes!
Anyway I think this is one hot looking package with impressive capabilities!
I have one question and one concern. So the question is whether the hole where the vibe is inserted can have ridges inside and/or whether it can accommodate the wearer’s growth for more direct/movement derived stimulation (one of the things I’ve been waiting to see in prosthetics is a way of stimulation that is movement dependent so that there’s a real motivation to thrust). The concern is whether there will be a special form of attachment to the body. I find most current methods of packing somewhat lacking, especially for sex where thrusting becomes complex when the prosthetic is attached to the underwear or a harness and not the wearer. Just earlier I was practicing with the joystick (I still haven’t tried it on a partner until I perfect the technique) and even though it never moves away/out of the loop or underwear which is great, it does slide elsewhere on my body little by little as you thrust until you can’t continue thrusting and have to re-arrange it.
Yes it will be quite similar to the Hot Rod in terms of the internal cavity ie it will be ribbed, but not as deep as on the Hot Rod.
Would you be able to have the urination cup in whilst doing exercise? e.g running and what is the estimated price?
You would, as it will be a pliable silicone rather than the rigid plastic you see in the video, but that’s also why we make it detachable, that you can remove it for greater comfort when running etc and have a small cup discretely in your pocket if you wish. It’s difficult to say a price at this point as there’s still way too many variables to lock down. I think it’s safe to say though that it will be under $1000.
Will the erection actually be hard? As in, the head closer to the stomach than the ground and fully rigid? I can’t imagine getting something as soft as the erection looks in the video into my boyfriend’s arse.
Also, how are you meant to squeeze the ejaculation reservoir when the head is inside your partner? And how will it attach to the body? Will we be able to get fully naked or will we still be stuck fucking in our underpants?
1) yes it will be hard. 2) you squeeze it with your fingers, so obviously you can’t do that when inserted. 3) there’s a few articles I’ve already written on various attachment methods, so read those. There will be a variety of options including customized underwear, adhesives and ultimately looking at osteointegration.
Will there be different sizes available or will this be a one-size only product?
The first release will be one size. Perhaps in the future, there may be multiple sizes.
Will there be an uncut version?
There will either be only a cut version, or only an uncut version. Ideally, we really want it to be uncut in flaccid state, with the foreskin then withdrawing from the head in erect state to fully expose the glans (making it look cut in erect state as many uncut penises do) but we’re finding it quite challenging to make both states look completely realistic, which is why it may end up having to be cut in both flaccid and erect states as per the demo video.
Would it be possible to have a foreskin in the future versions if not this version?
It’s definitely something we are exploring.
This is a great looking first prototype, I’m amazed by the ways of how the erection function works. The stp function looks a little difficult and seems like it’d be a bit fiddly to deal with at a urinal. If there was any way to have a cup type funnel that could maybe tuck away or can be folded into the base of penis that would be a much better way for the stp side of it!
There’s no reason to ever detach the funnel if you like it permanently attached for ease of use. Keep in mind, it will be a pliable silicone, not a hard plastic like shown in the video.
If you’ve decided to focus on the bionic basic, roughly when do you think it will be ready for production?
Hard to say, but I’m hopeful it will be 2020
Do we have an update on possible release?
Unfortunately Covid has thrown quite a wrench in the works so progress has been slow. I’m hoping to have another update in the coming weeks though.
I just dont like the stp functionality of this at all I dont wanna have to attach something to it in a public bathroom
You don’t. You can leave it permanently attached. You just have the option of removing it if you wish.
hi alex, i’d like to know if the bionic will be offered in different skin tones right off the bat or will we have to wait?
It’s likely that the very first release will be in one color only, but other colors will be close behind if that’s the case.
Will this have an adhesive tab
Yes, we’re looking at a variety of attachment options including an adhesive tab.
Will there be a way to preorder this so that one wouldn’t have to wait? Also will you be having it come out in different skin tones?
Yes, most likely as we get closer I’ll announce a pre-order, but not at this stage. It’s also possible that very initially, we will be limited to one color but that won’t be for long.
Not going to lie kinda disappointed in the stp design of it. Having a hard plastic bit that can come off makes me dysphoric just thinking about it. I personally really did enjoy the design of magnets making it possible to adhere to your body or just it having the cup built into the balls in general. I wish you all luck on this however
As I keep mentioning in these comments, the cup will be a soft silicone, not a hard plastic and it’s totally up to the user if they want to remove it, or just leave it permanently attached.
How much do you think the bionic is going to weigh?
The current prototype is a little over 250 grams.
I think this is really great so far. Personally, I would probably have trouble with keeping the hard funnel between my legs all day. I wonder if you would be able to make a funnel design like the ‘Flip and Tuck’. Also, the hole for peeing seems a bit small which may cause an overflow. Otherwise, it is looking really good. The type of silicone looks great and the mechanism for the lubrication and vibe is a great idea. When this comes out, I will certainly buy one and test it out if I have the coin.
I also think it would be a good idea to look into adding hair to the top and possibly make the very top a tab kinda thing for adhesion like the gender mender products.
Yes there will be the option of a tab like gender mender.
The funnel will be a soft silicone, not hard plastic (just the prototype is 3D printed in a hard plastic) and the flow rate is actually higher than the average urine stream, so there shouldn’t be any back flow issues unless there’s a blockage or it’s not being pointed downward enough.
Would be cool if it could somehow self ejaculate. Don’t know how that would be possible, just a thought.
Im sorry… This probably sucks to say… But I am so disappointed in this prototype so far… this is all my own feelings for myself and the product.
I have been waiting for 2 years for this product since i heard of it… the sketches amazing… The idea is lifesaving. But the prototype… I was so disgusted and let down and disappointed….
My bottom dysphoria is severe… Nothing but a cis dick will ever make it ok… I suffer everyday from my bottom dysphoria…
The sketches… the designs… the hype… suddenly entered in a new option… Suffer, phalloplasty or this new Bionic.
I was excited… I needed it to work and be everything… I NEED A PROSTETIC AS CLOSE TO A CIS DICK AS POSSIBLE… This could have been better than phalloplasty… to me at least…
But the prostetic that i saw… it was raw… It looked nothing like any of the sketches… the errection divice is not far unlike what i would have with phalloplasty but still rough around the edges in design but promising
But the most damning part… The stp function… What looks like 90’s era old school ftm medicine spoon you stick in the back. I was crushed…
I dont know how many others feel like me… but i want and NEED a prosthetic that is as close to cis male as possible.
No damn medicine spoons. One full product, like the sketches and design. the full prostetic over the body, the balls anatomically correct to my cis male brothers. The penis able to stp naturally without the struggle of all other stp on the market of the awkward unatural squat or shimmy, just take a piss like any other bloke. The penis also able to go from soft to hard, ejaculate like any other cis guy…
i dont want any more packers. I want a MEDICAL PROSTETIC TO AS CLOSELY REPLICATE CIS MALE GENITIALIA AS POSSIBLE. Because… Thats what i need to just get through the day… to alleviate my struggling and suffering… everyday…
I am not happy with the prototype… i saw it the day it was released and took me this long to be able to write a response… It needs alot of work… and stay close to the design sketches… it was those that everyone got excited for… what everyone saw as a prosthetic that can alleviate so much…
good luck… maybe with future prototypes it will improve… but im not holding my breath anymore… i cant afford anymore heartbreaks of promised relief…
Alas it sounds like what you want it a miracle rather than a prosthetic and unfortunately that’s not something I can help you with. But I highly encourage you to tackle this problem yourself and see if you can come up with the magic solution you wish for. The more people working on this problem the better.
This kind of comments can be quite discouraging for people who strive to make a prosthetic penis to alleviate dysphoria as much as possible. I was very excited when I saw the first design sketch, and still am very excited after I saw the prototype. I think it’s going really well and I appreciate Alex and the staff for doing the hard work on our behalf. I think your expectation is set way too high (like hell YEAH of course I want a real penis like you do but I know no Jesus here now can make it happen) and there’s no reason for other people who’s doing the hard work to listen to your whining for not satisfying your expectation. Do something to help if you really want it then. Also, products like this will continue to improve so that it will get closer looking like a real penis. But of course it won’t miraculously happen in a short time. As long as people keep supporting, researching, and developing new product, the product will get better and better soon. Sorry i can’t help you with your bottom dysphoria but try to be more patient and supportive instead of being so pessimistic and discouraging.
I just want to thank you and your team again for doing all that you do. In all honesty, its crazy to me how little people read and listen to the words you say, being as you have clearly stated in the video and in writing that this is clearly a rough prototype, and that the cup will NOT look just like this, etc etc. So I will apologize to you for them and the many more people that can’t pay attention half the time. And thats coming from a person with ADHD.
Now to my question.
You said that the other colors are going to come a little later after production, and I know so far you and your team have been using 3 colors. As far as the darkest shade, is there any way you could also include a shade darker than that, being that cis black male penis’ are typically a few shades darker than their bodies, and if someone is dark or brownskin in any way, than their penis shouldnt be the same color as them exaclty, or lighter than them.
I myself am almost the same shade as my prosthetic joystic, and I just wish there was maybe something more realistic than just a brown penis. However, if nothing can be done that is fine – I know you and your team are very busy and probably don’t have time to be worrying about “shades” right now, but if it is possible, that would be amazing and highly appreciated!
It’s definitely something we are keeping front of mind, as with a prosthetic like this, people understandably want it to be a good match. The tricky thing is just finding a way that the very outer sleeve can be hand cast to accommodate a large color range, and we’re a bit stuck on that right now in that the tolerances of the outer skin are difficult to create outside a factory environment. Most likely what this will mean is that we start with a standard one color model and have a slightly modified version of this where the outer sleeve can be hand cast to accommodate custom color choice.
No need to be defensive. I understand you are working hard, and the comments section is here for a reason. It is my honest feedback as a potential customer of this body prosthetic for my ability to function in every day life.
The prototype is exciting, but the biggest part or my disappointment and “pessimism” was that it is very unlike the sketches.
The bionic has been marketed as the “perfect 3 in 1” pack pee play, get erect and such.
The erection function i said isnt bad, and reminds me of the erectile devices for phalloplasty
What i was not happy at all with was what looked like a medicine spoon add on. It felt like a slap in the face. That was not what was in the sketches, that was not what was told and advertised. And that is stepping away from a prosthetic molded after cis male brothers. and unfortunately towards what feels unatural just to barely be able to have a function of what we cant do like stp. (stp products are notoriously difficult to create and use but large cup designs hidden under or around the balls as part of the prostetic are getting more and more successful and more natural than again a medicine spoon. )
My point is, this is a prototype, and I acknowledge you work hard, i apologize for not acknowledging that in my first post. But my pure honest feedback is as above.
I really think for the stp function in particular you should experiment and see if it is possible to get closer to the initial design sketches. Because as It is now, with the medicine like spoon, that is not what i am looking for.
I wish you luck, i appreciate your time reading and your work. I hope you continue advancing the prosthetics closer to the initial designs. Good luck
I’m not understanding why you are referring to it as a “medicine spoon” seeing it is nothing like a modified medicine spoon stand to pee device. As I’ve mentioned, the cup will be a soft silicone, not hard plastic like the prototype. It will likely be available in a variety of sizes as the compromise is always the larger the cup the easier to use but the less comfortable and compact, so that way people can train themselves down to a smaller cup and it has level of customization you can’t get with a permanently attached cup.
super disappointed with the detachable STP feature. I know it’s silicone, but it’s also a cop out and against the OG design. I don’t want detachable parts of my dick, I just want a dick. Looks great otherwise but If I’m gonna have a part that i have to worry about coming out then I’ll just buy a STP packer somewhere else with an erection insert for $900 cheaper. This is super great what you’re doing but for that price tag I shouldn’t be able to compare it to another product on the market.
You won’t have to worry about it coming out. Keep in mind this is a prototype only and not what the final design will look like. It will have a longer nose that will feed into the urethra and it will stay attached unless you don’t want it to. The idea of the detachable cup is to give people THE OPTION of not having it, but there’s no need to detach it ever if you don’t want to.
You won’t have to worry about it coming out unexpectedly when the final version is out. Do you really want to have the cup in though when you’re using it for sex? I think it’s a fantastic idea to have a choice on whether it’s there or not. The entire prototype is fantastic and leaps and bounds farther than what other companies are offering. Alex has been working so incredibly hard on this for a long time now and it’s coming along incredibly well. I, for one, am ecstatic that something this close to a cis penis will be available in the near future. Even if it’s not the “real thing” it’s probably as close as we’ll ever get without surgery. He’s stated so many times in the comments that the stp part is still being worked on. The plastic used in the video isn’t the finished model. The hole for the stp is not the actual size of the urethra. Please everyone just admire what has been accomplished here and ask legitimate questions instead of complaining about something he has already commented on multiple times. Why come here solely to belittle this wonderful project? You people amaze me.
is there an estimate of when the bionic will be ready for preorder?
Still hoping for 2020 :)
This is i n c r e d i b l e. I am blown away by what you guys have made. I didn’t know anything like this was possible, and I can’t wait to see what the finished product looks like. I hope to one day own this prosthetic.
Wow. This looks amazing! How much do you think this will cost? Im really looking forward to getting this. ????
It’s still quite difficult to say at the moment as there’s still a lot of unknowns in terms of production, but I think it’s safe to say under $1000 :)
You and your team keep going! Outstanding what you’ve archieved so far, I am truly impressed! I can only imagine all the future products coming up next year, it’s getting better and better. Thank you so much for investing your time and hard work in this project/prosthetic.
I just want to say that I think you are doing a great job and I think it was a good choice making the cup detachable. Mainly because I was concerned about the issue of the bio genitals being in a closed off environment. I also think it is a good idea that you decided to go for a ribbed cavity for stimulation.
I’m a bit concerned about the size of the hole for urination and that there is a “bottleneck” very early on, as I’m concerned this will cause overflow in the cup due to a low throughput initially. Good to hear that it is internally a bit wider though and that it should have a larger hole than the EZP. I see that you have a percentage saying that the EZP works for 90%, but I wonder if that is the case. It does not work for me as it overflows. I just never wrote back that it didn’t work as I was too busy with life to be too concerned with a product I bought didn’t work that well for me.
Anyways, keep up the good work and it is great to see a prosthetic with some balls! I really hope there in the future will be an intact/uncut version as that to me is more important than having it look erect. TBH I would be satisfied if you just had a product that was similar to NYTC Pierre and Jack, but in your fantastic colors an great shapes (so balls, uncut and a rippled cavity). The ability with the reservoir is also really cool. It could be cool with STP if I go camping sometime, but I don’t see it as a must.
Thanks for working on this :)
Thanks for your feedback and it’s great to see you’ve had a thorough read of all the info. We will be testing the flow rate quite extensively so unless one has a very unusually high flow rate, this should not be an issue, though correct placement and positioning will be critical to avoid kinks in the urethra.
Truly excited for this product. This really ups the ante on what to look for in a packer. Can’t wait to see the final product.
It’s looking good! Greatly appreciate all of the efforts and time that is going into this. Do you have an expected release date?
We were hoping for end of 2020, but the Corona thing has thrown a bit of a wrench in the works so it may be delayed to 2021.
So since it will be delayed until 2021
is it possible that we will get more updates? also curious if the people who are commenting or subscribing via email will have the first chance to pre order/ test??
Yes, we will continue to give updates, but right now, with Corona, there hasn’t been any significant updates. And yes, we will keep everyone informed of progress, pre-order opportunities etc via the newsletter.
Super impressive, can’t wait to see how it develops.
The only complaint i’ve seen with your products such as the joystick, is that after about a year the paint wears off, and spending 300 dollars every year to replace isn’t ideal. So if you could make the veins more prominent or painted differently that would be so appreciated. Thank you for what you do.
I have been following this project ever since it was just a random comment on some random forums. Before you even made the first blog posts, and I have to say it continues to amaze and excite! I absolutely LOVE your idea of making the STP cup detachable for the option of purchasing different cup sizes, especially after my disappointment of wasting SO MUCH of my money on EVERY STP available here and none of them EVER working for me. I hope you design some of the cups for these to not only be wider than all of the other STPs, but also loooonger to reach much farther back. I would hate to spend my money on something as expensive as this Bionic will be, and have it still fail me as an STP. Still, I’m looking forward to saving up for it, though. Great work!
I am so thankful that you make it possible! I suffer every day and can’t wait to order it. Thank you very much!!!
I have another question. My biggest wish is to get an orgasm by rubbing the penis. I want to be able to satisfy myself like a cis man by pushing the skin back and forth. Is it possible with him? I haven’t understood that yet, my English language skills are not good enough to understand everything in the video.
Will I feel the touch on my penis? That’s how it is with Hot Rod right?
What will distinguish the deluxe version from the basic version?
Will it appear in early 2021? And the deluxe version? How much will it cost?
I am infinitely grateful to you. You give me hope for a better life. Thank you very much!
You can find answers to most of these questions such as the difference between the basic and deluxe in the blog posts and main page http://transthetics.com/bionic-penis/ so won’t keep repeating it here, but yes, with the Hot Rod, you get some tactile sensation feedback which is explained in this video here https://youtu.be/v9Clk9-AVLw
I’m really excited about this concept! Due to nerve-related complications after top surgery, it’s pretty unlikely I’ll get any form of lower surgery, so it makes me really happy that there are other options being made available
It’s looking amazing!
I’ve been looking for a play prosthetic that is kind of like a double-ended dildo. Looking at the design of this, maybe it would be possible to have an attatchment that could be worn internally so that no harness is necessary for sex (maybe in combination with adhesive) and so that I could get internal stimulation as well?
That probably wouldn’t work for the Bionic due to positioning and weight, but I am looking at creating an adaptor for the Hot Rod which would allow for what you’re describing :)
The prosthetic you’re creating is stunning, Alex. I’m impressed by the technology going into its design. Thank you for your ingenuity and perseverance with this project. One of my favorite concepts mentioned in the design is the potential for magnets (possibly body piercings or surgically inserted) that align with magnets on the prosthesis. That alone is thrilling to me. No readjusting, no adhesives. Just attach and go. That sense of security and convenience would be such a treasure.
I was wondering if any existing penile implants could be helpful with some of the issues with getting it hard and not using much energy. The basic is similar to the Titan penile implant. I’ve been looking at 2 piece implants and I think it has potential to work. Let me know if you’ve tested it already
Yes, the principles are quite similar except that a lot of these implants have the reservoir surgically implanted in the body instead of the scrotum and only the pump is in the scrotum, so we are using a similar principle :)
Hey! Any updates?
Curious. If I was to get meta (clitoral release only) could I still use this product?
Theoretically yes, but it’s difficult to say for sure. It’s possible that you could have trouble with the release wanting to block the flow of the cup.
I’m wondering if there is any way you could paint the prosthetic, and then put a clear and very thin layer of silicone over it so that way the paint wont ever rub off. Or something to where people won’t have to constantly buy a new one every few months. Just hope its not expensive though. Also, thanks again for what you guys do!
The tricky thing with silicone is it actually doesn’t work to create an additional layer on the outside as it would delaminate. You would have to create the outer layer first and then work inwards which comes with a whole range of production challenges but we’re working on it :)
Really hope it’s not too expensive when it comes out with all the buisness they’re getting, I keep checking back but theres no prices or release date which is a bit disheartening..
This looks amazing, and a real leap forward. Thank you for your hard work in striving for this! It’ll take me a long time to save up for, but I feel it’ll be a real game-changer for me.
You should not sell the prototypes as full price, use guinea pigs, work out the bumps that way. Insread of charging full price for something, then after sending it. You the go, ‘Oh, yeah. That product we sent you is a modification of the product I had sent you previously, plus it hasn’t actually been tested.’
You’ll most likely delete this, but if not I would like to find like minded people, to come up with a non prothetic way using a persons stem cells/3D printer. I meqn they’re doing it with other organs why not a phallus.
Yes we will be doing extensive prototype testing before selling them.
Commenting here for a second time to say that I re-read all of the Bionic updates and comments every month or so and that my excitement hasn’t dimmed since I first found out about this company. I feel like I’m constantly brimming with zeal and optimism because of all the work you and your team do, Alex, I can’t think of a single other thing that’s ever made me feel so hopeful.
I know developments keep getting delayed and honestly it kinda blows my mind the way some of these comments get so entitled, but I could wait another three years just running on the blueprints and prototypes you’ve already shared.
So thank you for everything, this is more than I ever thought possible, I wish trans people across history had someone like you to do what you’re doing for us.
Thanks so much for the encouraging words! That means a lot :)
Looks pretty good for a prototype. I do hope you will figure out how to make them uncut. I’m sure you recognize the importance of that since we are going for as close to a replacement as possible. I would honestly rather have a slightly less realistic looking uncut prosthetic than a perfect cut one. As for color solutions perhaps it might be worth exploring dyes or coatings that work without damaging the material than manufacturing them in different shades?
The prototype is a beauty. I’d pay double what your suggesting for that very prototype, raw as you think it is. I bet you are getting sick of hearing this with Covid and all but any eta on this little (AND big) miracle?
Still no ETA but not giving up :)
Have you considered using Nitinol to create the erection? Look it up on Google, there are articles on “heat activated penile implant” might restore sexual function in men with ed.
Yes, we’ve explored this and it does look promising for a future electronic version :)
Will there possibly be different sizes for people who prefer to pack smaller / have a smaller member?
