NSFW: Hands On with the SaSi Tongue Simulator Vibrator

We saw MagicJack’s femtocell design live in their suite and came away dazzled and slightly bemused. The device itself is far from finished – it’s basically just a PCB right now – but the concept is compelling. For about the price of the MagicJack ($40 or whatever) you stream your cellphone calls through their device, bypassing the cell carriers completely. Will it work? Sure. It’s essentially like a cell booster in a package about as big as a deck of cards.

As far as I can tell carriers have little to say regarding the technology. You obviously don’t get data streaming over these devices but you do get voice. Watch the video for a bit more detail.
