I received it a few months ago and it has become my main device.
This is a single-axis device that combines the best features of other devices.
The connection occurs via Wi-Fi, which allows you to accurately transmit both slow and fast movements. And the powerful motor allows you to use heavy sleeves, for example from Fleshlight, the standard sleeve also feels very good
i bet its junk i had the autoblow ai before this one came out and had so many issues had multiple replacements one of which almost caught on fire while i was in it and all the sleeves the orifices would just fall off or the sleeves would develop a hole mid shaft company lost my trust in a good product
I had the Autoblow AI as well. It was the only of these devices which I actually threw out. Huge disappointment. The original wasn’t compatible with scripts which may have been the main issue as their ‘AI’ or whatever controlled it was terrible. If it can move fleshlight sleeves at similar speeds as The Handy that would be great, but I’m kind of with you- the last device from them burned me a bit too hard.
The connection via WiFi, is this connection proprietary, always going via their server?
E.g. it does not work directly with a local video/control application directly connected to device
(with no internet required.)
Because I am sort of not into the idea of companies trying to carve up the community into smaller closed ecosystems.
The problem with its old design is that most of its power is just wasted (probably a big reason why heat was such an issue).
Instead of having good up/down movements, it stretched the sleeve, which means that only the tip of the cock gets decent motion, and the rest barely anything at all. Adding to that, the stretching of material generates heat at a place it cant vent it away. This new design seems to resolve that by using a container that it moves entirely.
Heat was also a problem as the container is closed and didnt have any decent method of venting heat. It had 1 hole which means airflow in the device was garbage. Looking at the images though… I dont see any improvements here.
The sleeve removal and placing also was anoying. And i suspect that the case again helps here by having an easier to use connection.
And then the AI part… Its just a standard set of patterns randomized. With a few configs to limit the used patterns. Now with proper syncing, while it isnt AI (tbf, without any camera AI wont work anyway as it lacks getting feedback), it at least is an improvement in capabilities.
And another question here is: how closed source is the scripting part here? Unless its fully open, its an absolute no go as once the scripts are offline, the device lost a major feature.
It was very underwhelming in the first version. And while i do see improvements, the first version made me too aware of their own lack of proper testing, and just showed most money went to marketing (which sadly worked at that time).
Even now i dont think the device will beat the handy in performance, but at least i see the main problems resolved. Even if it got close to the handy, their reputation wont make me go for it.
