Not Exactly Da Vinci -- The Moaning Lisa Mannequin
Forget the iphone, the latest in gadget interface is the Moaning Lisa, a female foreplay mannequin that uses sensors to respond to stimulation with an entire library of sounds that she can be programmed to make, including a library of over 200 different moans!
Developed by multimedia artists Matt Ganucheau, Kyle Machulis, and Kelly Moore, this vixen version of la joconde is no Tickle-Me Elmo. Routed with a controller board programmed with advanced multitouch software (conveniently located in her pneumatic chest), Lisa is sensitive to the speed, duration, and sequence of touch input, meaning that a certain degree of arousal must be attained before she'll respond. So basically, it's technologically impossible for her to fake it!
