Lelo Siri 2

Voice-activated vibrator promises to improve your singing voice

Sunday, January 18th, 2015

A Swedish vibrator company LELO has developed a sound-responsive toy that can be used for both pleasure and vocal training. Not only does the gadget react to ambient noise – be it your lover’s voice or your favourite pop song – but it can also be used to “tone” the voice box, claims LELO.

Siri 2 (we wonder if Apple has anything to say about that) is a small but powerful palm-held massager which has a small microphone that responds to the volume of sound around it and vibrates accordingly. The device also has eight pre-set vibration patterns inspired by different musical genres: reggae, jazz, techno, classical and others.

LELO was inspired to create the musical vibrator after the company noticed that the first version – Siri 1 – was being used by singers to exercise the vocal chords. Just watch this video featuring Professor David Ley show how a vibrator can be used to change and improve the voice. David Ley demonstrates how to place a small, hand-held vibrator on various parts of the head and neck to improve vocal power, tone and range.

To jump on that bandwagon, LELO is also marketing Siri 2 as a tool for improving your singing. “By applying the tapered tip in different places on your larynx and along your vocal cords, Siri 2 can help voice performers of all types warm up and engage their voices, as well as tone the necessary mechanics of the voice box and help understand how their voice works and changes,” says the company.

“Undoubtedly, it can help you hit those high notes in the bedroom and out.” Some big claims for a small vibrating device.
