The Japanese love technology so much that now even sex toys are on the cutting edge, according to a report from News.com.au.

The “gPod”, a phallic-shaped vibrator, is designed to respond automatically to sounds picked up by an accompanying handset, which can plug into anything from a telephone to a music player to a television.

The gPod, referred to as an "iVibrator," takes its name and description from Apple's wildly popular iPod. Apple, however, has no affiliation with the product.

An apple spokesman declined to comment on the new device.

The gPod, which retails for $243, was one of a number of toys that went on public view this week at Japan's first-ever sex toy expo in suburban Tokyo.

“You can use it in many ways, for example hooking it up to your mobile phone,” said Ichiro Kameda, the machine's inventor. “One of the ideas is that you can use it here in Tokyo when your boyfriend in New York is talking to you on the phone.”

Kameda said he had spent four years trying to design a product when he hit upon the concept.
