This New Vibrator Tech Gives You A Buzz When Your Food Arrives & It Sums Up The Pandemic

No, this is not a joke! And yes it's compatible with all Bluetooth-enabled vibrators in Quebec. CamSoda, an adult entertainment webcam platform based in New York, calls the technology "Grubuzz."

"The vibration frequency starts slowly when someone’s order is received by the restaurant and progressively increases when the driver leaves the restaurant with the order, drives closer to their residence and arrives at their door," said Brett Hogan, a CamSoda spokesperson. 

So how does it work? Users get a custom email address from CamSoda, which they use as their sign-up email for Uber Eats, DoorDash or the food delivery platform of their choice. Email updates are then translated into vibrations via Bluetooth. 

Grubuzz uses clitoral vibration technology, so it's currently only available for people with female genitalia — however, Hogan said a male version will debut in the coming months.

Here's Why Montreal Police Still Don't Have Body Cams

Politicians seem to agree on body cams for police. Is it finally going to happen?

In a meeting on December 9, 2020, the Montreal City Council voted down an amendment that would have funded body cameras for Montreal police officers. The defeat of the proposal — by a vote of 34 to 27 — was just the latest turn of events in the years-long, zigzagging effort to make the cameras part of the SPVM uniform.

Now, in the wake of the wrongful arrest of Mamadi Camara, supporters of the measure have once again renewed calls for additional police accountability. Here's a complete history of the political evolution of the proposal, and where it could go from here.
