Waterproof Unity

Studio: Evolved » Review by Don Houston » Review Date: 11/17/08

XCritic's Advice: Recommended

Evolved Novelties is helmed by none other than Greg Alves, the man known for putting Metro on the map, starting up Zero Tolerance, and more recently fighting asshat pirates successfully, winning a multimillion dollar judgement.  So, why does Greg think he can carve out a niche in an ultra competitive market dominated by the likes of Doc Johnson, Adam & Eve, TopCo, and a few others?  First, he teamed up with equally well known Gregg Alan, a guy you may know as the head honcho at Diabolic  (another favorite movie production company of mine) and the two took a different approach.  Rather than go cheap with their toys, they decided to take it slow and easy, using high end materials and quality testing practices, resulting in toys like the Waterproof Unity in their Fusion line of products. Having extensively tested the company's line a number of times of late, I know that they tend to be made really well (in China no less) with each of my testing partners clamoring to get them as they come in (pun intended).

Measuring in at 10" tall, Nadine was first to ask me if we had reviewed the novelty previously, the device apparently a combination of the bumpy ridges of the Waterproof Duality and the anal probing bottom half of the Waterproof Gemini, but in the color black .  The dual motor setup was the same, allowing for the constant setting on one part of it while the other part had the various mixed settings she found so appealing. The next generation toy added a second vibrator with a separate motor to generate additional vibrations on the other end, effectively making it a double headed vibrator.  The settings were identical to both toys it was patterned after as described below, but the outer shell had been modified to provide a slightly different experience. What set it apart right away was the cool packaging, a plain white sleeve surrounding a nice metal case with foam inside, hinges holding the top onto the body.  To date, everyone I have shown this company's toys to, love the assorted cases they come in, a few people actually asking me for the cases even when the toys were not quite to their liking.

The Waterproof Unity takes four AAA batteries (yes, four of them) and unlike the True Love series, this device is less about raw power than a focused set of pulses that work really well for some people.  This one was made of a harder form of plastic that some people don't like as much as the jelly style but the ridged top was suited for one opening on her while the other seemed more suited to her ass (a graduated series of small ridges, giving her a toy she could use in both holes without stopping during a heated session to clean it off (going pussy to ass and back is a bad idea given the likelihood of infections).

After she left, I tested it to check the waterproof nature of the device and it passed with flying colors, the controls on the middle of the toy being a couple of simple push buttons that were easy to control; one of them controlling overall vibration from one motor while the other controlled the pulsations with a few weird patterns that might take some getting used to.  The "O" ring kept water from destroying the electronics and it was quite easy to clean, making it Recommended given how it was made of a material she wasn't as fond of and the controls did not give as much confidence that they would remain contamination free (to be fair, no problems have been found as of yet but the testing is only a few days old now thanks to Hurricane Ike tearing up my region and killing power). 


If the Waterproof Unity is any indication of things to come, I suspect both gentlemen will be making more money from toys than their award winning movies (though I hope they continue to provide both).  For the record, this was part of the "Fusion Edition"  line and it was made in China for the socially conscious but you'll want to stock up on extra batteries while experimenting since it takes twice as many!  As far as the method of combining parts of one toy with another, this opens up a whole new concept of mix & match pleasure, a quick experiment proving that each of the toys in the series were interchangable (though this is an undocumented feature and should be tried at your own risk; the battery portion of each accepting the lower half of the others).  The rest of the tech specs were found in our forums as follows:

Fusion Edition
Fusion, a precision-crafted dual-headed massager, offers a breathtaking blend of form and functionality. With its artisan inspired design and 16 finely-tuned functions of vibration and pulsation, you will achieve an unparalleled synthesis of harmony and bliss. Whether it's used alone or with a partner, Fusion will meld both, body and soul.

• 2 independent vibrating heads
•easy push button silicone controls
•16 combinations of speed and vibration
•maximum intensity with minimum noise
•ultra-powerful motor soothes and seduces
•sensually covered in a satin smooth coating

Lastly, it mentions it is RoHS compliant which essentially means the device is free of many specific health hazard chemicals, this from the RoHS website in the EU:
The definition and aim of the RoHS directive is quite simple. The RoHS directive aims to restrict certain dangerous substances commonly used in electronic and electronic equipment. Any RoHS compliant component is tested for the presence of Lead (Pb), Cadmium (Cd), Mercury (Hg), Hexavalent chromium (Hex-Cr), Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), and Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE). For Cadmium and Hexavalent chromium, there must be less than 0.01% of the substance by weight at raw homogeneous materials level. For Lead, PBB, and PBDE, there must be no more than 0.1% of the material, when calculated by weight at raw homogeneous materials. Any RoHS compliant component must have 100 ppm or less of mercury and the mercury must not have been intentionally added to the component. In the EU, some military and medical equipment are exempt from RoHS compliance.
