Today we’d like to introduce you to Glenise Kinard-Moore.
Glenise Kinard-Moore is a wife, a daughter, sister (youngest of three), tech nerd, idealist, and visionary. An information security professional during the day and an ambitious tech creative at night. She likes to say that her superpower is breaking apart many things to create new things. Glenise holds an undergraduate degree from Georgia State University, where she played 4-years of division 1 women’s basketball. She has worked within the information security world for the last six plus years and holds several information security and audit industry certifications.
“The VDOM is by far the most challenging idea that I have ever worked to bring to life, but I felt like it had to be done for so many reasons”, says the creator. “There are so many people who experience certain physical sexual restrictions and ultimately there are only a very small handful of solutions that even try to address such issues”, stated the creator. Glenise wanted to use her tech skills and knowledge to challenge herself to find a solution to the annoying world of limited and ineffective products. “I knew it needed to be able to be worn comfortably all day, it needed to be hands-free as much as naturally possible and it needed to be able to go from non-erect to erect via a simple process” says the creator. And The VDOM was born. The VDOM is set to be available to consumers in late 2020, pre-orders are set to begin this month.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
It has been a road traveled fast yet with many ups and downs. The biggest struggle is knowing one side of the mountain while trying to navigate the other side that you have little experience in overall. I have ample experience, personally and professionally, in business, entrepreneurship, marketing and technology but I am still learning the product management side.
So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the SkiiMoo Tech story. Tell us more about the business.
SkiiMoo Tech, LLC is a research, science, technology and engineering firm born out of the Southside of Atlanta and is the parent company of our premiere product, The VDOM. Being a mashup of thinkers, creators and innovators, SkiiMoo Tech was created to disrupt the status quo and break through societal barriers by leveraging “all things tech”. Our focus is on inventing technologically advanced solutions for niche markets that are usually not on the forefront.
As mentioned, our premiere product The VDOM, is managed under our first portfolio offering, VDOM, LLC, which is an ingenious #sextech firm that focuses on human-inspired engineering through the creation of state of the art prosthetic devices that enhance the adult sexual experience. The VDOM TM is an app-connected adult wearable prosthetic genital device that has the ability to go from flaccid to erect at the push of a button or via a swipe on your smartphone or smartwatch.
Who are your products designed for?
Being a lesbian myself, The VDOM was designed with the LGBTQIA community at the forefront. However, as we have gone through the creation process and through extensive research, we have determined that The VDOM will be a life changing solution for several different demographics, including men who suffer from erectile dysfunction.
When designing the look and feel of your product, what research went into it?
This idea originated years before action was put into place to create The VDOM. I researched the need for this product and the current and future market for at least a year before moving forward. Research consisted of traditional self-paced research, paid research from major marketing and research platforms, as well as self-conducted surveys, paid surveys and focus groups.
What sex tech trends have you noticed in recent years – and what do you think drove those trends?
The sex tech trends I have paid the most attention to is the evolution of the vibrator. As more women-founded entities join the sex tech industry, the focus on female clitoral stimulation has skyrocketed and it has been such a beautiful evolution for women. I am trying to join the trend but in a different way. I want to make sure that while we are focusing on stimulating the clitoris, we don’t forget about the G-spot. The VDOM has been built not only with a comfortable sexual penetration experience in mind but also with tremendous emphasis on the G-spot via our proprietary constructed shaft and head of our device.
You plan to release the product in three different skin tones, what tones are they and will there be more colors to follow?
The initial skin tones include light, medium and dark tones, but future of the versions of The VDOM will include more customizable flesh tone colors chosen by the consumer.
Do you have plans for other future products?
The future of The VDOM includes leveraging technology beyond our wildest dreams. From the inclusion of stimulation for the primary user to utilizing sensors to react to your natural body arousal, we plan to explore and implement all aspects of technology to enhance the future of sex. We are so excited!
Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
I wouldn’t call it luck but more of a blessing to be able to take an idea based on a necessity and turn it into a solution for so many. As I mentioned previously, I had ample experience in technology and marketing but needed to learn the process of product management and how to bring a concept to life. I have been blessed enough to navigate uncharted territory for myself with a few hiccups.
