I don’t know how to even start with this one, so I’ll give it to you straight — a group of researchers at the Kajimoto Laboratory at the University of Electro-Communications in Tokyo have developed a “Kiss Transmission Device.” Yes boys and girls, its exactly what it sounds like: a new way to make out over the Internet.
Here’s how it works: A plastic tube projects out of a device that is connected to a motor, which is then connected to the computer. The person in turn moves the tube with his tongue, which moves the straw on the other end, and vice versa. The researchers claim that this should accurately portray the feeling of a french kiss.
Since it’s a bit tough to describe, lets let the inventors do it themselves:
So basically now those long-distance relationships are no longer that far away. The inventor wants to go even as far as to recreate the breathing, moistness, and taste for future models.
Bizarre, huh? Maybe there might be a more important application for this technology, but a “kissing machine” isn’t it.
