We’ve featured long distance tech before, such as the kissable phone, and long distance pillow, and now we have one more to add to the list – a gadget for long distance kissing. The folks over at Kajimoto Laboratory at the University of Electro-Communications in Japan have created some sort of device that isn’t close to the real thing, but it’s getting there.
The kiss transmission device is basically a box with a hardware receptacle that users place into their mouth to kiss. How they kiss the receptacle is then recorded and transmitted digitally into another device that reads the recording and plays it back on its own receptacle, essentially transmitting a kiss through long distance.
Right now it’s only a prototype and resembles nothing more than a box with a straw, but the developers plan to recreate the whole kissing experience in the future – including taste, manner of breathing, and moistness of the tongue. They even plan to implement a recording feature that celebrities can use to record how they kiss as a file so that it can be loaded into the device – for fans to have a virtual make out session with their favorite stars. Freaky? Or every fanboy’s dream come true? Watch a video demonstration:
