Kiss me quick

Check out this weird little contraption called the Kissenger which lets users send kisses wirelessly to one another. The Kissenger consists of a pair of pressure-sensitive soft plastic lips which protrude through a smooth plastic casing the size of a large Easter egg.

Kissenger’s lips contain pressure sensors and actuators which when you kiss them, the shape changes, the result is then transmitted in real time over the net to a receiving Kissenger. The other Kissenger then uses its actuators to reproduce the mirror image of the pressure patterns you created. Giving your other half a great big kiss.

“People have found it a very positive way to improve intimacy in communications with their partners when they are apart,” claims Hooman Samani of Singapore-based Lovotics, which developed the device.

This has to be one of the strangest creations, what is the point of it?
