A Device That Lets You Kiss Someone Over the Internet. Sort of: [VIDEO]

A team at the University of Electro-Communications in Tokyo has invented a device that actually lets you kiss someone over the Internet. Sort of.

The device kind of looks like a straw on top of a box. It’s plugged into your computer, and someone else plugs one into their computer.

Then, you make out with the straw. And in real time, the things you do make the other person’s straw move, and vice versa. If you swirl your tongue, their straw moves accordingly, and your straw moves like their tongue.

So far, that’s all this thing can do. The researchers hope to find a way to incorporate other elements, like water coming out to simulate the amount of saliva in a kiss, plus scents, tastes, and more. Ewww!

They say, quote, “If we can recreate all of those I think it will be a really powerful device.” There’s no word on when these could be ready to hit the market . . . right now it’s still in basic prototype form. Get more information at The Register.
