Kissing your loved ones via Internet has been a rather unsatisfying experience up to now, usually restricted to blowing kisses at your computer screen while skyping with home. But that is about to change, thanks to researchers at City University London who have a device called „Kissenger“. It has a slot for your iPhone and a pink lip-shaped surface that can record and transmit realistic kissing sensations to a partner in real time. High precision force sensors are embedded under the silicon smackers to measure the dynamic forces at different parts of lips during a kiss. Miniature linear actuators are used to reproduce these forces on the partner’s lips, creating what its investors describe as a realistic smoochy feeling. Of course, we need to keep in mind that these guys are nerds, so maybe don’t exactly know what its like to make out in real life.
