Communicating with loved ones over long distances just got much easier. Now you don’t have to rely on kissing emoticons or make kissing noises over the phone (as tacky as it may sound) when you want to show your love and affection for your significant other. Instead, you can virtually transmit your kiss! Yes, that’s right, it’s possible now.
The Kissenger smartphone adapter helps you send “real” kisses over the internet. The device consists of high precision force sensors under the silicon lip which measures the dynamic forces at different parts of the lips. Then the device transmits this to your phone, from where, with the help of the app, it sends the kiss in real time to the other person’s lips, thereby creating a realistic kissing sensation. And not just that, there is a provision for a two-way interaction as well! According to the creators, “You can also feel the force on your lips when your partner kisses you back.”
The device fits over the phone like a cover and can be connected to the audio jack. The first working prototype was made for iOS, but since the product is still being researched, other models haven’t been released yet.
Sounds like long-distance relationships just stepped down a notch on the difficulty scale. Now we can send real kisses over the Internet; wonder what’s next!
