Send a Kiss to Your Loved One Online, and Feel Them Kiss You Back

For some people, this Kiss Transmission Device is the closest they'll get to the real thing—so please people, try to curb your snark for a few minutes while I tell you about how the Japanese devices link up over the internet, replicating the users' manipulation of the straw-like tool in their mouth. The person on the other end of the wireless line can feel, and respond in turn, to their kiss.

"The elements of a kiss include the sense of taste, the manner of breathing, and the moistness of the tongue. If we can recreate all of those I think it will be a really powerful device," claims the Kajimoto Laboratory creators. And that's just if it's contained to the mouth. Think about it.
