The Stupidest Egg-Shaped Long Distance Kissing Product We’ve Ever Seen

And, okay, it’s the first one too.It’s the Kissing Egg … or, more precisely, the “Kissenger” (really!) as the scientists who developed it call it.

From New Scientist:

Kissenger comprises a pair of pressure-sensitive soft plastic lips which protrude through a smooth plastic casing the size of a large Easter egg.

The lips contain pressure sensors and actuators. When you kiss them, the shape changes you create are transmitted in real time over the net to a receiving Kissenger. There, the actuators reproduce the mirror image of the pressure patterns you created– magically transmitting your smacker to your partner.

“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.

The device is a prototype and Samani says it will not be commercialised until “all the ethical and technical considerations are covered”. He adds: “I am not interested in sexual uses for it.”

Hmm… we’re getting a few ideas though.
