Chinese device lets long-distance couples kiss online, but without tongues

Talk about long-distance intimacy…

A Chinese device is making the rounds on social media for boasting features that allow users to “upload” and “receive” kisses through a mobile application and share an “intimate” moment with their significant other even when they are miles apart. 

According to a report by Yahoo! News, the viral kissing device is made with sensors that “simulate the actual pressure, movement, and heat of a kisser’s lips, allowing the device to send an exact replica of the smacker to the recipient’s device.”  Creepy or cool? 

The Global Times reported that the viral product was developed by a university team in Jiangsu province. “In my university, I was in a long-distance relationship with my girlfriend so we only contact with each other through phone. That’s where the inspiration of this device originated,” said project lead Jiang Zhongli.

Yahoo! News noted that a kissing device dubbed “Kissinger” also made headlines in 2016 with the same features and sensors.
