Kissing Machine Is Real, Lets You Make Out via a Gadget

The Kiss Transmission Device transmits kisses through a rotary tube. Ewwww.

Not a great kisser? Maybe you'll be able to practice with this kissing machine someday. Developed by the Kajimoto Laboratory at the University of Electro-Communications in Tokyo, this Kiss Transmission Device is the latest in analog smooching technology: It can take input via your tongue and translate it to a paired device and supposed recipient--if there is one, that is.

The "interacting" part of the device looks like the tube used for a Breathalyzer test, but instead of just breathing into it you need to "lap" your tongue, turning the tube over and over again in your mouth. The other linked box, which supposedly can be connected over a network, will transfer the tube's motion through a built-in motor, to make the other tube swirl and whirl inside their mouth. Sounds pleasant!

The researchers say they're not satisfied just yet, and that they hope to reproduce the taste, breath, and moistness of a kiss. In addition they in vision a future where you can pretend make-out with kiss samples by you favorite celebrities. Uh, we'll let you make of that what you will...

Would you make out with a machine?
