Japanese Lab Invents Tongue Kissing Over the Internet

By “kiss,” we mean waggle your tongue on a plastic straw, thereby making another plastic straw waggle remotely on someone else’s tongue.

Hot, huh?

Well, the folks at Tokyo’s Kajimoto Laboratory say it’s just the beginning of what could become a full-on person-to-person experience over the Internet.

The lab, part of The University of Electro-Communications, posted a video in which a researcher demonstrates the “Kiss Transmission Device.” It’s a motorized box that looks a little like a police Breathalyzer.

The idea is to help lovers — in long-distance relationships, say — by transmitting the tactile sensation of kissing from one person to another. The lab is running both devices on the same computer, but says a system could be set up to connect them via the Web.

“Kiss information” can be recorded and replayed, presumably meaning someone could save and share a “kiss” over and over.

“For example, if you have a popular entertainer use this device and record it, that could be hugely popular if you offer it to fans,” Takahashi says. (Can you say, “Justin Bieber?”)

This and a fleshlight and you’re right there in the bedroom with them. Hooray technology.
