File this under “weirdest inventions ever made”…
There is a Chinese kissing device that actually lets you kiss someone over the internet and it’s so weird…
This device was made as a way to let long-distance couples share “real” physical intimacy and it has everyone talking.
According to reports, the device is equipped with pressure sensors and actuators that allows the device is to be able to mimic a real kiss by replicating the pressure, movement and temperature of a user’s lips.
It can even mimic the sound a person makes when puckering up…
In order for the device to work, users need to download a mobile phone app and plug the device into their phone’s charging port.
After pairing with their partners phones in the app, couples can start a video call and transmit replicas of their smooches to each other.
So, why was this strange device ever created? Well, the creator invented it for his own relationship.
“In my university, I was in a long distance relationship with my girlfriend so we only had contact with each other through the phone. That’s where the inspiration of this device originated,”Jiang Zhongli, the leading inventor of the design, was cited as saying by the Global Times.
Oh and if you don’t have a significant other you want to kiss with, don’t worry. The app also has the ability to pair you up anonymously with strangers in the “kissing square” function of the app.
If you and a stranger match and like each other, you can ask to exchange kisses.
Personally, I see this being used for some overly explicit content but don’t they already make devices for that?
Yeah so, this exists and I am still unsure why but hey, to each their own, right?
