Kissenger: The Smartphone Accessory Allows You to Kiss Over Long Distances
Kissenger: As we all knew that Long-distance relationships are very difficult because not only is your lover or partner completely removed from your day-to-day life. But also you have absolutely zero possibility of tangible physical intimacy. This is very sad.
Therefore, to solve this problem, researchers from the Imagineering Lab at City University London think about it and launch their new Kissenger gadget.
Kissenger gadget mimics a real kiss using pressure sensors and actuators. It’s purely for regular pecks on the cheek or mouth, no tongue simulation is available on this gadget.
How Kissenger Work???
The new device pairs with a messaging app that lets a user send a kiss. Therefore when someone is sent a kiss to his/her lover, the Kissenger measures pressure on different parts of the sender’s lips to replicate that exact kiss on the recipient’s Kissenger.
The lip part of this gadget is made of silicon. The word Kissenger derived from the words Kiss and Messenger. The Kissinger made international news headlines when it was originally revealed. But this gadget never translated into an actual consumer product.
However, the idea of transmitting human kisses over long distances remained popular. Earlier, in this month, Emma Yann Zhang presented her own take on the idea.
The main aim of the Kissenger device is to replicate romantic kisses over long distance. But as per Emma Yann Zhang statement, this device can also be used by parents to give their children a kiss on the cheek when they are away at work.
The PhD student presented her invention at the recent Love and Sex with Robots conference, where she said that humans will certainly become more intimate with A.I. or robots.
Emma Yann Zhang admits that her invention still requires a fair bit of work to create a lifelike kissing experience. But she is already working to improve it.
Zhang and her team are working on a way to build fragrance into the Kissenger. Therefore users can also get the authentic smell of the person they want to kiss.
Zhang and her team also want to record data about blood pressure and heart rate to see if users are affected in the same way that they are by a real kiss.
One day the new gadget Kissenger will let you kiss your lover, or your mom, or even your favorite celebrity. The concept of long-distance kissing is definitely developing.
