Kissenger: transmitting a kiss over a distance

Remember that Big Bang Theory episode in which Howard and Raj are kissing? Nope, not that one (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dErx8rZehuk), the other one (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=au4vWNXac1k).

Well, Lovotics made the dream become reality.

“Kissenger, as the name suggests, is all about transmitting a kiss over a distance. The basic concept is that you have two robots, both outfitted with an artificial pair of lips. The lips are highly touch-sensitive, but can also be manipulated by motors inside the robot. Then, when you want to kiss someone remotely, you both whip out your Kissenger robot… and kiss it. Your lip movements are transmitted to the other robot, and vice versa. The idea is that you could be half way around the world, but as long as you have your Kissenger with you, you can kiss your friends and family back home.”
