Remote Kissing Device

Nobuhiru Takahashi, student at the Kajimoto Laboratory of the University of Electro-Communications in Chofu City, Tokyo, invented this Internet French kissing device. When a bended straw is touched with the tongue on one end, the motion-parameters will be transferred to a similar device on the other.

This invention taps a new market; the storing and trading of famous-idol-kissing-data. Takahashi, notes that "the elements of a kiss include the sense of taste, the manner of breathing, and the moistness of the tongue". With tongue movement down, these properties have his attention now (let's hope for Takahashi he gets to do some actual research). The device could also palliate more fundamental issues: "love miles" for instance (the miles we must travel out to people we care about).

Though the technique is not as proficient as f.e. robotic surgery; remote kissing could herald a new compassion-through-internet era!

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Joyce Nabuurs: To me this question seems to be a logical next step in the emancipation movement of the past century. More and more women entered the workspace, but the responsibility for pregnancy and childrearing remained female.
