Valentine’s Day is approaching, but alas, not all of us can be with the ones we love (or love the ones we’re with). That led one Singapore researcher to try to bridge the affection gap that exists in long-distance relationships with a kissing robot.
While they may not be able to smooch in real life, a couple can lock lips via the Kissenger. This robot comes with a mouthpiece that can supposedly record your kissing style. Once the kiss has been logged, your partner’s Kissenger will alert them that they have a kiss waiting.
To redeem the kiss, the partner would then place their mouth against their respective Kissenger, which would mimic the original kiss. Awkward, to say the least, but perhaps a cute way to convey love from a distance.
