If you thought the internet was perverted now, just wait and see what the future has in store. Thanks to the Kajimoto Laboratory at the University of Electro-Communications in Tokyo, we can look forward to simulated tongue kissing over the internet.
Check out the video after the break.
“If you take one device in your mouth and turn it with your tongue, the other device turns in the same way. If you turn it back the other way, then your partner’s turns back the same way, so your partner’s device turns whichever way your own device turns.”
“It is achieved only by motor rotations, and you control the rotation positions via PC. It is called a bilateral control, and the turn angle information is sent reciprocally by both devices to maintain the same position. Right now the values are handled by one PC, but if a system is put together to handle the values over a network, then it would be easy for this operation to be conducted remotely.”
The creators suggest that a kiss transmission device like this one could be enhanced to replicate the sense of taste, breathing and the moistness of the tongue. The motions could also be recorded, meaning celebrities could sell their kiss to fans.
I’m sure you can easily envision all the ways in which this can be sad and disturbing.
