Kissinger: Smooching robot for virtual make-out sessions
The Kissinger kissing robot concept from Lovotics lets people virtually smooch with each other. Big silicone lips on each animal-shaped device register and replicate lip movements for long-distance affection.
Freelance writer Amanda C. Kooser covers gadgets and tech news with a twist for CNET. When not wallowing in weird gear and iPad apps for cats, she can be found tinkering with her 1956 DeSoto.
Kissinger wants to give you some lip. The robotic creation from Lovotics works in pairs so long-distance lovers can get in some lip-locks over the Internet.
Kissinger looks like a cross between a cow and a bunny. I know what you're thinking. That sounds super sexy! Well, you have to work with what you can get.
The bot sports some good-size lips. The idea is that you kiss away on your Kissinger and the touch-sensitive device sends the movements to another Kissinger far away. That Kissinger moves its own lips in response.
The lips are made from silicone and the kissing critter makes a sort of buzzing noise when it replicates a smooch.
So far, Kissinger is just lips, no tongue. The robot is in concept form, with no word on wider availability yet.
To summarize, two people each make out with sensitive cow/bunny robots and, therefore, actually make out with each other.
This is the way people will get it on the future when our benevolent robot overlords have taken control of the world.
