Now that so many people are meeting their sweethearts online with the help of social media, it makes sense that we’d start seeing more and more gadgets that are designed to make the romantic online dynamic feel the same as if it was romantic IRL, sort of. As much as we (me included) will argue that online relationships are as real as offline relationships are, when it comes to romance, that may not always be the case. There is nothing, in my opinion, which can replace the feeling of holding a man’s hand, touching his skin, and of course, kissing his lips.
However, that doesn’t stop people from trying to find viable ways to create these experiences. What you see below is the Kissenger, which is a long distance kiss messenger. In order for this to work, both people have to have that little pig looking robot thing. When they want to kiss each other, they simply kiss their pieces of plastic. The Kissenger will then transmit the lip movements from one to the other.
I have a few things to say about this. First of all, I wonder why they chose to make the little robot look like a bunny or a pig or whatever that is. It seems like a heart or something might be a little bit more pleasant to kiss. Secondly, who wants to kiss cold plastic? I wish it was softer and warmer. Oh well, I guess it’s better than this smartphone which allows you to feel someone’s kiss by using a wet sponge inside the phone. The more I type about this, the more I think I’ll keep my romantic encounters offline, but that’s just me. Maybe you have found something that works much better for you and your sweetie. If so, tell us about it!
