A Chinese male invented how to kiss people anywhere in the world over the internet


A ‘’ which has the capability to replicate the pressure, movement, and temperature of a user’s lips, mimicking a real kiss transmitted at distance was created in China as an invention of a university in Changzhou, being patented by the Changzhou Vocational Institute of Mechatronic Technology. The device which allows long-distance couples to share virtual intimate moments is equipped with ‘silicone lips,’ pressure sensors and actuators. It was imagined by student Jiang Zhongli, a man in a long-distance relationship with his girlfriend.


Users need to download a mobile app and insert the device into their phone’s charging port in order to send a kiss. Than couples can begin a video conference and send copies of their smooches to one another. Along with the kissing motion, the device can also transmit the sound the user make. Users can also “upload” their smooches in the app for others to download and experience. The device has produced a buzz among Chinese social media users. Some criticized it as “vulgar” and “creepy.” Some ask ‘where’s the tongue?’ “Imagine my partner experiencing different people’s kisses.…I already feel cheated,” said another. But others accepted the idea being interested to buy and have it. The device is priced at 288 yuan (US$41). The device is selling at a rate of more than 100 a month on the Chinese e-commerce platform Taobao.
