Here Remote Kiss, the Chinese online kissing device now available! On sale for $40 on Taobao, one of China's largest online shopping platforms. The device has received hundreds of reviews. Chinese social media users are horrified though, considering the device vulgar and creepy.
Many have expressed concern about the possible use by minors. Few see the funny side of it. Around this device, however, controversy immediately arose. On the Chinese shopping site TaoBao, which sells it, the comments are mostly baffled, from people who even find it vulgar or disturbing, reports CNN.
On Twitter, however, reads: "I do not understand this and I'm definitely shocked." Global Times of China said the invention was patented by the Changzhou Vocational Institute of Mechatronic Technology. Jiang Zhongli, the inventor of the device, said: "At my university, I had a long-distance relationship with my girlfriend, so we only had contact with each other through the phone.
That's where the inspiration for this device came from."
How does it work
To send a kiss, users need to download a cell phone app and connect the device to the phone's charging port. Once reunited in the app, couples can initiate a video call and broadcast reruns of their kisses to each other.
You can also use the device as a dtaing app. The device, in fact, allows users to use the kissing Square function to anonymously kiss perfect strangers. Users can also upload their kisses to the app for others to download and try.
The device is equipped with pressure sensors and actuators capable of replicating the pressure, movement, sound and temperature of the lips, thus simulating a real kiss.
How it's done
These are silicon lips that allow lovers to exchange effusions at a distance, giving the impression of being, intimately, in the same place.
The singular device, equipped with pressure sensors and actuators, is causing various controversies among Chinese users, due to its ability to replicate the pressure, movement, sound and temperature of the lips, thus simulating a real kiss.
