Researches in Japan are hard at work developing an internet-enabled kissing simulator that will allow lovers – or perfect strangers – to reach out and buss someone. "This device is for communications within the mouth," researcher Nobuhiro Takahashi of the Kajimoto Laboratory at The University of Electro-Communications in Tokyo …
"Researches in Japan are hard"; no doubt.
But methinks they should get out more ... There's a big, wide, world out there, full of likewise single, horny & wanting a bit MOTAS ...
"the goal is to obtain the feeling of kissing."
Poor guy. It hasn't worked out with the usual facebook/online-ads/etc for him, so instead he builds a robot to finally experience that elusive kissing thing? The mind boggles.

Competitive tongue hockey!
This device looks like it could be used like an arm-wrestle for the tongue! By remote (which is probably for the best).
Prime mover of technology is always...
I can see a version of this being popular with the live sex shows but instead of lips to lips contact it'll be lips to other parts!
"Commence lip identification scan."
Mmm, mmm, mm.
Makes me remember the old "fu-fme" of last millenia :)

Paris... well... guess why :p
Hah, Fu-fme, always wondered what happened with that page
" Takahashi agrees that much more needs to be done to enhance the K-LRMCD's stimulatory capabilities. "The elements of a kiss include the sense of taste, the manner of breathing, and the moistness of the tongue," "

Scratch and Sniff
My friend and I have developed scratch and sniff over the internet...Unfortunately, we've only managed one smell so far, It's called vegetarian fart. The user scratches the image on the screen, then sticks his finger up his rear and sniffs. We've been 100 per cent successful in trials!!
It is very telling ...
... that he couldn't find a lady to help demonstrate his device.
If he doesn't have a g/f now, this device will ensure he remains without. That's probably for the best!
They may have some teething problems...
..but I'm sure they'll soon have them licked
...presumably Google are already working on what ads to display to you based on your technique.
Japanese are weird
No, seriously, they are!
Daddy, what were you doing when the 2011 Tsunami hit? Well, son, you see, I was developing my Internet kissing machine.
Someone has to say this: it sucks..
Or maybe it wouldn't if it did (I leave you mentally sort that one out while I make my escape).
Thank you, and good night. The trilby, please.
....that the robotised Real Doll with this capability will be along eventually...
....one more step to making the lonely more lonely...
Not serious surely!
A bit tongue in cheek.
