How about we just show each other our privates and call it a Skype?
Seen here reaching previously unknown levels of sadness, a user demos Kajimoto Laboratory's Kiss Transmission Device. The devices were designed to simulate the kiss of a lover (or webcam stripper!) across the internet by connecting two people with a box of rotating electronics in their mouth. Mmmmmmmm. NOW CHOKE ME WITH YOUR TONGUE.
"If you take one device in your mouth and turn it with your tongue, the other device turns in the same way. If you turn it back the other way, then your partner's turns back the same way, so your partner's device turns whichever way your own device turns."
The position information values can also be recorded, and the kiss information for different individuals can be freely replayed.
"For example, if you have a popular entertainer use this device and record it, that could be hugely popular if you offer it to fans."
"The elements of a kiss include the sense of taste, the manner of breathing, and the moistness of the tongue. If we can recreate all of those I think it will be a really powerful device."
Damn, that sounds romantic. Oooooor like chewing on a Matchbox car. Call me old fashioned, but I still like to kiss the way nature intended: like I'm trying to suck somebody's lunch back up their throat. BABY BIRD ME -- GO GO GO!
Hit the jump for sadness closeups in case you're into depressing (including one shot of guy staring at his lover's ass!)

Thanks to Alan, who once kissed his monitor after spotting a boob. A boob, or a really good Groupon?
