London :

Technology is advancing day by day and now we literally have a technology to send a kiss to someone in the long distance over the internet. A new smartphone gadget developed by researchers lets you send a physical smooch to somebody’s lover sitting somewhere else in any part of the world through the internet.   

The device is called ‘Kissenger’ works with pressure sensor and actuators.

It functions with a very simple mechanism- it records the user’s kiss and transmits the same to an identical receiving device, which then recreates the kiss for the person on the other end through a mobile application which also features the function of video calling.

Emma Yann Zhang who worked on the prototype as PhD student at City University London said, “Kissing is the most direct and universal expression of intimacy and affection.”  

“It’s a way for us to bond and maintain intimacy in our relationships,” she added.

Zhang further stated, “Also, its stress reducing; when we engage in this kind of intimate physical touch, we have a lower level of blood pressure.”

Researchers also said that parents can also use ‘Kissenger’ to give their children a kiss on the cheek when they are away at work.
