Let’s face it. We’re always wondering what great hurdle technology will help us overcome next. Kissing probably isn’t on top of that list for many people. Yet, here we are. There’s a new device out of China that allows users to kiss long distance. And it’s causing a lot of controversy on Chinese social media platforms.

What the Kissing Device Does

The gadget comes complete with silicone lips that move, have temperature variance and sounds. All to mimic the user and their partner. The technology programs the machines with sensors and actuators. That allows the device to mimic real kissing from a user. It does this by replicating the movement and pressure of the user’s lips. It even has the technology to replicate the lip’s temperature.

And if that’s not realistic (or creepy) enough, the device can also mimic the sounds a user makes when they’re kissing.

Why Kissing Device Was Invented.

The reason for this technology is actually a good one. It is meant to keep intimacy alive in long distance relationships. At least that’s what the company claims. The patent is owned by the Changzhou Vocational Institute of Mechatronic Technology, CNN reported. A Malaysian company launched a similar invention in 2016.

So it’s not the first time this kind of thing has seen the light of day. And it does have some positives for couples. But there are many people who are very skeptical about its possibilities. It’s sparked quite the polarized conversation on Weibo, a Twitter-like platform in China. And there have been many negative comments about the invention.

Some say its vulgar. Others worry about it getting into the hands of children. But on the other end of the spectrum, many people who have bought one love it.

How the Kissing Device Works

The device connects to the user’s cell phone, via the charging port. Then partners video call and use the device to simulate a kiss. Although the invention has been marketed to couples in long-distance relationships, it also has options for the single user. There is a mobile app associated with the product that offers users to pair up anonymously with others and exchange kisses.

Dozens of buyers have already posted their reviews on the new product. And it looks like overall it is a success. Intimacy for $41 isn’t a bad deal.

New App Let's You Chat With Jesus, Hitler And Others

Yes, you can actually chat with people like Jesus or Hitler. The app is called Historical Figures. It allows you to chat with historical figures and people are using it to chat with people like Jesus, Princess Diana and Freddie Mercury.

The app is under fire because they’re allowing people to even have the option to chat with people like Hitler.

The app is free to download and became available on Apple’s App Store at the beginning of January. With the app, you are able to chat with famous deceased people who have made a significant impact on history.

Like all apps for your phone or devices, some things are free and other parts of it are not. Obviously Jesus and Hitler are big ones people want to chat with and it’s not free. When you sign up for the app, you’re given seventy-five credits to start with. Figures like Jesus and Hitler cost five-hundred credits to chat with! So you’re gonna need to shell out money to chat with the more popular figures on it.

There are over twenty-thousand virtual personalities to choose from, including music artists like Jim Morrison, Judy Garland, and more.

Schools are using it for educational purposes but that has fired back because of the opportunity to chat with dictators like Hitler, which isn’t appropriate for schools.

The app was created by a man named Sidhant Chadda. Chadda mentioned that the app is still being worked on to make it more friendly and accurate.

While the app has had some major criticism, people like me are using it for fun. I’ve asked Jim Morrison and Judy Garland questions and the responses are fun!
