Remote kissing device is here for long-distance couples: How Internet is reacting to Chinese innovation
Couples can start a video conference and email each other copies of their kisses.
Jiang Zhongli, a man in a long-distance relationship with his girlfriend, found it difficult to maintain intimacy while being apart from each other. Due to the distance, their communication was limited to phone calls only. It was during this time that Zhongli came up with an innovative solution to overcome the challenges faced by long-distance couples. He was inspired to invent a device that could allow couples to share virtual intimate moments.
Users need to download a mobile app and insert the device into their phone's charging port in order to send a kiss. Couples can begin a video conference and send copies of their smooches to one another after partnering with their partners via the app.
The Internet was quick to react. One of them pointed out that the idea had been pitched in one of the episodes of The Big Bang Theory. Howard introduced a “kissing machine" to Leonard and Raj. While Leonard did not agree on trying it, Raj came forward and tried the machine. “I’m impressed. This is very lifelike," he said.
Many social media users found the device to be amusing, but others denounced it as "vulgar" and "creepy." Some people expressed worry that kids would purchase and utilise it. “Man, that is just wrong......" said one user. “The aliens can come get us at any moment I’m ready to leave this place it’s getting REALLY weird!" said another.
