No surprise. Researchers at the Kajimoto Laboratory at the University of Electro-Communications in Japan are working on a machine that can replicate a kiss from the Internet.
How does it work? This article from FastCompany details how it can be done. Just approach the box, move the straw with your tongue and your partner gets a straw moving in their mouth the same way. Now, describing it is not really visually satisfying so check out this video so you can fully grasp the concept ;).
One of the researchers, Nobuhiru Takahashi, notes that “the elements of a kiss include the sense of taste, the manner of breathing, and the moistness of the tongue.” Now that they’ve got tongue movement down, they’re working on those.
They project that a famous musician or movie star could record kisses, and then fans could kiss their own boxes: Imagine young girls (or boys!) everywhere staying up late making out with a program of Justin Bieber’s kisses. It’s a million-dollar idea.
Ha! ha! Just how bizarre do people invent things these days. But really … it looks promising. What do you think?
Stuart Hughes, the British jeweler known for his expensive remakes of popular gadgets, is at it again, this time with a diamond-clad iPhone 4 with a price tag of 5 million pounds, or roughly $8 million. This luxurious of an iPhone had been added with around 500 individual flawless diamonds that total more than 100 carats.
There are 53 additional diamonds in the back and the main navigation button is made of platinum, holding a single cut 7.4 carat pink diamond. For the rich, this probably means something as only two of these will ever be made. The owner of one of these will have the slimmest chance in bumping with another who owns the same luxurious phone.
For us simple people living the simple life, I guess we could call this silly. What do you think? Is this worth it?
Have you seen the new Apple gadgets? Music has a whole new feel. The iPod nano has been completely redesigned with Multi-Touch – the same technology that makes iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch so amazing. Now it is half the size and even easier to play.
And everything you want to hear is just a tap or swipe away. I am sure previous Nano owners will surely be envious and … those who recently bought one, pissed.
This is a totally different Nano. In sleek anodized aluminum and seven bright colors, iPod nano makes a huge statement: You are, most definitely, ready to rock and you can now show off your album art, photos and the color-coordinated wallpaper on the 1.5-inch color display with 240-by-240 pixel resolution. It is tiny yet stunning.
