Wondering how you will kiss your significant other in the future? Well, you, specifically, will be alone for the rest of your life, but the rest of us will be frenching non-stop over the internet via this little gadget.

See, you put the, uh, straw thing in your mouth? And then it replicates your tongue's movements, in a corresponding straw, in a corresponding internet-connected kiss-box, which is theoretically in your make-out partner's mouth. Are you as turned on as we are? And get this: "The kiss information for different individuals can be freely replayed," which means that "if you have a popular entertainer use this device and record it, that could be hugely popular if you offer it to fans."

Of course, it's still in the development stages. "The elements of kiss," the project developer tells us, "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." Powerful... and sexy.
