    Kissing Experts Weigh In On Japanese Kissing Machine:confused:

    Scientists in Japan are working on a kissing machine that will effectively transmit the feeling of a kiss, but kissing experts aren't yet convinced that the device can measure up to the real thing.

    The research is being done at Kajimoto Laboratory at the University of Electro-Communications with the ultimate goal of seeing if the tongue-tied test subjects can experience a kiss via machine.

    The prototype pucker machine looks like a larger version of a kid's juice box with a straw-like apparatus sticking out of the side.

    "If you take one device in your mouth and turn it with your tongue, the other device turns in the same way," researcher Nobuhiro Takahashi told diginfo.tv "If you turn it back the other way, then your partner's turns back the same way, so your partner's device turns whichever way your own device turns."

    Don't knock it till ya tried it..:lol:

    Heh..been to Japan a number of times. It's a very conservative culture. And like most conservative cultures once you look under the hood..you find some real "fun" stuff.

    Careful what you wish for..

    I doubt this will replace the Japanese BJTF machine.

    I would venture to guess that this is one of those unintended consequences of defeating Japan in WWII.
