    Japanese Lab Makes Internet Kissing Machine

    We admit to being sort of creeped out by this: A Japanese lab has created a device that may let let you "French kiss" someone over the Internet.
    And by "kiss," we mean waggle your tongue on a plastic straw, thereby making another plastic straw waggle remotely on someone else's tongue.
    Hot, huh?
    Well, the folks at Tokyo's Kajimoto Laboratory say it's just the beginning of what could become a full-on person-to-person experience over the Internet.
    The lab, part of The University of Electro-Communications, posted a video in which a researcher demonstrates the "Kiss Transmission Device." It's a motorized box that looks a little like a police Breathalyzer.

    I guess it's better than skynet becoming self-aware. We are all doomed when that day happens. Or maybe this event becoming reality actually turns the tide to making "machines" hate us.

    That is just plain yuck.

    These are the people making Toyotas, right? Hope they do not incoporate that feature into their future cars.

    I like to save money by slightly lagging technology. I think I'll wait until they come out with the internet "2nd base" machine. And even then, I'll probably buy refurbished.

    Would that make it a "Sloppy" 2nd base machine, then?
