Snork @ Sandy. Took me a minute, but I got it.

I read once that kissing on the lips was a Western custom that horrified the Japanese when they first saw it.
If true, it appears they got over it.
But this? I'd just as soon lick my computer screen.

"...for communicating with the mouth."??

As opposed to chatting via Morse code armpit farts?

snork @ punkin.
so, a boffin is a researcher?

"...haptic communications on the mouths..."

Really? Nothing like language or the internet to take the romance out of kissing...

What's next? Haptic sex? (I thought they have that already...)

Wait till they bring this to the theaters!

"360 degree Haptic-Touch!" They did this with our
sense of smell, So this, not just 3-d, has to be the next step!

Ten years ago there was a web site called fu-fme.com that purported to sell a teledildonic device (NSFW) that this kissing machine bears more than a passing resemblance to.

There's more to come in the near future.

"Teledildonics". Hunh. Learned a new word.

And *snork* @ Sandy.

Bill Clinton has already ordered the entire first year's production run. But he had it slightly modified....

Wow, Fantastic article and wonderful all round blog. So much to learn here. Thank you
