It’s the newest thing for long-distance relationships: an Internet kissing device for sending ‘actual’ kisses across the Internet. The Kissenger, which calls itself ‘the world’s first mobile kiss messenger’ accessory, and exhorts you to “experience Internet kissing”, is an add-on to your iPhone that you actually kiss, and which translates and sends that kiss to anyone who also has a Kissenger, who will feel the kiss you sent against their own lips, cheek, or other body part. {Ed. note: The Kissenger site talks only about lip-to-lip and lip-to-cheek kisses, but obviously this will be put to uses other.}

Here’s how the Kissenger actually works, according to the Kissenger website:

High precision force sensors are embedded under the silicon lip to measure the dynamic forces at different parts of your lips during a kiss. The device sends this data to your phone, which transmits it to your partner over the Internet in real time. Miniature linear actuators are used to reproduce these forces on your partner’s lips, creating a realistic kissing sensation. Kissenger provides a two-way interaction just like in a real kiss. You can also feel your partner’s kiss on your lips when they kiss you back.

The good folks at Kissenger suggest that you can use the the Kissenger device and app to connect with your long-distance paramour, to connect with family members across the miles, and “to connect idols and their fans from all around the world.” Huh?? Somehow we can’t see any celebrity hooking this thing up to their phone and letting fans have access to kissing them – especially as that presumes making their mobile number – or at least access to their mobile, public! (Sounds to us as if they had to pad their pitch in order to get investments.)

Says they, “Plug in to your phone and give your loved ones a kiss over the Internet. Kissenger can sense your kiss and transmit realistic kissing sensations to your partner in real time. You can also feel the force on your lips when your partner kisses you back. Share an intimate moment ({cough} “exchange”) with your friends and families ({cough} your cybersex partner) while chatting with them on your phone.”

While Kissenger has announced their app, it does not seem that the app or the device are readily available for sale yet, so if you want more information you will need to contact them through their site at

  1. This is only the beginning and a very low fidelity one, of an ever increasing world of remote self projection.

    Consider a full body suit that transmits full motion control to a remote android body that returns many forms of sensory input.

    Imagine stepping into a suit that fully controls a remote android AND where you could accurately feel any pressure on the remote android’s skin.

    Our technological capability is very nearly there, but as is true generally with artificial intelligence applications like self-driving cars and speech recognition, the last 20% of making it useful takes 80% of the effort.
