As soon as I saw freelance inventor George Koussouros’ newest invention, the KissPhone, I had the exact same reaction you had: “Eeuwwww”.
Okay, I wasn’t able to spell that interjection well, but I believe that if you were creeped out by the KissPhone, then you’re probably pretty normal.
The purpose of the KissPhone is, you guessed it, a way to transmit a kiss from one person to the other. All you need to do is press your lips against the Mick Jagger souvenir there, and the artificial mouth somehow detects percussion speed, pressure, temperature, and sucking force of the lips. Then send it over the wireless network for another person’s pleasure.
In other words, you now have a legitimate reason to make out with your cellular phone. Yeah, you might not want to do that in public. What would you call that, a WPDA? (Wireless Public Display of Affection, gross!)
Oh, I haven’t told you the best part. If you want a kiss from Madonna or your favorite “imaginary Hero”, you can get it from the “kiss bank”. I have no idea how they got a “kiss recording” from the Material Girl, but you shouldn’t waste your life trying to figure out if the KissPhone did a legitimate job.
This is one of those products where I could really go on about how unnatural this is, and how we’re getting too infatuated with our technology, but I think this picture says ten thousand words.
