Friday Video: Robot teleports kiss across the Internet

Teleportation, long a science fiction staple and familiar to anyone who’s ever watched a Star Trek episode, in now real—at least for kisses. The Kissenger, a kiss messenger, transmits the physical elements of a kiss wirelessly from kisser to kissee. The idea comes from Hooman Samani, an artificial intelligence researcher at the Keio-NUS CUTE Center—a collaborative lab between the National University of Singapore (NUS) and Keio University of Japan. The electronics look suspiciously simple to me. Clearly, there are no Heisenberg Uncertainty Compensators or pattern buffers in the Kissenger’s current design, but then it’s only a prototype.
