If you're too far away from your honey to exchange real kisses, you may soon be able to kiss him or her over the phone, using the—you guessed it—KissPhone. You actually kiss the phone—on its big, pink lips, to be precise—and the pressure, temperature, percussion speed, and "sucking force" of your mouth are measured. The phone then transmits these signals to your partner's KissPhone, which reproduces the conditions of the kiss. According to the "freelance inventor" behind the phone, you can even leave a kiss on an answering machine. Next up for R&D: The Breakup Phone.
