Japan is leading the world in progressing toward a future filled with fully automated relationships and virtual reality sex. Some Japanese resort towns have even started catering to men vacationing with virtual high school girlfriends. Now Japanese researchers are so close to simulating a physical relationship that they can taste victory—or at least they can taste the plastic toggle they’ve developed to simulate a lover's tongue.
The “kiss transmission device” fits in your mouth similar to the mouth guards psychiatric nurses used to force between the teeth of shock therapy patients. Once in place, the device records and transmits your tongue movements to a corresponding machine in your electronic lover’s mouth.
