Want to send your faraway lover a kiss? A Chinese contraption with warm, moving silicon "lips" appears to have just the answer.
The device, advertised as a way to let long-distance couples share "real" physical intimacy, is causing a buzz among Chinese social media users, who have reacted with both intrigue and shock.
Equipped with pressure sensors and actuators, the device is said to be able to mimic a real kiss by replicating the pressure, movement and temperature of a user's lips.
Along with the kissing motion, it can also transmit the sound the user makes.
