Kissing experts weigh in on Japanese kissing machine

Scientists in Japan are working on a kissing machine that will effectively transmit the feeling of a kiss, but kissing experts aren’t yet convinced that the device can measure up to the real thing.

The research is being done at Kajimoto Laboratory at the University of Electro-Communications with the ultimate goal of seeing if the tongue-tied test subjects can experience a kiss via machine.

The prototype pucker machine looks like a larger version of a kid’s juice box with a straw-like apparatus sticking out of the side.

    As if man turning to man and woman turning to woman is not bad enough, now they trying to get human beings to turn to a machines, if that is not the first one.

    But that is what the Word of God said also, in the last days human beings will lost their natural affection. Still for all so many of us still believe that we are untouchable from the wrath of God as he wipes out the very end so He can start those who survive at the end, with the new beginning.
