"Kissenger".............what strange a name......it reminds me of the retired "MSN Messenger"............yet it is spelled kind of nicely~
Watch some "Kissenger" in action here :

"Kissenger haptic kisses: On the coming 2017-02-14 Valentine's Day, what better than sending kisses away with a love phone.
This is called Kissenger, a device that works as a kind of "mobile phone kissing" that has been presented at the conference on "Love and Sex with Robots." The idea is to be able to send kisses from a distance that we can actually feel in our skin thanks to the haptic technology. In fact, the device is part of a project by researcher Emma Yann Zhang, who has aimed to help solve problems "inherent in long-distance relationships" with this unique product that offers "effective communication of deep emotions and Of intimacy through a multisensorial experience of communication on the internet ".
The description is somewhat grandiloquent, but the truth is that the solution is unique: the "cradles" (docks) in which the iPhones are inserted (we do not know if it works with other smartphones) count in the lower part with a small silicone pad. The two people who communicate via FaceTime or Skype have the option to send a kiss not only with text or emoticons, but also "physically". All you have to do is to "kiss" that pad, which will cause the kissing pressure pattern to be recorded so that the person receiving the kiss can place the pad on the cheek (or lips) on the other side and can Feel the same pressure transmitted through small activators that reproduce that pattern. The Kissenger is intended not only for human beings, but as a possible way to explore the man-machine relationships of the future. The experiments that will be carried out will also make this development try to pass the Turing test so that a receiver (of the kiss) tries to decide if the one who has kissed him at a distance is a human or a machine that imitated the pattern of a Human kiss"
Japanese people's crazy (and innovative) idea made practical once more with this one!
Let us kiiiiiisssssss our mobile phone now, while imagining the other side of our phone call doing the same thing..........
