Kissinger Lets You Send Real Kisses In Realtime

Being in a long distance relationship isn’t easy, but life just may have gotten a bit sweeter for those of you in one. A device called Kissinger is being billed as the “world’s first mobile kiss messenger.” It lets you send physical kisses to your loved one, who’ll presumably feel them just as if they were in your presence.

High precision force sensors are embedded under the silicon lip to measure the dynamic forces at different parts of your lips during a kiss. The device sends this data to your phone, which transmits it to your partner over the Internet in real time. Miniature linear actuators are used to reproduce these forces on your partner’s lips, creating a realistic kissing sensation. Kissenger provides a two-way interaction just like in a real kiss. You can also feel your partner’s kiss on your lips when they kiss you back.

Of course you might want to do all this is privacy, considering you’re actually going to be making out with your phone; we don’t need to tell you how bizarre you might look to anyone who doesn’t know what you’re doing.

There’s no word on price or availability, but apparently there is a working prototype.

Deal Of The Day: Octopus Hat

And why not? Why not go down the slopes with an Octopus Hat instead of a regular ski mask? Is there any reason you wouldn’t want to “unleash your inner cephalopod”, especially considering it’ll set you back only $12.99 to do so? The Octopus hat comes in 3 colors, is made from 100% knitted cotton (100% knitted, or 100% cotton?… ) and… we just ran out of things to say about such a simple, yet cool, product.

The Ockel Sirius B Windows 10 Pocket PC Fits In Your Pocket

In the world of consumer electronics, there’s usually a tradeoff between performance and size. And while that’s still true of the Ockel Sirius B Windows 10 Pocket PC, you’ll find that you’re not giving that much away in order to be able to carry a fully-functional Windows 10 PC in a device about the size of an iPhone 6s.

As the world gets more advanced, technology is getting smaller, not bigger. Case in point: the Ockel Sirius B Windows 10 Mini-Computer. This pocket-sized PC is powered by an Intel processor and 2GB of RAM, and boasts high-speed built-in WiFi and Bluetooth. Plus, with a wide range of inputs and outputs, you can link with just about any device you want.

“Meet Sirius B, an iPhone 6s-sized Windows 10 PC that might replace your desktop,” BGR

– Compute powerfully on the move w/ Intel-powered Windows 10
– Use this pocket-size PC wherever you want by simply plugging into an HDMI display & connecting to a power outlet
– Quickly browse files & open applications with the built-in 32GB flash storage
– Connect to almost any device you want w/ two USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI port, Micro SD card slot, & AUX in/AUX out
– Browse fast & connect wirelessly w/ ease thanks to built-in WiFi & Bluetooth

Granted, you’ll still have the issue of not being able to carry a keyboard and display around as easily, but there are fairly straightforward setups that would get around that issue without too much issue. For the size and convenience, te $189 asking price seems more than reasonable.

MasterPan Multi-Sectional Meal Skillet

One of the biggest challenges for me, when I’m cooking, is to time things so that everything is ready and hot at the same time. This usually means having two or three pans on the stove at once, and juggling back and forth between them. With the MasterPan Multi-Sectional Meal Skillet, you get five separate cooking sections on the same pan.

Cooking an entire meal has never been easier, cleaner, and faster than with MasterPan. Divided into five sections, MasterPan is designed with a heavy gauge bottom to distribute heat flow evenly so you can cook several items at once, all on the same burner. No more juggling burners and cooking times; your whole meal is right there cooking in front of you.

– Cook multiple items evenly & at once on a single burner
– Remove food easily thanks to non-stick coating
– Wash by hand or in the dishwasher–you’re still only cleaning 1 dish
– Consume your food more safely; no PFOA, heavy metals, lead, or cadmium added

It’s not quite the kitchen revolution, but at $49, it’s an inexpensive way to add a little productivity to your food prepping repertoire.

Steampunk Light Switch

Are you still into Steampunk, the retro-futuristic Victorian-era-inspired aesthetic that was all the rage a couple years ago? Well, have we ever got a light switch for you. It fits over most standard wall switches in the USA; just unscrew the plate cover and screw this one in instead.

My lever system has a bolt and nut design that allows you to adjust the amount of torque needed to flip the lights on and off. Your purchase comes with a small, matching wrench to help you adjust the bolts. It also comes with a steel spacer plate that ensures a tight seal against the wall and also prevents wobbling and unsightly gaps.

This design is compatible with toggle switches. If you have a dimmer or rocker switch, I can include a 15A-120V toggle switch with your order at no extra charge.

It’s actually made from plasma cut steel, which makes it look and feel more authentic. And by the way, if your home has more of an industrial feel (the grown up version of steampunk), it’ll work just as well there. It’s $65.
