We have children born to parents that do not want them and parents that abort their children for the most flippant of reasons. I'm sure for every serious problem I could list, there are in fact orders of magnitudes more.

Because there is no telling where discovery will come from? Granted this particular device seems silly and likely isn't going to be the next x-ray, but that doesn't mean that odd or fringe projects that aren't in response to a problem or have no practical applications shouldn't be pursued. Let corporations, scientists and engineers create freely, there's no telling what it could lead to (a better pressure sensor, cheaper biometal fibers , robot love slaves, etc...)

I fear the kind of stranger that would send a kiss via such a device... I did giggle when I thought of naming it Henry though, I am odd.
 
2012-07-19 09:43:00 PM  
Unveiled at the Designing Interactive Systems conference in Newcastle, UK, in June, Kissenger comprises a pair of pressure-sensitive soft plastic lips which protrude through a smooth plastic casing the size of a large Easter egg.

Um... Nothing named "Kissenger" will ever touch my lips. The inevitable mental association would not be pleasant.

Also, I think you meant that it's the shape of a large Easter egg. Anything larger than an average Easter egg is the size of a large Easter egg. A brick, for example, or a gila monster, or your mom. And anyway, why an Easter egg, as opposed to just, you know, an egg? An Easter egg is distinguished from a non-Easter egg by neither its shape nor its size, but rather by virtue of being decorated, which this object is not (a creepy-ass set of robotic lips does not qualify). The thing has the shape of a large egg. Even the word large isn't a good decriptive choice, because in the context of eggs, it denotes a specific size range far smaller than the... than the Kissenger, as I suppose I must call it. So it is the size of an ostrich egg, then, or an emu egg, or whatever kind of egg best fits. That would probably give most of your readers there at the NewScientist a good idea of how big the Kissenger is, but to be sure, maybe you should just say that it is shaped like an eight-inch egg or whatever.
