Kiss-modem: could only be a Japanese invention
posted September 2 2011 19:21.10 by Giorgos Lazaridis




I knew the French kiss, now i know the Japanese kiss! The Kajimoto Laboratory at the University of Electro-Communications is conducting research into tactile communications, with the aim of creating a device which can effectively transmit the feeling of a kiss.

This device is for communications within the mouth, in other words, the goal is to obtain the feeling of kissing.


How it works?

If you take one device in your mouth and turn it with your tongue, the other device turns in the same way. If you turn it back the other way, then your partner's turns back the same way, so your partner's device turns whichever way your own device turns."
"It is achieved only by motor rotations, and you control the rotation positions via PC. It is called a bilateral control, and the turn angle information is sent reciprocally by both devices to maintain the same position. Right now the values are handled by one PC, but if a system is put together to handle the values over a network, then it would be easy for this operation to be conducted remotely."


What they aim?

The elements of a kiss include the sense of taste, the manner of breathing, and the moistness of the tongue. If we can recreate all of those I think it will be a really powerful device.


What i personally think???

GET A LIFE

Making a homopolar motor is simple and fun
posted May 2 2011 20:14.07 by Giorgos Lazaridis




A homopolar motor is a -not so common- kind of motor that has a magnetic along the rotor axis, which usually acts as a single-wound coil, which limits them in very low operation...
