The high-tech long-distance relationship.

"While lying on their beds miles away from each other, the couples wear touch-activated rings visible to a camera mounted above them. A computer vision system tracks the movement of the ring as one of the device's users passes it across their own body, or bed. At the same time these strokes are transmitted to and projected in beams of light on the body of their partner. The lines change colour if they cross."

That's the most depressing thing I've read in a long while.

Figures. It's a creation from the mind of a Japanese wierdo.

I liked the good old days of phone sex. It required more inventiveness.

Just tell Meade-

No!

Good lord - this is reverse trolling.

Ann - do you want lots of lewd comments about you and Meade or what?

*sheesh*

Talk about safe sex... this has to be the ultimate in look but don't touch. Anyone who can be 100% in their mind, without including their body in the equation, has his/her new playtool to replace human contact. Someone just tell them to get a room.

If you want something a bit harder than a beam of light, you could look into teledildonics.

So, is this what your thinking about with your fiance?
Slow but sure way to break it off.

"You know with this new invention you can stay in Cincinnati and I in Madison and we can still stay in touch. Not literally, but even better because I don't have to deal with garden smells, well you know...."

It's not all about me. (Or all about Meade.)

Less mess I suppose, but still.

Are we to understand there is a third party involved? The next episode of Bloggingheads.tv is going to be interesting, to say the least. I imagine instead of 3-D glasses viewers will be encouraged to buy one of these devices and join in the fun.
