Long-distance relationships come with their own unique challenges and some of us have experienced it too in our lives. Couples experience the good, and the bad side of their partners as the distance makes them long for each other. To foster the bond and overcome the challenges in the relationship, a man from China named Jiang Zhongli, came up with a creative solution for long-distance couples and made a ‘kissing device' that can replicate the feeling of a real kiss. Zhongli found it difficult to maintain intimacy with his girlfriend in their long-distance relationship as their communication was just limited to phone calls. This inspired him to invent a device that could allow couples to share virtual intimate moments.
