Interactive 'posters' from Japan will react to being kissed

title or description

If you've ever been to Tokyo or any other large Japanese city, you'll have noticed the huge variety of billboards plastering the urban landscape, often featuring the month's most popular idol. Now researchers at Keio University are working on a system that will allow passers-by to interact with said posters via an ultrasound sensor setup. The sensor will detect the motion of people in front of it, and display appropriate pictures in response — "appropriate" may not be the right word for everyone, though, as the main use case demonstrated by the researchers so far is the ability to "kiss" the idol on screen. After you've expressed your affection for the poster and moved your head away, the girl blushes with embarrassment, for example.

There was a post on tumblr about a mum joking with her daughter getting pregnant from her posters... Well, if it depends on Japan, it isn't that faraway x'DD

idk, like, I'm not going to say I WOULDN'T kiss my idol because I would, but... knowing that so many other people had kissed it just feels like germ spreading waiting to happen.

lol wtf is this Ice...
Maybe they should have sanitary wipes or something by the posters so people can wipe the poster before kissing it lol.

Seems really unsanitary, but it's an interesting concept. We already have interactive ads with games and such, and this just seems like an extension of that.

So all the guys kissing the poster will essentially be kissing each other?

Only in Japan man.....

This may not be ONLY in Japan though. XD
There are quite a number of people kissing in the public on posters.XD
Luckily its not French Kiss.

This is kinda creepy though it doesn't stop me from wanting this kind of posters to come with every Arashi's DVD that I purchase :P XDDD

Indirect kisses that I don't want to think about.

interactive posters for digital advertising sounds cool.
but the poster that kisses you back is a bit weird.

not a hygiene freak but still won't kiss that thing (apart from the embarrassment of kissing a poster in public)..

the interactive idea sounds cool though
