Coming soon - the pop-star poster that kisses you back

IF you ever found kissing a pop star on a poster vaguely unsatisfying, researchers in Japan may have found a solution.



They are developing an interactive image of a Japanese girl who puckers up when you get close and blushes when you leave.



It is hoped the technology will have uses in digital signage and on tablets.



Watch the video for a demonstration above.

Keio University’s Keidai Ogawa said there was real potential to have celebrities license their image for commercial uses.



"I'm a big fan of pop idols, and I have posters in my room," Mr Ogawa said. "It bugged me the posters didn't move at all.



"I think people would be really attracted to a face that gives a kiss as they walk past."



He also hopes to introduce elements like scents from perfumes and shampoos and even sweet nothings like whispers of “I love you”
