A phone designed by the Berlin University of Arts simulates holding your hand, breathing on you and even kissing you. Designers say their phone's hand-holding is done with force sensors and a strap that goes around your hand that can tighten and simulate a squeeze.

As for the kissing? The phone has a moisture sensor and a motorized wet sponge that pushes against a membrane on the phone. Sensors can even differentiate between a quick peck and a wet sloppy kiss.
