KDDI Corp. said Tuesday it has developed an easy-to-use communication tool that looks like a teddy bear and can help young children and grandparents stay in touch.

The Comi Kuma device has 12 built-in sensors and a Bluetooth module that allow it to work in sync with a smartphone. If one kisses a Comi Kuma, for instance, a corresponding image showing one bear kissing another will appear on the display in the ribbon worn by another user’s bear.
