Designers from the Japanese design firm Gung have developed Kaoiro, an emoticon stamp.  Kaoiro literally translates to “facial expression.” The object is a physical manifestation of the Japanese society’s obsessive use of emoticons in mobile communication.  Users can configure a combination of oft-used symbols to stamp emoticons onto paper.
