Kid Invents 'Snogometer' In The '60s, Results Are Hilarious (VIDEO)

The '60s was a time of social revolution, from the Summer of Love to Neil Armstrong landing on the moon.

Of course none of these things can really compare with Malcolm Pickard; a boy wonder who created the world's first 'Snogometer'.

This incredible (and hilarious) contraption measures the 'intensity' of a snog by making the two recipients hold what appears to be a couple of 'state-of-the-art' sensors.

Naturally the whole thing was filmed and thankfully for all of us it was preserved for all time in Pathe's vast archive of historical footage. Watch, enjoy and be amazed.
