Last month we told you about a study that proves more emojis = more sex. It’s perfectly reasonable, then, to expect people to litter every possible conversation with them. 

So why stop at mobile?

California-based tech studio Disk Cactus has a team of ‘Emoji Scientists’ working hard to put your favourite goofy characters under your fingertips.

“You can have more evocative and abstract ideas connecting and communicating and conveying ideas and emotions,” says co-founder Benjamin Lotan.
