MODERN LIVING CAN occasionally feel cold and impersonal.
So much of our communication is done through technological devices, that sometimes all you need is a good old fashioned hug.
Well, you’re in luck, because now someone has figured out a way to translate Facebook likes into hugs…sort of.
Essentially, Like-a-Hug is a body warmer which inflates when the user receives a ‘like’, apparently giving the wearer a huglike sensation.
According to one of its designers:
Like-A-Hug is a wearable social media vest that allows for hugs to be given via Facebook, bringing us closer despite physical distance.
Is it just us, or is this deeply, deeply tragic?
H/T to Shortlist.
