The NBT: Social Media Vests

Is a vest that gives you a social media squeeze the next big thing?

Maggie: Art students at MIT have created a social media vest that looks a bit like an inflatable Snuggie. And here is how it works: you are walking down the street when one of your friends gives you a “Like” on Facebook.

The Like-A-Hug vest will automatically inflate like a lifejacket, giving you a feeling like an actual hug from your friends.

If you want to return the favor and give your friends a hug back, squeeze your vest and deflate it. The vest will then send a hug back to the other Like-A-Hug vest.
