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.
- Is the Like-A-Hug vest the next big thing?
