Need A Hug? Sense-Roid Jacket Lets You Give Yourself One

Need A Hug? Sense-Roid Jacket Lets You Give Yourself One

A Japanese team of electrocommunications specialists creates a jacket that simulates the pressure and sensations of human contact.

Have you ever found yourself yearning in vain to receive a warm hug? Then you were probably suffering from ‘chronic intermittent huglessness’ a situation that a team from the University of Electro-Communications on Japan wishes to eradicate with their newest invention, the Sense-Roid jacket. The jacket uses pneumatic ‘muscles’ to simulate the pressure and sensations of a hug, a stroke, or a petting motion, as needed by the wearer. Watch the video demonstration below:
