Terrifying wearable social media vest “hugs” you when someone likes your status on FB. If we’re going to make future vests can we invent this one first?

Like-A-Hug is a wearable social media vest that allows for hugs to be given via Facebook, bringing us closer despite physical distance. The vest inflates when friends ‘Like’ a photo, video, or status update on the wearer’s wall, thereby allowing us to feel the warmth, encouragement, support, or love that we feel when we receive hugs. Hugs can also be sent back to the original sender by squeezing the vest and deflating it.

    Is this really necessary? Are we desperate for connection and social acceptance?
