Get a Facebook ‘Like’ and Tech-Savvy Vest Hugs You

It was recently revealed that Facebook now has one billion users — that’s 15% of the world’s population. That’s a pretty impressive achievement for Mr. Zuckerburg, if you ask us. There’s no denying the top-notch social network has become integrated into our daily lives, and now there’s a way to be physically rewarded by the site — ‘Like-A-Hug.’

Like-A-Hug is “a wearable social media vest that allows for hugs to be given via Facebook, bringing us closer despite physical distance.” Simply put, if anyone “likes” something on your profile, this tech-savvy piece of clothing inflates to simulate getting a hug. Just squeeze the inflated vest, and the other party gets hugged back.

It IS a cool idea, and an interesting play on the notion that people are becoming increasingly reliant on Facebook for validation, but it also makes a weird sound and the idea of wearing robot clothes that constricts around your chest and abdomen doesn’t seem like the smartest choice in the event of the inevitable robot apocalypse, so we might just stick to good ol’ fashioned regular hugs for now.
