Jacket gives wearer a hug for every Facebook like

Was it for this?

MODERN LIVING CAN occasionally feel cold and impersonal.

So much of our communication is done through technological devices, that sometimes all you need is a good old fashioned hug.

Well, you’re in luck, because now someone has figured out a way to translate Facebook likes into hugs…sort of.

Essentially, Like-a-Hug is a body warmer which inflates when the user receives a ‘like’, apparently giving the wearer a huglike sensation.

According to one of its designers:

Like-A-Hug is a wearable social media vest that allows for hugs to be given via Facebook, bringing us closer despite physical distance.

Is it just us, or is this deeply, deeply tragic?
