Give yourself a hug with Sense-Roid


Family therapist, Virgina Satir advises: We need 4 hugs a day for survival. We need 8 hugs a day for maintenance. We need 12 hugs a day for growth.

That may seem a little much (then again, I think with how the world is coming to, we need to hug it out more often) and people may not be as “needy” for touch therapy as you are. Now, you never have to feel like you’re suffering from huglessness ever again.

A team from the University of Electro-Communications on Japan brings to you the Sense-Roid jacket. It uses pneumatic ‘muscles’ to simulate the pressure and sensations of a hug, a stroke, or a petting motion, as needed by the wearer.
