Some engineers at the University of Massachusetts, who obviously didn't receive enough hugs as kids, have developed a hugging vest. Supposedly it was developed for folks with high anxiety or autism, but everyone knows it was developed by some lonely engineers who needed a little love.
The vest has pockets with air bladders that can "hug" you by inflating with the push of a button. Push away, as long as it makes you feel better for driving your parents to alcoholism. Image via primidi
