Meet the Sense-Roid, a touchy mannequin from Japan's University of Electro-Communications. When you don a special tactile jacket and hug this torso, it gropes you right back. Strange? Verily.
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.
