MIT researchers have invented a jacket that gives users a hug whenever they get a ‘Like’ on Facebook. Next time you’re dreaming up ways to make the users of your apps feel loved and wanted, think a little more wildly. How about giving them an actual hug?
That’s what Melissa Chow and her colleagues Andy Payne and Phil Seaton at MIT have come up with – a jacket that hugs the wearer when one of their friends ‘likes’ one of their posts on Facebook.
Needs underpants version.
