http://techcrunch.com – Only weirdos enjoy hugs in real life. These people, likely hopped up on some sort of drug or whatnot, actually enjoy the physical embrace of another human being. But that’s gross. The touching, the emotion, the germs. Traditional hugging is just ridiculous in the age of the Internet. It’s obsolete. For the rest of us there’s the Like-A-Hug wearable social media vest. For each “like” you receive on Facebook, this vest inflates a little big, giving the wearer a little squeeze of comfort. Of course this thing isn’t real. Neither is my hatred of a sincere hug. (IT news)
