Send your love with a Hug Shirt

The Hug Shirt, for love from a distance.
The Hug Shirt, for love from a distance. Lost at E Minor

THE rather brilliant invention of Francesca Rosella and Ryan Genz, the Hug Shirt allows people to send hugs from a distance.

Using sensors embedded in the shirt ‘that feel the strength of the touch, the skin warmth and the heartbeat rate of the sender’, the Hug Shirt then employs ‘actuators that recreate the sensation of touch, warmth and emotion of the hug to the shirt of the distant loved one’.
