Have you heard about the new tech-savvy Facebook Vest that hugs you?

I think it's just plain creepy, but who am I to judge, right?

This new product: " Like-A-Hug", according to the designer and MIT student Melissa Chow,  is a "wearable social media vest that allows for hugs to be given via Facebook, bringing us closer despite physical distance.”

In other words when someone “likes” something on your profile, while your wearing this vest it will inflate and squeeze you to simulate a hug!

All you have to do is squeeze the vest in return, and the initiating party will get hugged back.

I don't know about you but I would feel like I was in some creepy episode of Ghost if my clothes started getting intimate with me!

I think it's sad that the average American gets so little support from their friends and family in person that they become reliant on Facebook for validation.
