The Like-A-Hug: A jacket that hugs you when someone Likes your Facebook posts. 

Designed by an MIT student, this ”wearable social media vest” (ugh) is activated by a mobile phone and inflates if a Facebook friend Likes content on the wearer’s wall. And it’s two-way; a hug can be reciprocated to another Like-a-Vest owner by hugging/deflating the vest. According to its creator, Melissa Chow, the idea for the vest arose from discussions about improving long distance relationships with novel and simple telepresence.
