Finally! A Vest That "Hugs" You Whenever Someone Likes You on Facebook!

Posted by on Fri, Oct 5, 2012 at 2:35 PM

It's the Like-a-Hug vest, "a wearable social media vest that allows for hugs to be given via Facebook, bringing us closer despite physical distance."

What do you think?

One of the signs of the End Times. Looking forward to the Like-a-Buttplug though.

Only the fullest possible implementation of teledildonics would convince me to join Faceplant.

Are you listening, Zuckerberg? Your stock value depends on it.

Remember the day when facebook stalkers couldn't remotely control your clothing?

Right now when I need a hug I put my wiener in the blood-pressure cuff at Rite-Aid.

Yes, it fits. Why do you ask?

I was hoping this was a joke while it was playing. I'm quite sure the stalker/creepster community will go ga-ga for this...

I would like to see two people outfitted in these, one extremely 'popular' face book user and one who is one of those people who try really hard on face book but nobody ever like, acknowledges their posts. Put those two people in a room and just like, watch as the unpopular guy stands there all hunched over and depressed, contemplating suicide as his lifeless vest just hangs there, then the other guy is standing there proud and tall with this vest that is going all bonkers like it's breathing on it's own, all rapid like it just had a killer spin class or something.

Imagine the horror of being slowly suffocated by a barrage of 4chan trolls who've hijacked your hug vest.

I don't know what's sadder, this or that Internet kissing machine they invented in Japan that has the user licking a plastic straw. I guess nobody in Japan has heard the news that kissing is about the lower lip action. Tonsil hockey is for seventh graders--and Japanese, apparently.

This just in, a man is arrested and charged with hug-ass-ault. Two witnesses claimed that he is the one who popped a woman's hug-vest thingy while screaming "demons, kill the demons!!!" He claims to have been "watching out for the mental health of the western world".
