Ever hear of the HugShirt?

    I first heard of this thing about five years ago in a Wired magazine. You wear this shirt that has sensors throughout it, and you hug someone. The shirt records the pressure, warmth, etc. of the hug and sends it to your friend who is also wearing a HugShirt and they feel the hug exactly as you do. I have a lot of friends and family spread across the world, and thought that was an awesome idea. However I haven't heard anything since. They had at the time a working prototype but it still hasn't come out, so far as I've been able to find.

    I heard of it a while back as well. But I think can actually buy it now, but doesn't mean I'd want to though.

    It's Bluetooth apparently and pairs with your phone. Be interesting to see how one goes about laundering this electronic garment.
