F+R Hugs

F+R Hugs
F+R Hugs is a soft Lycra shirt with embedded sensors and electronics that allows to feel the physical closeness of a distant loved one, bringing the sensation of a hug.

The F+R Hugs system works through a mobile phone network. F+R Hugs shirts receive the input of heart beat, touch and body temperature of the remote loved one, and output it, recreating (through actuators embedded in the shirt) the pulsation, physical pressure, and warmth of a real hug.
