The system is composed of a lay figure with tactile sensors to detect the user's caressing motion, and a tactile jacket with vibrators and artificial muscles to reflect the caressing motion to the user. As a result, users caress themselves through our Sense-Roid. We believe that this self-caressing experience will enlighten people about the value of caressing.
God, whatever happened to crossing your arms around you chest and facing a bank of lockers so everyone thinks you're making out with someone else? I used to do that all the time in middle school. Unfortunately, in the meantime I've grown into a frigid-cold person and really don't wanna hug myself anymore. Get it? Because I might cut myself on a nip. I've got like permanent 9's on the Mohs hardness scale over here! *spit-polishing*
Hit the jump for two very sad videos. Watch the second shorter one for a dude who is like, waaaaaaay into it.
Thanks to Kristi, who knows the importance of receiving at least 8-9 hugs a day and the importance it plays in one's feeling of well-being. Give it to me straight, Kristi -- what's the equivalent in wrapping myself in a towel and crying on the bathroom floor. An hour? I can do an hour.
