Totally Geeky or Geek Chic? The Hug Shirt

Hug Shirt is a wearable Bluetooth accessory for your mobile phone that allows users to exchange the physical sensation of being hugged through telecommunication networks. The shirt contains embedded sensors that feel the strength of the touch, the skin warmth and the heartbeat rate of the sender and actuators that recreate the sensation of touch and warmth.

Created by CuteCircuit, the Hug Shirt made Time Magazine's Top Inventions of All Time list in 2006. The question is, is it chic?

I didn't get chic or creepy from it -- I thought it was kind of sweet. :) Who says long-distance relationships can't work now?

I say freaky. The world is starting to remind me of the cyberpunk sf I read back in my college days.
