I just read this article about scientists developing cyberhug...
Sounds weird but the concept is that computers can do such by using electrical sensors. This I guess would be perfect for those who are miles apart, and cyberhugs can potentially bridge the distance.

Here's the full article. Scientists develop the 'cyberhug'

If this is for real, I'd like to give you all a very warm hug..
I wonder, would there be a cyberkiss too?

and let the hugging begin....


  1. HUH. That's interesting. I kinda like the idea, it would be really cool for people who are far away from their loved ones. (Parents who can't be with their kid at the moment, long distance relationships, etc.)

    But at the same time, I don't think it could replace and ACTUAL hugs. Those are my favorite. :)

  2. You're right Emmy, nothing really beats the real thing. Those are my fave too...
