But something about this description of the Hug Shirt simultaneously creeped me out and brought a bit of a tear to my eye: “When a friend sends you a virtual hug, your cell phone notifies the shirt wirelessly, via Bluetooth and then the next thing you know is that the shirt re-creates that person’s distinctive cuddle, replicating his or her warmth, pressure, duration and even heartbeat. And, yes, the Hug Shirt is fully washable.” In case you need to get any misdirected-text-message cooties off of you, no doubt. [LIFT]

    Surely some silly emo band out there will try and utilize these shirts in the next iteration of their mobile strategy, right? THERE’S YOUR MUSIC CONNECTION.

    If you wore it backwards would it be a spoon shirt?

    @maura:
    1. Cut a hole in the box.

    2. Put your junk in that box….

  7. Latelty, i’ve read that the lenses could help people with diabetes keep track of their glucose levels non-invasively. Is that true?
