Like hugs? Like Facebook? Like getting Likes? Try this on…
The Like-A-Hug vest responds by inflating, providing the gentle embrace like that of a hug, when someone “likes” a photo or status update on your Facebook wall. Yes, this vest hugs you. The vest is interactive too, if the sender of the “like” that hugged you also has a Like-A-Hug vest, then you can return the hug by squeezing your vest in return, which also deflates it. The person on the other end gets a “hug” as well.
Of course, this brings up all sorts of options for people. Why touch someone else to hug them? Just log-on and send “likes” to your friend’s accounts and enter into a vicious, endless “hug” circle with your jackets. This would be just the trick for someone that needs to know that their status updates are “liked” all the time. On the other hand, there are a lot of people that might run into problems with a product like this, such as famous people who would receive thousands of “likes”…er…hugs per day.

wtf is this? This makes society more stupid. This almost as bad as the Share and Like for Africa Children and Ignore if you love the devil crap.

I wish they'd develop a jacket that monitors your Facebook page, and after your second or third meaningless or self important post about how you're going to the market for chicken or some such in a day, it would plunge blades into your heart.

I delete people off my Facebook who continue to bite into the obvious and pathetic attention whoring attempts with their "like/share/comment" BS. Its just idiots trying to get notice and its annoying to see on my news feed.

Facebook is a fakebook. Real hungs and kisses makes us a,real man. Who needs this crap? This is for "socially active" people on internet. Surely not for me.

Think of the possibilities! You can use it as a flotation device or hit a panic button so it puffs up when you feel threatened ;D
