Hugms: hugs over SMS

You can't buy this (yet), but Mark Argo's Hugms would be popular today. Another great thesis from ITP, Hugms sends a text message when you squeeze your Bluetooth-connected, light-up sensor. The message varies depending on how hard and how long you squeeze your Hugms. Long squeeze: 'hhhhhhuuuuuuuuuuggggggg'; Short hard squeeze: 'hhHHUUUUUUugg'. Even better, if the recipient of your hug has a Hugms, their own device will glow with light and they can give a squeeze, letting the sender know their hug is being returned.

Group Hug!

From amazing Ann, (also of seeartmakeart) who's getting the demo Hugms in the first picture.
