Cyberhugs - the way to go for busy parents

This can only come from Singapore, a country, that is plagued by low birthrates, as the parents rather embark on career planning over family planning.

Here scientists look for ways to transmit a sense of touch over the Internet. To do so, they developed a vibration jacket for chicken and plan to expand the tool as pyjama for children.

This pyjama suit "would use the Internet to adjust changes in pressure and temperature to simulate the feeling of being hugged. Parents wearing a similar suit could be "hugged" back by their children."

I rather prefer the real thing, honestly.
