The Hug Shirt™ is a shirt that makes people send hugs over distance! The HugShirt was invented by Francesca Rosella and Ryan Genz the co-founders of CuteCircuit.

Embedded in the shirt there are sensors that feel the strength of the touch, the skin warmth and the heartbeat rate of the sender and actuators that recreate the sensation of touch, warmth and emotion of the hug to the shirt of the distant loved one. The Hug Shirt™ is a Bluetooth accessory for Java enabled mobile phones. The Hug Shirt™s don’t have any assigned phone number, all the data goes from the sensors Bluetooth to the mobile phone.

The Hug Shirt™ has been awarded as one of the Best Inventions of the Year by Time Magazine.
