Description
Huggy Pajama is a wearable system aimed at promoting physical interaction in remote communication between parent and child. This system enables parent and child to hug one another through a hugging interface device and a wearable, hug reproducing jacket which are connected through the Internet. The input device is a doll with an embedded pressure sensing circuit that sends ‘hug’ signals to a haptic jacket that is equipped with air pocket actuators, heating elements, and a color changing display.
