A team of students at Tsukuba University developed The “Riaju Coat” (Fulfillment Coat) so that girlfriendless young men everywhere could experience that warm, fuzzy feeling of his girlfriend hugging him around the waist from behind – using two robotic pincers.
Add some headphones, and the dateless guy hears footsteps running up from behind him. A female voice then says one of the following lines: “I’m sorry. Were you waiting?”; “Watch your back!”; “Guess who?”; or “Blind side!” The synthetic hug follows immediately.
Perhaps the young men would not need to invent a girlfriend if they left the lab occasionally and applied as much energy and ingenuity to meeting a young lady as they did to inventing a fake one.
Isn’t there some way we can introduce the “boyfriend pillow” girls to the “girlfriend coat” guys?
