If you've ever felt a 'like' on Facebook wasn't quite real enough, a US designer has unveiled a jacket that hugs the wearer every time they receive one.

Designed by MIT student Melissa Chow, the 'Like-A-Hug' is a wearable social media vest that allows for hugs to be given via Facebook, bringing us closer despite physical distance.

The vest inflates when friends 'Like' a photo, video, or status update on the wearer's wall.

I would only buy this jacket if it is made by 'North Face' or 'Memebers Only'. Heck, if I'm gonna be hipster I'm going all the way! :D

This was my first reaction as well.  We separate ourselves from other people to spend time in the cyber world and then the deficit of human contact drives us to seek artificial human contact?  WTH?!?

  We've cast the world, we've set the stage,
  for what could be, the darkest age...
