The Frebble is an ingenious new device that helps loved ones experience the sensation of squeezing each other's hands even if they are far away from each other.

The Frebble is a hook-shaped contraption that the users holds in his or her while chatting with a loved one over video. The device detects squeezes, and applies the pressure on the back side of the other user's device, simulating the feeling of holding hands.

Each Frebble is equipped with a pair of pressure sensors and two vibrating motors that work to enhance feedback. Bluetooth capability allows it to connect to computers wirelessly.

The developers of Frebble have taken to the crowdfunding website Kickstarter to fund the production and distribution of the device. Stats for Intimacy-Providing Gadgets Trending: Older & Buzzing
