The hugging jacket is great way to alleviate the unnecessary stresses of life.

The ‘TJacket’ hugging jacket, which was created by James Teh, is a jacket that simulates the feeling of a hug. The concept may seem odd, but a hug is very powerful facet of human interaction. The jacket monitors the stress levels of the wearer and sends data to a smart phone. The hug simulation is created by air pockets inside the jacket. Users have the option of choosing from various levels of hug pressures.

The hugging jacket was originally created for children with Autism and ADHD, but adults could also use the jacket. The feeling of a hug is great sensation—who could say no to a nice hug?
