Married scientist duo Dzmitry Tsetserukou and Alena Neviarouskaya believe they have created something that replicates human touch while using online communications; it’s called The Cyberhug.
The Cyberhug works by using a network of connected straps resembling a harness. Their prototype is called "iFeel_IM!" which means "I feel therefore I am." When the prototype is attached to a computer, a series of sensors can "mimic several types of heartbeats, tingling down the spine, and the sensation of having butterflies in one’s stomach."
