A trio from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has developed a way for Facebook friends to receive hugs every time a Facebook friend likes your posts.

CNET reports the "Like-A-Hug vest" inflates when a friend likes your photo, video or status update. You can also send a hub back to your friend by deflating the vest hugging.

The vest was developed by Melissa Chow, Andy Payne, and Phil Seaton at the MIT Media Lab.
