Robot Phone Hugs You While You Talk To Friends And Family
Hugvie is the phone that hugs you while you talk so you don’t feel so alone.
The Hugvie is a pillow-like robot shaped in a minimal, genderless human form and featuring a pocket to hold your mobile phone. The device includes a microcontroller and vibrators that are designed to match the characteristics of the caller’s voice, “so people can have a richer communication experience when talking on the phone with loved ones,” according to a report on DigInfo.
The vibrators pulse at the same rate as a human heartbeat, and the vibrations will speed up or slow down based on the tone of the caller’s voice.
