Well, internet surfers, it’s finally happened. You can now really reach out and touch someone. The cool people at Chinese University have created a robotic hand that will afford you the sense of touch as you surf.
Sensors placed on your arm will imitate your hand movements and the strength of your touch for the party on the other end who will also be sporting one. The inventors say users will now beable to “touch” distant relatives, social media dorks will be able to shake hands and flash each other peace signs and the one finger salute (yay!), and physical therapists may soon have the ability to assess the strength and range of movement of their patients from afar.
Of course, we know what it will really be used for, don’t we? That’s right- porn! No longer will you be encumbered by having to pleasure yourself. No, now someone else can do it for you through the wonder of technology!
