Watch a clip from Tokyo’s 3D Expo

Nobuhiro Takahashi and his team at the University of Electro Communications in Tokyo have created a huggable robot. The ¨Sense-Roid¨ is shaped like a human torso that is embedded with pressure sensors. The robot is capable of reciprocating a human’s hug with the help of air compressors by being connected to a jacket that is worn by the human user.
