Hugive – a robot with a heartbeat

9. Hugvie

Hugvie is a plushy, pillow shaped doll that looks like some sort of hybrid between a human and this glow worm toy. Hugvie it designed to offer a real-life presence during a phone call with a loved one who cannot be with you in person. Hugvie was created to live up to its name sake and give great, comforting hugs, which is most likely why the inventor thought it would be a great idea to give it a human heartbeat. You know, for authenticity and all that. To use it, all you need to do is put your phone in the pocket in its head and start hugging it as you speak to your loved one.
