The Hug Vest (March 2012, New York)

The Hug Vest is a wearable thermochromic piece that changes color when touched. When the wearer hugs someone, that impression is tangibilized through the color change and creates a playful interaction. Additional versions of the vest are currently in production for museums, and viewers can photograph the impressions of the vest and upload them on http://www.hugprints.com to create an online community of playful touch.
