iFeel_IM Adds Touch To Internet Communication

Priced at €20 per hand and released at The International Technology Expo in Hong Kong, the iFeel_IM allows users to “touch” the person they are talking to. Of course it’s not the actual hand of the person, but rather a robotic accessory connected to the computer.

This is for primarily long-distant relationships or long-distant business meetings. For example, if you wanted to hold your partners hand in sympathy or shake your new boss’s hand, you can soon! The robotic hand is expected to be on the market by Christmas time. The hands pressure is the same as any normal human, so it should deliver the same message as a normal handshake or hand-grasp.
