Japan has invented a robot that hugs you

Meet the Sense-Roid, our future robot overlord. Hugging the human race into subservience.

And it’s pretty terrifying.

The “Sense-Roid”, as it’s being called, connects to a jacket worn by the human user that replicates the embrace of a human hug with the help of air compressors.
 
Like getting a hug from Skynet.

But you also have to wear this spiffy hug jacket:

The illusion of a mutual hug with the half-humanoid is enhanced by artificial muscles and vibrating devices in the tactile jacket.

I could really use a hug right now. Where did I put my tactile jacket?
