Budweiser has unveiled a “Buddy Cup”: a beer glass that connects to Facebook via a built-in chip.
Created by Agencia Africa in partnership with Bolha, a digital innovation studio in Sao Paulo, the glass works by instantly making people friends on Facebook when they toast using the beer glass.
Like-A-Hug is a wearable social media vest that allows for hugs to be given via Facebook, bringing us closer despite physical distance. The vest inflates when friends ‘Like’ a photo, video, or status update on the wearer’s wall, thereby allowing us to feel the warmth, encouragement, support, or love that we feel when we receive hugs. Hugs can also be sent back to the original sender by squeezing the vest and deflating it.
