The HugShirt - PREORDER
The Hug Shirt™ allows you to send hugs over distance! This world’s first haptic telecommunication wearable was invented by CuteCircuit in 2002 and awarded as one of the Best Inventions of the Year by Time Magazine in 2006. The new Hug Shirt™ features highlighted sensor areas similar to the original design but in a cutting edge digital print design.
Embedded in the Hug Shirt™ there are sensors that capture the strength, duration, and location of the touch and actuators that recreate the sensation of touch, and the emotion of the hug to the Hug Shirt™ of your loved ones.

The Hug Shirt™ connects Bluetooth to your smartphone thanks to the Q App and records a hug in the same way you would record a movie, it then delivers the data to your mobile via Bluetooth and through the App your hug is transmitted over the network to your friend’s phone and it is seamlessly transmitted via Bluetooth to their Hug Shirt™!
Sending hugs is as easy as sending a text message or chatting, and you are able to send hugs while you are on the move, in the same way and to the same places you are able to make phone calls (Rome to Tokyo or New York to Paris).
If you do not have a Hug Shirt™ but know that your friend has one you can still send them a hug creating it with the Q App and it will be delivered to your friend’s Hug Shirt™ in real time!
We continue to evolve the HugShirt and create new designs every season. To see the latest embodiment of the HugShirt you can also check out the SoundShirt product page and discover how haptics allow a deaf person to feel music on their skin, the SoundShirt has a higher amount of actuators to reflect the depth of the music.
Download the Q by CuteCircuit App from the App Store and easily control your Hug Shirt™ with your smartphone via Bluetooth Smart.
