Anyone that has to spend time away from their family, young ones or loved ones might interested in a new device called the Frebble, which has been designed to enable you to hold hands with someone else through the Internet.
The Frebble device is a wireless accessory that is held by each person wishing to hold hands, when one person squeezes the device the other person feels that squeeze instantaneously allowing for a more intimate online connection.
The Frebble system can be used with Skype, the Frebble companion application or Apple’s FaceTime communication system and has been designed to simulate the feeling of holding hands.
“While there are many ways to see and hear your loved ones through the power of the internet, the tactile element has been missing – until now. With Frebble, you can cut through the distance and share that smallest gesture – the squeeze of the hand – that means so much.
Connect to your loved ones through the squeeze of a hand, no matter where they are in the world. When you hold a Frebble device in your hand and squeeze it, your loved one will feel your reassuring touch in real time through their Frebble – no matter where you are talking to them from. Frebble is designed to fit perfectly in your hand and simulate the touch of holding and squeezing another person’s hand, and having that feeling reciprocated.”
The Frebble project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production.
So if you think Frebble is something your family would enjoy to hold hands, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help Frebble become a reality, with prices starting at just $99.
