Cuddle Tech

Line of clothing and implements to interact with digital communication [empathetic email, snuggle for Skype conversations, cradle for phone conversations with your child, a fluffy collar for your private conversation with your loved one] I imagine these devices as assistive design pieces which would not necessarily incorporate technology but reimagine how you interact with the device through which you communicate with people. Could an email sending sympathy be more meaningful if you were able to embrace the computer as you sent it?
