Touch is critically important for close relationships. It is through touching that we bond and form attachments (see, forming attachments). Two new applications are allowing couples to create the sensation of touch without being physically present.
One smart phone application, called Couple, allows romantic partners to connect through a feature, which allows for simultaneous tactical sensation (i.e., both phones vibrate at the same time).
Durex is now coming out with vibrating underwear so that you can touch your partner from afar.
Touch is critical for your well being.
Interesting to watch how companies are creating products that address this fundamental human need.
