+ - How to Hug a Chicken Via the Internet->

the_newsbeagle writes: Adrian Cheok, a professor of electrical engineering in Japan, wants to invent a "multisensory Internet" that will transmit not just information, but also experiences. To usher in this new age, he started by building a haptic system that enabled him to send a hug to a chicken via the Internet.

Lately he's begun working on sending a taste over the internet with his "digital lollypop" project.
