Do you wanna touch...

Finally, the tactile senses are no longer out of reach for computers. That's right, new technology that has been tested on chickens (don't ask me why they chose poultry for test subjects) will soon allow their human overlords the ability to touch other humans across the vast internet. And I can't wait to hear complains about the potential for hackers to manhandle unsuspecting users. Of course, you can always restrict the suit to less intimate body parts. On the other hand, maybe cybersex will finally be sexy (especially for the less imaginative among us). That said, a brave new world of sexual harassment laws awaits us on the horizon.
