Squeeze, and the Frebble will transmit that squeeze to your significant other who may be miles or continents away. It’s the latest in a string of gadgets that attempt to make the most out of long-distance relationships, whether it’s between lovers, friends, or family.
Frebble is a device that basically looks like a modified joystick of sorts. You’re supposed to hold it and give it a squeeze to send that reassuring squeeze to the person on the other end, who should have the other Frebble in the set. The Frebble’s built-in haptic technology makes it possible as it was designed to imitate the feeling of hand-holding.
While it might not feel like a human hand, the fact that it can transmit those squeezes in real-time should do for most people.
Frebble is currently up for funding on Kickstarter, where a pair of these devices require a minimum pledge of at least $99(USD).
