Need a Warm Hug? Get One from the Hug Light and Brighten Up

by Hazel Chua

There’s no doubt about it. Technology plays a huge role in most people’s lives. In fact, I know a lot of people who regard their gadgets as more than just inanimate objects. Sounds pretty weird, but it’s true and it’s manifested in some of the concept designs we’ve seen in the past, like the HeartBeat mobile phone, and the present, like this Hug Light concept.

Hug LightIt’s basically a lantern of sorts that illuminates and heats up, so humans can hug away and feel like they’re hugging another living thing. Well, sort of.

A more practical and sound use for it, though, is pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS) relief. Some women get pretty nasty cramps when that time of month rolls around, and holding something warm against the abdomen can provide relief and soothe the discomfort until it goes away.

A quick twist of the entire top of the lamp will turn it on or off conveniently. The Hug Light is a concept design by Park Jinmi and Kwak Jinsub.
