You know when you're reading One Day and you feel as if you're just not crying your heart out quite enough?
While we're getting serious 1984 premonitions, we guess it's pretty cool that these lab folk have managed to create a book that you can actually wear.
As you read, the smart book senses what page you are on, changes the lighting and sends signals to a device strapped to your chest which vibrates according to the mood of the characters. Freaky!
"Changes in the protagonist's emotional or physical state trigger discrete feedback in the wearable [vest], whether by changing the heartbeat rate, creating constriction through air pressure bags, or causing localised temperature fluctuations," say the academics behind the technology.
Still can't believe this is for real? Then check out the video below. Will you be investing in one of these?
