Science Has Finally Created a Machine That Gives Hugs

For millennia, man has sought to find an answer to the one big question: Can anybody give me a hug? And now, at long last, sculptor Petri Eskelinen has provided a definitive solution, in the form of an interactive sculpture that hugs people back when they hug it. From the accompanying video, it does not look like the warmest nor the most comforting of hugs, but since this is first hugging sculpture we're going to have no choice but to let it slide, and also get to work on building our own version.
