    How To DIY Your Very Own Girlfriend

    Just invent a coat, like these Japanese students. This impressive piece of attire simulates the touch of an actual human woman.

    The coat, which only exists as a prototype, has a belt that makes you feel like you're being hugged from behind.

    The hardware engineer, Hikaru Sugira at the University of Tsukuba, told The Daily Mail, "The concept of this device is everyone can get the feeling of having a girlfriend."

    It can also be hooked up to headphones that play recordings of a female voice saying things that (apparently) a girlfriend might say.

    The example the article gave was "sorry I'm late." Good work, girlfriends.
