Long distance cheek pincher.

So mom can bug you.
  [vote for,

It’s mother’s day. Even though I got mommy a book about perennials … and called her I could tell that what she really wanted was to pinch my cheek to ensure I was healthy.

The long distance cheek pincher is a phone attachment that allows mothers to assess the firmness and healthiness of their children’s cheeks by squeezing a rubber controller. The resistance level of the cheek is conveyed in real-time. Moreover—mother can hear you mutter and squawk in pain when you are pinched by the rubber prongs attached to the phone receiver.

This will help to ease mother’s anxiety—and keep their children feeling cared for (if sheltered) and loved.

hug your chickens, who are wearing pneumatic vests, over the internet http://mixedreality...s/poultry-internet/

       Aw, I though you meant butt-cheek pincher, so executives in less politically-correct countries could exchange pleasantries with those in North America.   

       But now I imagine a miniature, rubber-coated bear trap on the phone receiver... I feel better again.

       [blissmiss] I retract my own rant.   

       love hatmama.

       I'm imagining, for no special reason, a long-distance Dobermann Pinscher on a leash in the form of a curly telephone cord. In case you're feeling cheeky, I'm thinking, "Don't press his buttons".

       I think naughty people might abuse this feature, and put something else in other than cheeks...

       Adrien Cheok, former head of this Mixed Reality Lab, is your man. A real genius, he realized the need for hugging poultry from your desk. see link.

       But your not getting your innoculation of mum's skin culture and the ephemeral poke of her bio-magnetic field.
