Well, get ready for Facebook ubiquity to seep into the real world. A clever hardware-hacking project called LikeBelt uses near-field communication technology (NFC) to register Facebook likes as you walk down the street. Just approach a person or thing that deserves liking, and thrust your hips in its — or his, or her — direction.
“There used to be simple ways of saying you like things, like thumbs up, high fives, or humping,” Nathan Martin, CEO of Deeplocal, told Wired.
Yes, you read that correctly: humping. Deeplocal has taken the primitive gesture — arguably, one of nature’s earliest forms of “liking” — and combined it with a wearable piece of technology in the creation of the LikeBelt.
