Hi Floyd,

Could you tell us a bit about the ideas and intent motivating your work? Also, what has your research revealed about other similar projects?

I realize that this is a technical response, but have you thought of
muscle wire.  Yes, it does get hot, but you could insulate for that, and
it could have the benefit of creating warmth in the hug. It takes
electricity (simplifying interfacing, and has a relatively low latency
time (surely less than the air transfer), and it's silent.

Just an idea.
