Level-5, a Japanese video game company, has partnered up with Otome Yusha to make boyfriend hug speakers. Its a strange new product that features two muscular arms that you can wrap neatly around yourself, and a white pillow decorated with a photo of a video game character the protagonist from the companys latest release, Hero of Maidens. To make your experience even more intimate, the arms have built-in Bluetooth speakers which play music as you cuddle up together.
Hero of Maidens is a role-playing game, which is targeted at women about beautiful men who intend to save the world through love and the boyfriend speakers are part of the promotion for the release. The product isnt just good for hugs, you can also bring it along to a café and perch the product on top of a table for an intimate date.
Unfortunately, there is only one set and its not for sale but you could win it. Otome Yusha is running a Twitter competition until August 9, which will see one lucky person getting their hands on a hugging machine.
