back to article Update Facebook by thrusting your hips to, er ... 'Like' things

Seventies throwbacks who like big belt buckles, and pelvic thrusting in public, can now check into a location, or "Like" a friend, with no more than a flick of the hips.

Frottage alert!

Not so much a solution looking for a problem, as a solution inviting a slap round the chops...

So they've spent plenty of time looking for a real use for NFC, all the time it was staring them in the face - somehow link it to Facebook.

This could be fun

I've got an uncle whose dog will dry hump anything from an armchair to an umbrella stand, I reckon that pooch could rack up a million likes per day.

What does this tech make of a jump to the left?

What does this tech make of a jump to the left? Or a step to the right? Does putting my hands on my hips act as a modifier?

DEAR GOD...PLEASE...STOP....!!!

This is just one more POS for an increasingly BRAIN-DEAD bunch of idiots, who have the childish notion that they have to "like" things. Schmuckerberg has managed to dumb-down nearly 1bn people...how sad for the future of this planet.

Can these Lemmings be any more pathetic? No.

But what we really want to know.....

Is whether the belt works with the el Reg forum like button!!

Gives new meaning to "Go hump a post!" :)

(And I don't even want to tell you how you downvote a post using the belt!!)
