Again, good for homeland security!

Remember my last post, making fun of homeland security mentions? How about this one....
Remote haptic interaction could allow people who are allergic to dogs and cats to caress their pets remotely. Used in zoos, it may allow visitors to pat a lion or scratch a bear. A security officer could remotely and silently signal a dog wearing a haptic suit, giving the animal instructions by simply touching it, which could be useful in rescue work or homeland security applications.
Ahh yeah. Remotely petting chickens and fighting the terrorists. All things connected.
