Give me a hand

Do I detect the hand (hoho) of Dr. Strabismus (whom God Preserve) of Utrecht in the Telegraph?
Scientists have developed a means of shaking hands across continents. Using the internet, the new technology can transmit such properties as grip, movement, even skin texture - everything, in fact, but actual physical contact.

A device that allows computer users to "feel" things online means that old friends thousands of miles apart could shake hands for the first time in years.

As for me, there are few throats I would like to get at if this becomes generally available.
