Quasi Goes Commercial
Hammacher Schlemmer always does top of the line and the 54" tall Emotive Robotic Avatar is no exception. He can show that show he is happy, confused, angry, sad, or embarrassed with his eyes, body language and antenna colors. Controlled by an included tablet PC, a microphone and pinhole camera lets the operator keep track of what the emotional bot sees and 19 motors control his movement. The built-to-order aluminum robot can respond to questions. Our first would be, "Where are we going to get the $65,000 to pay for you?"
By the way, for those of you that think he looks familiar, this is Carnegie Mellon's Quasi, first developed in 2005.
