Heart Robot loves to be hugged, express emotions

da Engadget di Darren Murph

Filed under: Here’s
your afternoon dose of cuteness, ready or not. David McGoran’s Heart
Robot has made its way into London’s Science Museum, and for good
reason. This intelligent robot not only possesses a face with moving
eyes and an external heart that blinks depending on what’s happening,
but it actually encourages people to hug and cuddle it like a real
human. Seen as being "among the first robots to signify a new era of emotional machines
used for medical treatment and enjoyment," this creature could one day
become a mainstay in nursing homes where the elderly could interact
with it and hopefully benefit in some metaphysical manner. Check out
the read link for a video oozing with adorableness.
