Happy Monday: Meet Keepon
This is brilliant. The clip is of a robot named Keepon dancing to a track by Spoon. From the inventor’s website..’We are currently developing and studying dance-oriented nonverbal play with between children and the robot Keepon, designed and built by Hideki Kozima. Keepon is a small creature-like robot developed to perform emotional and attentional interaction with children. It has four degrees of freedom, a soft rubber skin, two cameras in its eyes, and a microphone in its nose’
TOTES reminds me of that toy…. ARRRGH. Can’t remember what it’s called.
Faux-million dollar question of the day:
What was that toy/plush that came out in the late 80’s early 90’s that danced ONLY when the music was on– They had Mickey, Minnie, Tigger, etc editions. The commercial featured 5/6 year olds dancing to a teeny bopper song.
