Just found out about this, even through the video is about two years old, I just had to show you guys this. I hope no one posted anything on this here before.
From the youtube video description,
At CES 2011, Fujitsu’s Paul Moore talks about their concept teddy bear, which includes a webcam in its nose and has a bunch of sensors that can react to objects around it. Aimed at an aging population in Japan, the robot bear at first seems creepy, but when it waves back at you, it will melt your heart.
Robot Teddy Bear by Fujitsu (2011)
It’s a real-life version of the teddy bear from A.I. — complete with a webcam in its nose. That couldn’t possibly lead to embarrassment.
I wonder what become of this thing. I haven’t seen anything written on it post 2011. I’d be interested to hear whether or not they’re selling this thing in Japan yet.
