I can`t decide if these little fellows are cute or scary. They are called MuuSocial. I am not sure who the manufacturers are, I think they are being developed by Advanced Telecommunication Research Institute International. While many researchers into home robots have spent a lot of time in either making their robots as clever as possible or a physically advanced as possible, these researchers have taken a different tack. As far as they are concerned, the home robot of the future is about providing a friendly and intuitive interface between the human and the myriad networked systems in the home. The key to natural and effortless communication between man and machine relies on humans being able to relate to the machine on an emotional level. And MuuSocial is being developed with that end in mind, kind of like an emotionally intelligent network hub.
