Blubber Bots are nearly as cute as giant baby chicks
“Excuse me,” you say to your mobile, “I have to go, because a puffy white plastic cloud just sailed up and is singing to me.” The Blubber Bot cleaved unto you, would-be-phoner, because it loves being part of high-tech communications. Blubber Bots are sociable and cheery, a body of networked sculptures that interact with their environment, people and each other and evolve the longer they live. You can foster your own Blubber Bot to know the joy of flying-robot-cloud-rearing. $100. [GT]
