Maybe the strangest robotics R+D project ever?
The first robot built to intentionally be kind of useless.
A real custom social robot that lived in our office for 3 months. Needybot was designed with some intrinsic personality traits and goals around meeting as many people as possible. Needybot’s success depended on garnering empathy & care from humans.
