Robotic pets are nothing new. We have covered many cute ones here in the past. The MOFLIN is an AI pet that evolves like an animal. It has a soft fur and makes cute sounds and moves. The robot has a touch sensor, microphone, accelerometers, and Bluetooth connectivity.
MOFLIN uses genetic algorithms to learn and grow, so it will develop a unique personality. It weighs 300g, measuring 16cm. Like what you see? You can find out more about this project on Kickstarter.
