With the holiday season just round the corner, its time to stack up your gift list with some innovative toys. If you want to add a dash of robotic puppetry, get your hands on the Emotive Robotic Avatar from Hammacher Schlemmer. What makes this one special is that it can express emotions using a remote control from as far as 30 meters away. It can express as many as five feelings using its 19 concealed motors, which include happiness, confusion, anger, sadness, and embarrassment. The set features a tablet’s screen with a stylus to feed in the desired emotion. The puppet shoes emotions with fully bright green eyes, his buoyant antenna and an upright torso to express happiness or half-filled blue-colored eyes, a slumped torso and a slumped head to show sadness. The robot is priced at $65,000 a piece.
