When you think of robots, you probably envision one that will do tasks for you so that you don’t have to, not one that will just remind you that they have the capacity to be smarter than us and may someday overthrow humanity. But if you happen to be in that second camp, check out the Professor Einstein Robot.
This bot is a chat bot come to life. Its primary function is to chat with you, share his passions, and regale you with facts and trivia about science. He walks, he talks and will also listen to you and give you real reactions to your question. He has voice recognition and artificial intelligence, make of that what you will.
The Professor will also play brain and memory games with you to help you keep all that gray matter in perfect shape. The games get harder as you learn more and one would assume he learns more. You can buy this little friendship and time waster for $249.
