If you’re looking for a little companionship, and aren’t too picky about it being an organic life form, check out the Synergy Swan by R.Bot ($450). The Synergy Swan is a telepresence or automated interaction robot that uses an Android based device as its face and camera. Telepresence simply means, the ability to interact with your environment as if you were actually present. Here is a [video_lightbox_youtube video_id=S5LKXO9aCTc width=640 height=480 anchor=clip] from the TV show “The Big Bang Theory” showing telepresence in action. Automated interaction simply means the Synergy Swan will complete an action based on your reaction. For example, playing a video or start talking. At $450 you can’t beat the price. R.Bot also has a smaller stationary version for $250.
About Lee King
I live in a great city outside of Philadelphia and run Muted in my free time. Being close to a number of large metropolitan areas gives me a lot of inspiration for menswear and gear. Originally from Pittsburgh as well as a Suburban Detroit transplant I went to Michigan State University and spent most of my career managing global IT services for Pharmaceuticals. Besides mens clothing I enjoy, bonsai, my family, dogs and hanging by the pool.
