Emotive Robotic Avatar costs a bomb to keep you entertained

Unless you’re really flush with cash, we wouldn’t recommend the Emotive Robotic Avatar which is but a robotic puppet that is able to convey nuanced emotions, which is in turn controlled by its operator from a remote command center. It will rely on a combination of eye expressions, antenna colors and body language to get its message across, while relying on the digitally modulated voice of its operator in order to express five feelings – happy, confused, angry, sad, and embarrassed. 19 concealed motors will control the puppet’s realistic animated movements, where it has an operating of up to 30 feet away from a computer. All puppets are built to order, so you can be sure that your $65,000 spent will be thoroughly unique. Good luck getting the missus to agree to this though.
