BlabDroid is a surrogate robot avatar and a remote controlled buddy, programmable to contain your voice, ideas, questions, personality, or the downloadable personalities of others. It can film, entertain, and educate with quizzes, games and surprising interviews. The data BlabDroid users record can be shared on the BlabDroid website to reveal new similarities, differences, and aspects of the human condition, thus making BlabDroid more than just a fun robot friend, but also a tool by which to know and understand ourselves and others. BlabDroid is based off the Boxie robot research from MIT.
