When your cell phone rings this little robot squirrel (depending if you’re there) will answer the phone, forward it, or take a message. The Maker, Stefan Marti writes – “Current mobile communication devices do not grab our attention in a socially appropriate way. They could be disrespectful of ongoing social activity such as an important meeting or private dinner. To improve on this, I have built the Cellular Squirrel, a system where the agent that controls my cellphone is embodied in a small portable animatronic device, as a personal ‘companion’ for the user.” [via] Link.
