Remember the classic “Star Trek” episode called The Trouble with Tribbles? Well we may be seeing a real life version of them because there is a new product out that seriously reminds us of the furry little guys. Soon these are sure to be everywhere because they’re pretty cute and useful too.
They are calling it a Moflin and it was created to be an emotional support pet. This pet would be great for kids who have a hard time with their emotions or adults who want a companion. They don’t specifically say on their site but I would gather that it would help a lot of kids with autism and elderly adults who may be lonely. The AI pet can also be taken anywhere since its small and computerized.
Always together. An AI Pet Robot that’s just like a real animal. MOFLIN is an AI Pet created from a totally new concept. It possesses emotional capabilities that evolve like living animals. With its warm soft fur, cute sounds, and adorable movement, you’d want to love it forever. We took a nature inspired approach and developed a unique algorithm that allows MOFLIN to learn and grow by constantly using its interactions to determine patterns and evaluate its surroundings from its sensors. MOFLIN will choose from an infinite number of mobile and sound pattern combinations to respond and express its feelings. To put it in simple terms, it’s like you’re interacting with a living pet.MOFLIN YouTube
Created by Vanguard Industries Inc. they put up a Kickstarter for the fuzzy little guy. The pet has an emotional roadmap and it will show it’s feelings to you and keep you company when you’re dealing with difficult feelings yourself. You can check out the Kickstarter by clicking the link here.
