Probo the Robot


(YouTube link)

Scientists at Vrije University in Brussels, Belgium have developed a robot that looks like a cartoon elephant. Probo has fully articulate features and a flexible trunk that can display a variety of responses and emotions. It was designed as a therapy aid for autistic children. Probo is being tested now at Babes-Bolyai University in Cluj, Romania, where the team has reportedly achieved some remarkable results so far in interactions with autistic children. http://www.romaniantimes.at/news/Around_the_World/2011-01-09/12521/Robot_Elephant_Offers_Hope_to_Autistic_Kids to story.
