What would be a good use for a robot? Cleaning up the house? Doing taxes and balancing checkbooks? Cooking meals for the family?
How about: Playing tic-tac-toe with a terrible young actress while speaking through a bad text-to-speech program? Sign us up!
This thing will actually play tic-tac-toe! Well, it can't place the pieces itself, but it will say where it wants to move. It even has super-advanced* visual sensors to make sure the human opponent doesn't place the piece in the wrong spot.
Furthermore, it tells jokes! Bad jokes! iCat will also recommend music and movies, keep track of your calendar, and act as a companion for a child instead of a real cat or another human. Man, iCat, you be trippin'.
Check out the video of this thing in action over at Gizmodo
*not super advanced.
