Availabot



I think this idea is an amazing creation of both lateral thinking and innovation.

Read this:
"Availabot is a physical representation of presence in Instant Messenger applications. Availabot plugs into your computer by USB, stands to attention when your chat buddy comes online, and falls down when they go away. It’s a presence-aware, peripheral-vision USB toy… and because the puppets are made in small numbers on a rapid-prototyping machine, it can look just like you."

This whole concept from Shulze & Webb is incredible, I do hope it takes off.
