Inspired by the Surrealist drawing game of “exquisite corpse,” the site allows anyone to start an animation tree by drawing a series of short frames — a “seed” — or add on to an existing tree.

Check out some popular trees here and here and here.

Nubot is a doll ready to host smartphone video chats via Skype.
The remote user can control the doll’s body gestures (wave, bow, turn) giving them more of a physical presence.
The folks at Nuuo that developed Nubot use it to have teleconferences between their offices.
We’ve seen a more mobile, albeit less cute, telepresence robot named Texai in the past.
