This is the single most genius thing I've ever seen

http://web.media.mit.edu/~stefanm/phd/cellularsquirrel/

The basis for this is genius in it's purest form. I want one, with a few generational improvments.

Basicly, if this sort of thing were to take off, I'd expect to see a familar type version that followed you around, or perched on your body and acted as a socialy accpetable interface between you and long range communication systems.

When I finished playing the first KOTOR, I was baffled that the game simply ended; momentarily, I expected the final cinematic to fade out and then return me to wandering around the universe having adventures. It would have felt so natural. That was a glimpse of the future of videogames, just a tease, but there's more to come.

Right. I can just see a board meeting and all these men in suits put their squirrels on the table in front of them.

Sorry, its a stupid idea.

It's really not, it's just that robotics are too large currently to make the size small enough to be usable daily.

Imagin if it was a small flying humanoid. Then could you imagin it?

I can.

I can see it. Personal Assistants with the ability to actually think. Sort of like the hologram assistant in the movies.
