None of them can compete with this tiny robotic Albert Einstein.The project page claims Professor Einstein is everything you ever wanted in a personal robot. That’s assuming that you want a robot that can hold an enlightened conversation with you, teach you all kinds of great science-y stuff, help you keep your schedule organized, and even give your brain a workout with challenging puzzles and games.He’s edutain… tional! That’s a thing, right? Professor Einstein is sort of like having Google Home, or Amazon’s Echo shoved into a delightful little animatronic genius that lives right on your desk… which sounds like a pretty sweet — and very geeky — combination.Oh, and perhaps the most important thing of all… Yes, he does stick his tongue out like Einstein did for that unforgettable photo. Hopefully they tweak his expression so the eyes stay open:There’s also a companion app called Stein-O-Matic that Professor Einstein will be more than happy to guide you through. His creators at Hanson Robotics have already created a wide array of learning and recreational activities for it, and they plan to offer up additional fun and games (and educational goodies, too) as time goes on via a cloud-based service.
