okay but you remember the laptop persocoms in Chobits

what if I made one

@InspectorCaracal I've always been a gadget person and just. A small assistant robot is like the GOAL of tech imo. Well that and like saving lives and shit.

@c0debabe for real though I'm not an expert or even competent hobbyist with robotics but the field is advanced enough that I feel like a low physical function robotic doll that avoids being creepy is doable at the hobbyist level, and if I can pull that off, maybe I could get someone to help improve it... I think I'm going to do some actual research.

give it minor robotics for gestures, voice recognition and dictation, use a Vocaloid synth set for the speech, a USB port in one ear and an HDMI or such in the other
