The Kid Should See This

Anthropomorphism in Robots

The Verge reports on Anthropomorphism in Robots at the 2014 International CES (Consumer Electronics Show). Anthropomorphism, or personification, occurs when inanimate objects, animals, or things in nature are given human qualities.

There are more robots and more anthropomorphic examples in the archives, including eyebombing, the animated short Omelettethe Otamatone Jumbo, and one of our favorites: Cloudy.
