Everybody needs a friend, so if you can't get any warm bodies to talk with you and laugh at your jokes, why not build yourself a Robofriend? Robofriends are cheaper than real friends, and easy to make with off the shelf components, so they're hard not to love. Sure you'll need a little bit of programming knowledge to get the camera, microphone, speakers, speech control, WiFi control, and display all working together to navigate obstacles and put on a happy face, but the creator of this friendly bot has put together a nice tutorial to help you do just that.
