Friend 4 is a desktop robot that you can pat and vibrates with haptic LRA. It creates a car like purring sensation without needing a cat.
Friend 4 is part of the Making Friends by Making them series, where I provide all the 3D printing files and instructions for you to assemble and program you own friend.
The idea is to “make a friend” in a different way. How would you program a friendship? What kind of interaction would you program it to have? By answer those questions, we might just reveal more about ourselves.
