Philips' iCat has 13 electric motors that move the eyes, eyebrows, eyelids, mouth and head to produce various emotional responses. So now you can have an anthropomorphic cat that won't smell or rub up against your leg.

The iCat Research Platform is a research platform for studying human-robot interaction. It consists of a user-interface robot called iCat, the Open Platform for Personal Robotics ('OPPR') software, and this website for supporting an iCat Research Community.
