Protesters of the world can breathe a sigh of relief... Little Brother is here to help.

This cutesy, pint-sized robot is the brain(washing) child of Contestational Robotics, a robotics initiative which aims to aid the "autonomy" of social activists.

Little Brother distributes his propaganda literature to passers by who are either captivated by his adorable appearance, the fact that he's a robot, or that he's giving out free stuff. LB's creators designed his appearance to reflect a stylised robot aesthetic, whilst keeping him cute to rope in the grannies.
