Best of all, if you love it, MOFLIN can learn to love you back and become emotionally attached to you.

Life-like movements of a real animal

MOFLIN is capable of showing its emotions through an algorithm that changes based on the feedback from the on-board sensors. These include touch sensors, microphones, and accelerometers with gyroscopes. This means that the pet can adjust its mood and movement based on information received by its surroundings. In fact, MOFLIN can recognize different people based on how they interact with it. And it’ll respond with movements, cute sounds, and noises inspired by real animals.

Each MOFLIN will have a unique personality

Although every MOFLIN might look the same, it certainly won’t act the same. It’ll develop an individualist personality that mirrors its owner, and it’ll develop over time, based on its environment and interactions. Its personality and mannerisms become a result of its owner’s care. In fact, it can relate back emotions including being anxious, happy, excited, calm, and more.

When it’s time for MOFLIN to rest, using the wireless charging basket. And this smart robot will continue to move, breathe, and make sounds while recharging. In addition, this pet robot features Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity. It’ll also come with an app for iOS and Android, although the company hasn’t released any information on the app’s capabilities at the moment.

It’s anticipated that MOFLIN will start making its way to owners in June 2021, and it’ll cost around $400. Are you onboard to purchase this realistic pet? Share your thoughts in the comments.
