Artificial intelligence in a stuffed bear
TJ Bearytales is an animatronic toy from 2005 who plays stories from special cartridges. We want to transform him into an AI powered bear who can tell infinite stories and interact with voice input.
We'll be examining how TJ accomplishes so much motion (especially compared to other bears) and how to interact with his motors and sensors. We'll also explore software for giving him new thoughts and a new voice.
