Robert graduated from MIT with a degree in Computer Science and Engineering in the Spring of 2007. He works on the Huggable project, ever increasing the bear's furriness through his software skills. His main interests lie in user interface design, be it computer-human or robot-human. He is currently a research assistant studying the viability of using the Huggable project as an educational platform for the education of children by evaluating its ability for a teacher to remotely educate a student through the robot while simulataneously pupeteering the robot.
