At the end of 2013, our jaws dropped when we took a closer look at the intense, animal-like robots that Google acquired by buying Boston Robotics.

Here are some of our favourites.
Paro is a therapeutic robot for people with Dementia and Alzheimer's who are in hospitals that don't allow pet therapy with real animals.
WowWee makes smartphone controlled robots, like MiP, that can help you cart objects around the house or just have fun.
