Toys, robots, and Kermit

Adding Emotional Characteristics to Consumer Electronics with Pete Froslie
(the link above takes you to an interview which features several projects and 4 videos, none of which were directly linkable, sorry!)

Froslie has several instillation pieces that offer a new and fanciful way to interact with childhood objects. I think the concepts behind his projects are solid, his integration of new tech into older toys is creative and made me think. The execution left a little to be desired, none of the projects really lived up to their potential. The videos are relatively short and worth a look.
