spore100m-sbThe EA and Will Wright video game Spore has been on the market for a while now and is one seriously cool video game. The game allows you to take your character from a single cell through evolution all the way to a space faring species trading with an entire galaxy.

EA says that since the game launched in September 2008 there have been about 100 million creations added to the Spore universe. Out of the 100 million creations in the universe, 31,017,761 are creatures, 19 times as many creatures as there are on Earth says EA.

Haptic mutant Tribble/Bunny creature
In his attempt to build a better tribble thing, roboticist Steve Yohanan has come up with a Haptic creature that looks like a tribble with bunny ears attached. One that raises the creep factor, by having no facial features. This robot uses touch feedback as it’s only way to communicate.

It’s full of pressure sensors and the need to lull you into a false sense of safety with lots of fur and no face. It will be able to sense how you touch it or stroke it, and it will respond with breathing motions, ear wiggles or purring. What we have here is a fancy fur slipper that’s been sewn up after installing some gear. I just wish I worked for the company, because I’d find a huge bin full of these things and recreate the classic trek image above.
