Experience archive #8 : Availabot

From those super-talented chaps over at BERG comes Availabot. First prototyped some time ago now but going into full production soon we always admired this tangible status indicator and all of the natural human behaviours it affords at the (physical) desktop. From BERG – “Availabot is a physical representation of presence in Instant Messenger applications. Availabot plugs into your computer by USB, stands to attention when your chat buddy comes online, and falls down when they go away.”
