Cutest robots ever

Tweenbots. The name conjures up the image of a robot army of Hannah Montana fans, or Terminators as designed by Sanrio.

Created by Kacie Kinzer as part of her thesis research, Tweenbots are:
... human-dependent robots that navigate the city with the help of pedestrians they encounter. Rolling at a constant speed, in a straight line, Tweenbots have a destination displayed on a flag, and rely on people they meet to read this flag and to aim them in the right direction to reach their goal.
Very cool. Also, adorable.
