By turn freaky, by turn adorable, this robotic avatar, nubot, was created by Japanese planning company Nuuo for use in staff meetings between different places. Created by the same guys who worked on the Tiny Riot App, the robot is a little doll with a screen as a face. Using webcam and Skype, you can manipulate the doll's movements as if you are actually there. Similar to W+K's virtual Christmas Dinner and del Campo Nazca Saatchi & Saatchi's friend recovery, you can be there when your faraway friends, family or colleagues need you. You just can't eat the noodles.
