Auti – Toy to Train Autistic Kids Positive Social Behaviors

Auti is a furry interactive robot toy that’s currently under development. It has sensors that detect sound and touch, and responds positively to gentle handling and soft voices. But it shuts down when hit or shouted at. The idea is to train autistic children in good social behaviour at a young age, so they can interact more successfully with non-autistic kids.
