Petimo

"Petimo" is an interactive robotic toy designed to protect children from potential risks in social networks and the virtual world and helps them to make a safely connected social networking environment. It adds a new physical dimension to social computing through physically touching the robots. This new dimension of authentication provides extra safety in making friends and this process updates a centralized database. The physical touch of robots will help prevent malevolent adult strangers being added as friends.
