The Huggable Bear sits in an empty room at Boston's Children Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts.  Huggable is a social robotic protoype that is being used in an experiment between Boston's Childen Hospital and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The goal of the experiment is to determine whether the robot can have therapeutic value for children who have to endure long hospital stays. The bear's talking and movements are remotely controlled by Hospital Staff from outside of the room.
