Facebook and Amazon's insanity only seems to continue with no sign of slowing down anytime soon. Now, the two big conglomerate giants want to move into the uncharted territory of reading human emotions, both in their own ways.
Facebook wants a robot that has five senses which can read human emotions. Facebook wants "emotionally sensitive" robots that can explore the world, identify objects and people and enable its users to make more friends, Dailymail reported.
The robots would be fitted with wheels or tank-like caterpillar treads that would allow them to trundle about their environment.
Alternatively, such robots could be fitted out with drive systems that would allow them to move around underwater, fly through the air or float in space, Facebook suggest in their patent.
