Description of Tendar
A virtual pet that feeds on laughter, surprise and tears.
Bring Guppy out of its virtual fishbowl and into the real world, and feed it through a well-balanced diet of feels. Guppy will learn and evolve based on players’ facial expressions and social interactions – the more faces it can scan, the better! Guppy can also recognize and respond to over 200 objects, building up knowledge as it interacts more and more with the physical world. Watch as Guppy takes stock of its newfound knowledge to evolve from a non-verbal AI to a unique creature with its own personality – but beware that sentience may lead to a full blown existential crisis!
