The Conan Hugging Loveseat is the first fully-robotic hugging loveseat. Visitors can relax on the Loveseat and let Conan listen to their concerns, express his love (yes, the couch actually talks), offer a relaxing back and bottom massage, and extend a warm embrace. Participants can bring a friend or come alone; we'll capture the moment with a souvenir photo. Lucky participants win Team Coco gear, while supplies last.
Designed and built by Deeplocal, the Conan Hugging Loveseat is 500 pounds of pure love. However, behind the soft embrace is a lot of heavy machinery. Inside the steel frame are two industrial motor controllers and four industrial linear actuators, creating 250 pounds of strength per joint. Though the couch is immobile, it features many aspects of an advanced mobile robot, including steel/aluminum frame construction, linear actuators, motor controllers, microprocessors, AGM batteries, and wifi communication. With the simple addition of wheels, it would be possible to drive it around like a remote controlled car (but don't tell Conan that).
