4. Qoobo Petit

Qoobo is a therapeutic robot inside a cushion. Yes, you read that correctly. When you pet it, it happily wags a tail in response. According to Qoobo, “it’s comforting communication that warms your heart”. The ‘Gadget Guy’ says it’s a perfect gift for nursing home patients, although it’s gaining popularity among teens in Japan. Look out for this one, it’s coming to the U.S. later this year.
