Sure we've covered other robotic fortune tellers in the past, but none of them have cost anywhere close to $US75,000. Now, to be fair, as far as robotic swamis go, this one looks amazing. Utilising "cutting-edge" AI and over 30 facial motors, this swami can learn his own name, wink at you as you walk by, or even answer all of life's questions (as any swami worth its salt should be able to).
