>> All right, I'm here joined with Lindsay Lawlor, the creator of the electric giraffe. What was the inspiration behind this thing?
>> Well, we got this little toy model from Japan and we looked at that and said, well, can we make that bigger.
>> Can you show us maybe a few of the ways that people can interact with the giraffe itself?
>> One of the things that's happening right now is we've just added these USB cameras into his eyeballs, so he's actually seeing and broadcasting right now out on the net where you can see. And then up here we've got little touch sensors and you touch him and he knows when you're touching him with these little piece of electric sensors.
>> Now what do you feed the giraffe?
>> Little green letters with numbers on it.
>> All right.
>> This is what he eats.
>> I also eat the same thing. If you'd like to feed me that, I'd totally down with that.
>> I like that. ^M00:02:05 [ Music ] ^M00:02:07
