Howard is a (fictional) “anthrodroid,” an anthropomorphic android, that is the mascot of this site. He is inspired by my dream to create an embedded artificial general intelligence to be my friend.
His look is inspired by red huskies, and actually by a previous fursuit of mine. More details are in the article explaining having him as the mascot of this site.
I actually hope to also someday build Howard in the real world. It may not be a perfect prototype at first, but it’ll be a start. Articles on bringing Howard into the real world also fall into this valley of posts as well.
