View Full Version : A robot for MSN Messenger that can chat, search, suggest

05-30-2006, 06:54 PM

Invasion of the Robots Contest : Microsoft is calling developers worldwide to create a robot for their MSN Messenger and Windows Live Messenger. This robot won't have eyes, legs or hands but a smart tongue and some brain.

If you are still confused, think of the MSN robot as a smart cousin of YahooHelper that automatically adds itself as your buddy in Yahoo Messenger. Or add [email protected] to your Messenger contacts and start a conversation with the bot. (Compatible with Windows Live Messenger and MSN Messenger 7.x.)

The winning MSN Robot (40.000$ in total prizes) should be able to chat, give you customer service support, perform searches, make suggestions, search jobs, tell you traffic situation, decide your dinner menu, play games and more.
