This is a robotic owl that looks around for cool people, and can tell whether you’re happy or upset. If you’re excited enough, he will eventually let you take a sticker (or other small giveaway). He’s named Archimedes, after Merlin’s familiar in The Once and Future King. Of course, it’s also reminiscent of the cyborg owl in Blade Runner… and, apparently, one in Clash of the Titans (which I’ll have to check out).
