She also gives off facial expressions and emotions, like happiness and sadness. It's literally our childhood nightmare come true.This Silly Exercise ChairWhat you're looking at is the Tao exercise chair. The main draw is arms that you push, pull, and move using your body to get a core workout in. We tried it at CES and found it pretty awkward and silly, so until something better comes along, we'll gladly stick to the gym.Read More:12 Gadgets That Will Raise Your Home's IQ This YearThis Exploding Kittens Card Game Is The Next Cards Against HumanityIs Your Password On This List Of Worst Ones? This Incredible 13-Year-Old Invented A Lego Braille Printer13 Comedians Who Will Make You Laugh Every Time
