A farm in Esmont, Virginia recently announced that it needs a ton of volunteers to snuggle with its baby goats. Caramont Farm houses more than 120 goats, who produce fresh and aged cheeses for their farmers. This news comes in hot off the wire, after the farm realized their due for 90 goats this February.


If you consider yourself an exceptional cuddler, Caromont Farms has a sign-up sheet online. where folks can volunteer for four-hour shifts from early February through March.


Unfortunately this job's straight up something out a dream, and those open slots filled up quicker than you liked this post. But actually, maybe.

Pixar technical director Alonso Martinez made this adorable little robot that's sure to give you the awwws. Described as a "desk companion," Mira is capable of tracking faces in order to play a game of peek-a-boo with the user. According to Martinez, 

Mira is a desk companion that makes your life better one smile at a time. This project explores human robot interactivity and emotional intelligence. Currently Mira uses face tracking to interact with the users and loves playing the game “peek-a-boo”. As her understanding of the world and people's emotions get richer so will her ability to interact with people in a more meaningful way.

When Mira sees you during a game of peek-a-boo, she wobbles and chirps with excitement, which surely makes long days stuck at a desk easier. There's no word on whether or not Martinez plans to bring Mira to the consumer market, but if he does, you can bet I'll be first in line to buy one.
