Context: Laughter can bring people together. It can help us feel more alive and empowered. Laughter therapy, also called humor therapy, is the use of humor to promote overall health and wellness. It aims to use the natural physiological process of laughter to help relieve physical or emotional stresses and discomfort.

Product: The GiggleBot is envisioned to sit on your desk at work, at home or even school. He looks like an ordinary object until you tickle him and he begins to giggle and squirm. The GiggleBot has one of the strangest giggles you have ever heard. He also wobbles when he giggles and sometimes tends to lose balance like we do. He has a collection of odd laughter sound bites to keep you laughing which can be played by hitting the buttons at its base.
