We already met Olly, a Web-connected robot from Mint Digital that emits odors according to social-media alerts. Well, meet Olly's cousin Molly, also a generous social-media bot.

Instead of doling out smells, however, she hands out candy when you reach a set number of retweets. It's the sweet tweet life.

Think of it as having your own personal Pavlovian experiment. Molly will encourage you to create ever-more-interesting tweets to get your candy faster.

Olly and Molly are currently raising cash together on Kickstarter.

Molly is available for a $55 Kickstarter pledge, should the project reach its funding goal. A candy refill is included. A $105 pledge gets you full Olly and Molly units so you can smell and eat your tweets at the same time.
