Adorable 'My Special Aflac Duck' helps kids facing cancer
Hey I'm at the Wynn Ballroom at CES and I have one of the cutest and coolest gadgets I found here.
Oddly it's not for sale.
It's this guy.
[SOUND] The My Special Aflac Duck.
And what this duck is designed to do, is to help kids who are going through cancer treatment.
And this thing is packed with technology.
it is basically a robot.
We have photo sensors up here.
So if it's really dark in a roommate, it automatically deems.
There's a microphone.
You can obviously see their sensors below the wings when I scratch the little guys' belly here He starts moving around.
So you can probably see here there's a sensor in his belly that lights up a little bit like IT, but the sensor can take these different discs that have different emojis on it.
So if I'm getting ready to go to treatment, and maybe I'm feeling sad, and someone asks me how my duck feels I might say he's feeling sad too.
It's a pretty sad duck.
But maybe because we're at CES and we're seeing an amazing duck here, I can say that I'm actually pretty excited too.
[SOUND] I couldn't have said it better.
One of the other cool things is there's a disk that has a PICC line on it.
So, when a kid's getting ready to go through chemo, you can have Aqua Duck here go through chemo too.
So this goes on his belly, and then they can put a syringe on the other side.
And that way the child could see his little pal go through chemo and know that it's not too scary.
So not only is this duck one of the coolest things at CES, it's also going for such a great cause.
Right now you see these ducks cost $200 and Aflac is paying that.
So no kid who's going through this treatment needs to be without a care duck, basically.
So again, this is the my Aflac duck made by Sproutel
And I can't say it any better than that.
