The robot can make out certain objects by comparing them to images stored on it. When it fails to discern something, it becomes "distressed," indicated by a red light appearing on its head. It can then be reassured by someone stroking it--or swiping a sensor on its back.
The robot is also able to recognize human faces and will react by wagging its tail and ears if it sees someone.
