Invasion of the Robots Contest : Microsoft is calling developers worldwide to create a robot for their MSN Messenger and Windows Live Messenger. This robot won't have eyes, legs or hands but a smart tongue and some brain.

If you are still confused, think of the MSN robot as a smart cousin of YahooHelper that automatically adds itself as your buddy in Yahoo Messenger. Or add to your Messenger contacts and start a conversation with the bot. (Compatible with Windows Live Messenger and MSN Messenger 7.x.)

The winning MSN Robot (40.000$ in total prizes) should be able to chat, give you customer service support, perform searches, make suggestions, search jobs, tell you traffic situation, decide your dinner menu, play games and more. Click here to register for the Invasion of the Robots Contest
