President Obama met a giant talking robot giraffe on Wednesday. The president got the chance to interact with giraffe at the "White House Maker Faire" an event that "celebrates every maker — from students learning STEM skills to entrepreneurs launching new businesses to innovators powering the renaissance in American manufacturing."
“Look at this! I like those ears," Obama said. “Secret Service may not like that,” he said when giraffe maker Lindsay Lawlor of San Diego said that it can carry 30 people.
“Hee hee. That tickles,” the giraffe said as Obama rubbed its sensors.
And here's a longer video of Obama with the giraffe:
