Claque - an organized body of professional applauders in French theatres and opera houses. Members of a claque were called claqueurs.

By the 19th century, claques were a staple of French theatre, and claque leaders were extremely influential-the claque became a clique. Individual claquers specialized in different services: there were professional laughers for comedies and weepers for tragedies.

The article writer is looking for something a bit different to what the kickstarter is about. But there is a market for a companion bot who will give you unconditional approval (ie a mechanical labrador).

(i just think that the first, expensive, ones will be AI enhanced sex dolls)

Clap on. Clap off. Scream while peeing. The Clapper.

Behold, the future of the world under President Cheeto! On the other hand, if he had a few thousand robotic clappers, he could stop campaigning now that the Election is a couple years past.

This ranks a solid #3 on the list of robots I'd feel really uncomfortable being murdered by.

Subby, we call your mom the Big Flapper, and that's not a reference to her mouth after she takes the dentures out.
