eBee is an electronic robotic bee designed as MMU’s Mascot. She was originally born under research funding (PR/2002/0119, 2001-2002) entitle “Intelligent Agent Technology and Voice Recognition in the creation of MMU Mascot”. It was funded by Multimedia University (MMU) and led by Goh Ong Sing.
The digital honeybee was conceived on 1 August 2001, is 7cm in height and weighs 200gms in weight. With dark brown eyes, a silver-blue complexion, and stripes on his body, the eBee represents the robotic honeybee with adorable childlike qualities.
A little naughty and emotional, the eBee however, is intelligent and friendly. He enjoys entertaining people, especially impressing female students with his magic tricks. Forever an optimist, the eBee is always looking for more ways to introduce MMU to the world. Sophisticated and independent, the eBee constantly tries to upgrade himself to become the best that he can be.
Being a databank like the eBee does have its advantages. The eBee is always ready to provide information and is very resourceful. That of course, might have something to do with his favourite reading material, encyclopedias. Besides reading, the eBee also enjoys travelling, surfing the Internet as well as playing computer games. He also enjoys a bit of bee racing and loves sunflowers.
