When the contact signs into MSN Messenger the action figure turns 180 degrees to face the user to notify them that the contact is signed in. The green LEDs indicate the online status of the Messenger contacts (i.e. Busy, Be Right Back, Away, etc.). The Send buttons are used to send messages to contacts via MSN Messenger. At its heart are three Phidget servo motors, three green LEDs, three Phidget touch sensors, a Phidget Interface Kit, and a quad servo board
