Ernest 10.5

Ernest 10.5 has social drives. He loves cuddling with other Ernests.

See the 3D demo here (better with Chrome).

Ernest 10.5 is similar to Ernest 10.4 except that he constructs bundles to represent other Ernests. These bundles become attractive when he discovers that he can cuddle with other Ernests (same principle as with food).
