On July 17th, The Yucatan Times published an article featuring “the world’s first family robot” called Jibo.
And now, on October 5th, Japanese Electronics maker Sharp announced the launch of a “robot phone” called RoboHon, designed by renowned creator Tomotaka Takahashi.
RoboHon is an 8-inch-high robot with a 2-inch screen on the back and a camera and projector built into its face. It walks, talks, dances, and connects to LTE. RoboHon is capable of identifying people by their face or voice, and will act accordingly, telling them they have a new message or to smile for the camera.
But unlike your smartphone, the social robot also boasts some characteristics that help make it feel more like a companion than a device.
It is basically the embodiment of the idea that your phone is your best friend.
Sharp says it’ll release RoboHon in the first half of next year. No pricing has been announced yet.
Check out the video and be ready to fall in love with RoboHon!
