Toyota to Launch Sales of 'Kirobo Mini', a Small Talking Robot.
Japan’s largest automaker Toyota will begin selling a 10-centimeter-tall (4 inch) talking robot called Kirobo Mini across Japan in early 2017. This Robot is Priced at around $390, and it is small enough to fit into a car cupholder.
Toyota is billing Kirobo as capable of responding to human emotions while engaging in conversation and moving its head and hands.

Toyota will position Kirobo as a communication partner developed for companionship just as surveys of Japanese consumers show a declining affinity for automobiles. One poll by Japan’s automakers association released in April found about 30 percent of respondents under age 30 had no interest in cars at all.

Kirobo Mini is a miniature communication partner developed to provide companionship. It fits in the palm of the hand and is only 10cm high when seated. It turns its head toward the person speaking and engages in casual conversation while moving its head and hands. Its compact size means it can be taken just about anywhere, helping it to fulfill its role as a cuddly companion always on hand for heart-touching communication.

At work.

Nice.

Good to see technology updating things like the old 'Furby' concept.

Eventually Disney-Lukas will have BB-8's and D2's as interactive.

Not just the remote control things running around atm.

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.

Is there any particular reason you repeatedly post these external links and cut-and-copy text to the TTA forum? The expectation is that you also provide some sort of personal commentary about its pros and cons, and whether or not you think it's advantageous to, or detracts from, the quality of life, or how it could benefit you—or not.

At any rate, I read about this Kirobo thing in the Aussie media days ago; it's old news.

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.
