Ever wonder what the next phase in human robotics is? Well I think we just found it. The robots name is Palro and it comes from a group of Japanese scientists. In Japan robotics is a huge industry, one which eclipses any other in the world. This next generation of robot does not only have voice recognition, but carries on conversation with animation. Granted in this model there are pre-programmed answers into the mainframe of this digital creation, but this truly shows where humanoid robotics is going. Check out the video and let us know what you think.
As we all know, robotics is serious business in Japan with different companies trying to outdo other companies’ robots with newer functions and updated intellect. One such robot that is in the running is the mini humanoid PALRO made by Fuji Soft, which is now being developed to speak in English. And we mean not just talk, it can actually converse with humans.
Apart from its female voice, PALRO features 20 joints, five microphones, voice recognition, mono speakers, a 0.3-megapixel camera, WiFi, a USB port, an Intel Atom 1.6GHz processor, 1GB internal memory, 4GB flash memory, and a set of sensors. It stands 39.8 centimeters tall and weighs 1.6 kilograms, although we are still baffled why it is squat most of the time.
