Robots Will Be the Next Smartphones, Says Japanese Inventor

Robots Will Be the Next Smartphones, Says Japanese Inventor | Heron | Scoop.it

Tomotaka Takahashi (CEO of Robo Garage) on he future of robots: "The next generation of robots will be used as an information device like a smartphone. Smartphones already have voice recognition technology but it is not used much as people are not comfortable talking to a grey black box. If it had a human shape, we would be willing to talk to it. I am now designing a robot to be the next communication device. It will be able to talk like a phone."
