Finally, a robot that “receives”. Researchers at Toshiba in Japan have created a talking bot that can be used as a voice-activated universal remote control in addition to the formulation of pitches closes on human beings. The 5-pound, 11-inch-tall android is called ApriPoko, and the ability to learn to watch electronic control her and ask questions about his behavior. When you use an infrared device, the robot senses signal and ask the user “What did you just do?” If you say something like “I turned on the TV”, undertake the command to the memory, and you can carry out these functions by voice. Apparently, the little boy is still in R & D, but there are plans to turn this technology into a consumer device – one which the company swears not to kill in your sleep.
