Lovot Robot: Smart Feeling Robot
Lovot Robot, Lovot, Feeling Robot
Lovot Robot is a smart feeling robot that does not have life, but being with one is comforting and warm,” said Kaname Hayashi, president of Groove X and leader of the development team that created Pepper, the semi-humanoid robot from SoftBank Robotics. “We want people to see that though something may seem useless at first glance, it serves a meaningful function in other ways. Lovot Robot has tactile sensors on every surface, LCD eye displays, high speed movement and a high-powered computer. It even has dilating pupils. Lovot also functions as a makeshift surveillance camera or baby monitor by transmitting live footage from a device on its head. For those concerned about privacy, it can function without an internet connection and its cameras can be configured so the footage is not preserved in any way.
