Creepy Little Very Expensive Smartphone Robot
The RoboHon, announced last year, is finally landing on Japanese shelves, and it’s got a hefty price tag to go with it – 198,000 Yen, or around £1300.
RoboHon’s built-in LTE antenna lets you make and receive calls as normal, though how you’d feel about talking away into a robot‘s crotch in public is a different matter entirely.
The rear screen lets users read messages too, though the little fellow will happily read them out for you if you’re busy, before sending replies you’ve dictated to it. It’s like having your own secretary, albeit one that’s less than a foot tall with no pulse.
Naturally, RoboHon will dance along with you at parties, while its built-in eye cameras snaps photos and shoots videos to play back to you later, courtesy of a built-in 720 projector.
