In a first for robot kind, Kirobo, the Japanese robot astronaut that arrived at the International Space Station last month, has spoken to Earth. Kirobo, a 13-inch-tall android, will be at the ISS for about 18 months.
"On August 21, 2013, a robot took one small step toward a brighter future for all," he said, before going on to wish Earth a good morning.
Kirobo speaks Japanese, and is capable of voice and emotion recognition and natural language processing. He'll be chatting with Japanese astronaut Koichi Wakata when the future ISS commander arrives at the station later this year.
Computerize toy in space, not a true robot.
Good luck to the toy manufactore of this illustrated robot.
Well, Kirobo is step one.
Next, we're going to have robots capable of performing actions and being able to hold a conversation with humans; and recognizing emotions.
Interesting that Toyota manufactured this robot. Also could confirm that Japan (and South Korea) will be world leaders in robot manufacturing, with the US taking third place.
Then again, Japan has some weird aspects of its culture, like South Korea. The US doesn't have much use for robots that aren't built for working purposes.
