EMIEW2, Social Robot

Recently Hitachi unveiled a new version of its humanoid robot, EMIEW2. This robot can distinguish between different voice and converse with people. It can move around on bumpy surfaces, and it is overall a very interactive robot. But that’s nothing new.

Have you ever lost something in the void, and never seen it again? Wait no more! The newest version of EMIEW2 can actually help find things that are lost! Show an object to EMIEW2 once, and it will remember it in the database. When asked to find objects, the EMIEW2 communicates with multiple cameras around the area to effectively find something.

EMIEW2 is mainly used to help people, and while there are currently no plans to commercialize it, but the developers believe that they will become a standard feature of hospitals, tourist attractions, and possibly even the home.

Or watch it recognize objects (it’s in Japanese, but there are a few subtitles that will hopefully help) here:¬†http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jUgFnBPBxbo
