The thought of coming home to an empty apartment can make you feel depressed. Well sunshine is here all the way from Japan. Nuvo-a humanoid Robot can become your house companion. Someone to talk to, (and who does not talk back to you) can be quite an experience. Nuvo is originally designed for the Japanese market, but has found a huge response in the States. From giving company to the elderly to obeying voice commands the Nuvo is here to stay. The humanoid robot will be your helper and companion, Nuvo is much like a pet that can tell you the time and date, take pictures of your place while you’re away, and play music. It reacts to conversational commands, and also responds to general environmental stimuli like TV shows or guests.
At $7000 it is quite an expensive partner to have that does not share your life though.
